Stevens Industries, Inc. is pleased to announce high-impact surfacing will now be available to match the award-winning Legno Collection. Legno debuted in 2014 and was tremendously received by designers, architects and consumers. The collection won an ADEX award for design excellence in early 2015.
Legno is a collection of 18 rich hues, with two woodgrain species, Tokaj Alder and Walnut Tiepolo. These pieces are embossed in registration, expertly matching texture to grain. The addition of matched high-impact material rounds out a collection that also offers edgebanding, five-piece doors and mouldings. Legno high-impact surfacing will be available in 4x8 and 5x12 sizes, in .030 thickness. Stevens is a leader in the field of embossed in registration technology, as the first manufacturer in the United States to produce material for furniture application.
Mike Gibson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, revealed "Our customers look to us for innovation and trust us to provide excellent solutions to their creative needs. Their reception of our Legno Collection was phenomenal. Adding this resilient surface option to the line has been in response to their desire to fully utilize the collection in their projects."
"Focus on design excellence has become more important than ever," said Bill Lane, Marketing & Distribution Chain Manager. "We introduced our first textured lines about a decade ago and have been continually designing new offerings. It's gratifying to see the enthusiasm as the market for thermofused laminate products has expanded in recent years. Legno can be seen in wall panel systems, welcome desks and nurses stations in state-of the art hospitals and cabinetry in high-end condo complexes. Our industry has been quick to embrace new technology to provide customers with options that are environmentally pleasing, without sacrificing style."
Stevens Industries, Inc., a 100 percent employee-owned business, is one of the largest manufacturers of architectural casework and millwork in the United States. The company has a thriving panels and components division, along with lines of education furniture and modular cabinetry.
