  Product: Polaris. Location: Adelaide. Architect: Cox Architecture. Joiner: John Reuther. What do Luciano Pavarotti, Whoopi Goldberg and Don Bradman all have in common? It’s an odd group who seemingly have little in common apart from being famous. The link? They have all performed at Adelaide’s iconic Her Majesty’s Theatre. And now, so has Surface Squared! In fact, we will continue to perform at Her Majesty’s every night for many years to come. Granted, our performance is a little different to the celebrities who grace the stage - but every bit as important. Why? Because our Polaris High Pressure Laminate by ABET Laminati is now a permanent feature act within this historic establishment. Built in 1913, Her Majesty’s is one of the last remaining Tivoli Theatres that were once found in capital cities across the country.

Their products have achieved a range of environmental certifications, which we are pleased to pass on to our Australian customers. For 20 years, ABET Laminati has held ISO 14001 certification, which provides assurance that environmental impact is being continually monitored and improved.  ABET has also obtained both the voluntary ‘Chain of Custody’ certifications that guarantee products have

At Surface Squared we are so excited to showcase K-Block of the Royal Hobart Hospital designed by Lyons Architecture! The project was completed in early 2020 and has delivered many firsts for the RHH. The initial brief from the RHH was quite broad – a wow factor and something that would make the kids excited. The theme that was integrated throughout was “A trip to the Antarctic*” which was represented in the walls, corridors, lighting bedheads and flooring.  Architects: Lyons in collaboration with Terrior Client: Tasmanian Department of Health Builder: John Holland Fairbrother Joint Venture Photography: John Gollings Product: Digital Print Andim Taip from Lyons said “For the lift lobby, this theme was further emphasised with the wall panelling and the ceiling lights.
