Reception Area

The desks shown here are constructed by securing NeatForm to a timber frame.

Neatform Bendy MDF1

First, the frame is assembled. Here the construction is well advanced but the frame is visible above and below the shelf. NeatForm has been secured to the front and side of the desk.

Neatform Bendy MDF2

Here is a clearer view of the front of the desk and its NeatForm skin. The radius is a gentle 3 Metres or so.

Neatform Bendy MDF3

Another desk is seen from the receptionist’s side. The grooves of the NeatForm are more visible and are vertical. Cross-cut NeatForm is the material of choice.

Neatform Bendy MDF4

Laminated, pre-curved NeatForm was fixed to the panels of the front of this desk to decorate them. Two sheets of NeatForm were bonded together in a former to the same curvature as the front of the desk. This was done as a separate exercise (Photograph 7).

Neatform Bendy MDF5

Another view of desks decorated in this way.

Neatform Bendy MDF6

This is a close-up view of the top and decorated panels of the desk to show how they are related one to another.

Neatform Bendy MDF7

The former for these decorated panels is in action: two sheets of NeatForm are glued, grooves to grooves, and forced to assume the curves of the top and bottom parts of the former which are clamped together.

Neatform Bendy MDF8

The decorative laminate is being applied to the curved NeatForm before it is put in its final position.
