Wilsonart’s Virtual Design Library Collection Captivates with Intense Visual Intrigue

TEMPLE, Texas , August 13 /Businesswire/ - Wilsonart’s Ambiguous Collection is an exercise in contrasts: woodgrains become concrete, textiles blend into substrates, and geometric patterns fade into backgrounds. Ambiguous is the latest release in 2019’s Virtual Design Library’s Individual Expression series. With Ambiguous, Wilsonart has brought a level of depth typically reserved for fabrics, mosaics and wallcoverings, to the laminate product category.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

Ambiguous draws from natural textures and classic designs while intentionally layering a futuristic aesthetic of stunningly saturated colors and patterns that are smart yet chic; classic yet modern. “Ambiguous Material” is the third of four overarching trends that have inspired Wilsonart’s VDL Collections throughout 2019. “Our new Ambiguous Collection is comprised of 16 patterns that radiate intelligence, visual tension, and a Janus-like quality that simultaneously looks to the past while anticipating the future,” noted Natalia Smith, Design Manager, Wilsonart. “This collection mixes materials together to create visual interest and texture, but it is not always clear or obvious where the designs’ origin came from.”

The expert blending of juxtaposed patterns manifests in a clever combination of familiar textures and patinaed finishes that immediately strike a chord, enhanced with fresh visual intrigue of emerging patterns and subtle embellishments—exotic fusions that provoke curiosity and beg further investigation.

The expert overlays provide a complex depth for the eye to visually consume the laminate finish like a fine wine: beginning with an accentuated terroir, mellowing to a foundational palette, and finishing on a rare note.

The resulting 16 Ambiguous patterns include 14 new designs and two reintroductions that range from cool, cosmic and structural to soft and warm:
