In any commercial endeavour, being able to source products that achieve a mix of good looks and durability will have long-term benefits for your bottom line. When Shape Commercial was tasked with providing cafe chairs for the food court at Telecom Place, this balance was critical, says director Daniel Ready.

"The food court has a very high profile, being a windowed site on a busy street frontage. It was important, therefore, that the product we supplied was of a significant statement level, while also being practical and fit for a high-use application."

Shape chose a model that features a high-pressure laminate surface over a ply core.

"The key to the product is the durability offered by HPL over ply. A fully ply product has aesthetic value, but the working surfaces will always be prone to damage. By applying high-pressure laminate to those surfaces we maintain the ply edge, which is what everyone wants to see, while protecting the rest of the chair," says Ready.

Ready and business partner Eric Nienhuis have more than 25 years' combined experience in the commercial fit-out industry. In that time they've worked with private corporations to supply everything from workstations and operator seating to boardroom furniture, local councils wanting public space seating, and tertiary institutes looking for classroom and break-out area furniture.
