About Formica Formations

Formica Formations challenges New Zealand to go beyond the benchtop and imagine creative applications for Formica laminate. A bi-annual competition, Formica Formations pushes the boundaries and celebrates New Zealand design.  With two categories, one for professional designers and architects and a second for emerging designers who are currently studying or within four years of graduation from a creative qualification, the aim of the competition is to draw out potential world-leading designers of the future. Judged by a panel of renowned designers and architects from NZ and abroad, previous competitions have focused on chairs, tables and creative lighting, all fabricated from Formica laminate.
