As a Sustainable Interiors Consultant, I am always looking for products that are environmental and sustainable. DesignerPly by Gunnersen is one of those products.
DesignerPly by Gunnersen was created to allow interior designers and consultants to integrate a plywood that can create a beautiful visual impact within any design space. DesignerPly is beautiful, sustainable and extremely strong due to it being a cross laminated timber.
DesignerPly is a decorative solution that can be used in all types of applications from indoor to high moisture and high volume areas.
I love that Gunersen is an Australian, family-owned, company who inspires designers and architects to create spaces using products created here in Australia. Through their commitment to sell these products, they are educating the industry to care for the environment.
Lissa Gunnersen responded to my two key questions.
Tell us about the environmental and health benefits associated with the manufacture of Designer Ply by Gunnersen.
