In South Africa, manufacturers are limited to standard Melamine colours available to the furniture industry as a whole.
At Entrawood we were frustrated by the variety on offer, which is not necessarily focused on the office furniture market. We have therefore invested in our own Malemine press to give us the freedom to source colours best suited to the trends and needs of offices.
A grain that isn’t too planked or busy, but rather easy on the eye with an even colour gradient.
We looked for colours that had a natural appearance, avoiding garish tints and hues that age much faster.
We also looked for colours that can easily be paired with strong solid colours, which are usually incorporated into an office space as a representation of corporate identity, but can also be paired with calming monotones and stand alone as the only colour in any furniture piece.
