From tables and chairs to bar tops, menu boards, graphics and more, successful design considers all aspects of the cus- tomer experience. VGS offers an in-house design studio, a 110,000-square-foot manufacturing space, product develop- ment, value engineering and rapid prototyping of designs. VGS designs, fabricates and installs elements customized to a brand or space. VSG/Studio D New Crypton Leather Crypton, a leader in performance textiles, is now available in leather. Crypton's chemists worked with technical experts at Conneaut Leather to create a stain-, water- and bacte- ria-resistant leather designed for hospitality furnishings and wall-covering applications. Designed to make the luxury of leather truly practical, it provides a viable alternative to vinyl in high-wear environments. Crypton Athleisure-Inspired Fabrics Carnegie and Gensler collaborated to create PRFM, a new line of high-performance textiles that takes cues from fashion's current darling, "athleisure" wear. The line includes seven patterns suited to contemporary contract settings, not only simulat- ing sportswear's high-performance qualities but also its values such as collabora- tion, connectivity and even competition. Carnegie Bacteria-Resistant, Thermal-Healing Formica Formica Infiniti laminates feature a soft-to-the-touch, super-matte finish that resists bacteria growth, mak- ing them ideal for dining surfaces, countertops and bar wraps. Infiniti's fingerprint resistance is well-suited to any application from countertops, dining tables and accent walls to furniture and doors. The products are designed to stand up to any mishap with thermal healing capabilities. Formica Corporation High-Performance 3-D Laminates The Rebalance INSIGHTS collection of surf(x) 3-D laminates showcases trend- leading designs for decorative surfaces. These laminates can be membrane- pressed or vacuum-formed to contoured surface profiles. A wide selection of patterns and designs includes solid colors, realistic wood grains and abstract patterns.
