Leading Australian decorative surfaces brand, Laminex will be a corporate partner in the inaugural 2014 MPavilion temporary architecture project at the Queen Victoria Gardens, Southbank Arts Precinct in Melbourne.

A unique architecture commission and design event for Melbourne, MPavilion has been initiated by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation with support from City of Melbourne and the Victorian State Government.

Chair of the Naomi Milgrom Foundation, Naomi Milgrom, AO said she was delighted to have a leading design brand on board.

According to Naomi, Laminex’s support for the project allows the Foundation to fulfil their vision to create Sean Godsell’s beautifully designed furniture for this year’s MPavilion. This support also enables truly inspirational design and architecture projects such as the MPavilion to come to life.

The 2014 MPavilion has been designed by award-winning Melbourne architect, Sean Godsell, and was inspired by the annual Serpentine Gallery in London’s Hyde Park. The pavilion design uses recycled wooden flooring, galvanised steel and aluminium mesh to create a lightweight and light-filled contemporary structure.

Laminex Freestyle Curve Winter White was selected for use on kiosk joinery and benches within the garden pavilion structure, and was also used to create 50 limited edition MPavilion chairs, designed by Sean Godsell.

Laminex General Marketing Manager George Bej explains that Laminex is passionate about architecture and celebrating inspirational design; the partnership with MPavilion demonstrates the brand’s commitment to the design community.

Over the four months of the program, the MPavilion will host a series of free seminars, workshops, performances and installations for architects, specifiers, designers and the general public.

The MPavilion will be open to the public until 1 February 2015.
