Our Process

Our Process

We find form in the intrinsic qualities of nature and the processes we have to replicate them. Thus, our surfaces reflect the beauty of wood and stone in their physical state and allow that authenticity to show through.

At Panasphere, our process has evolved to intimately combine the fields of the forestry and wood products industry, architecture, manufacturing and materials research. This interdisciplinary approach was born of the necessities of building a sustainable and ambitious company.

Our process demands a high level of collaboration between craftspeople and designers and we do as much as possible in-house: manufacturing and innovating our own paneling products.

THERMALLY FUSED LAMINATE (TFL)

Panasphere Premium Surfaces uses Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL) to create all its premium products. TFL is produced by thermally fusing a sheet of decorative paper directly to a substrate such as MDF or particleboard. Benefits of TFL include:

  • Durable – resistant to scratches and impact
  • Environmentally friendly – uses less resources to produce than HPL
  • Designer and Architect Friendly – any design can be used as the decorative paper
  • Budget Conscious – costs less than HPL to provide the same look and feel
  • Sustainable – using recycled wood products creates an endless supply of raw material

Our Colors and Textures

Each of our panels are unique creations that imitate the authentic look and feel of the actual product. At Panasphere we have a passion for detail. We encourage you to touch and feel our products. Our Burl product lines are inspired by the natural grains of the real wood to create an authentic match in each of our products. Every small detail is preserved, including the way the wood is cut, and carefully imitated to create our premium Burl surfaces. Our Burl products will allow you to bring a piece of nature indoors to any of your interior spaces. Our Azure product lines are inspired by modern and architecturally pleasing designs. From our unique leather designs to our visually appealing linen patterns, you will be able to create spectacular finished surfaces. Our Aura product lines create the sophisticated look and feel of stone surfaces for a fraction of the cost of installing the real thing. We have classic Italian Marble designs such as Statuario Venato and Emperador Dark that will make any interior space a work of art.
