Application
Residential fit out

A luxury home in the prestigious South Kensington district of London has been completely refitted with none other than MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) and MEDITE MR MDF.

The opulent interiors of the large town house were designed and created especially for the project by Infinitus Bespoke Interiors, to meet the desires of the client for a completely art deco inspired home. 

The design brief demanded each room reflect the demure decadence of the 1930s and 40s, and bring a unique character to every space. The brief defined the bedrooms and bathrooms be refitted to incorporate smooth, clean lines, high gloss surfaces, mirror cladding and ambient lighting, while the installation of a bar and cinema room further reflect a taste for extravagance.

Although MDF may not traditionally be first thought of when tasked with redesigning a luxury home, Infinitus Bespoke Interiors specified the panels as the best for the project, based on extensive previous work with the products.

Andrew Fishwick, director at Infinitus Bespoke Interiors explained: “The original brief was ambitious to say the least, but over the course of the project, working very much hand in hand with the client, it was well and truly surpassed.

“We decided on MEDITE MR and MTX as they by far offered the best solution, to be able to achieve a polished, authentic art deco look. About 110 sheets of MEDITE MR were used throughout the house not only to clad the bar structure and create the iconic art deco shapes in each room, but as backing for other features such as the mirror cladding.

“In the bathrooms and anywhere it was likely that the fittings would be in contact with water, we used MTX to ensure the longevity of the installation. We used about 10 sheets of MTX across these areas. Although it may be that the client will want to update her bathroom in the future, it’s not every day that you can guarantee MDF for up to 50 years, even in contact with water. MTX enabled us to do this with confidence.”

Aside from their abilities to resist humidity and moisture, MEDITE MR and MTX were chosen for their smooth and consistent qualities, making them perfect for machining into the bespoke shapes required by CNC router.

“We needed a material with no grain structure to be able to achieve a perfectly smooth, seamless finish. This was especially important for the curved shapes featured in the bar and for the bathroom ceiling design, which features tightly curved, egg shaped cladding that is backlit for effect,” explained Andrew. 

MTX was created as a sustainably produced MDF panel with durability and dimensional stability in mind. It is guaranteed for up to 50 years above ground, and provides architects and designers with an entirely new construction material, for design flexibility and endless opportunities for creativity. 

As acetylated MDF, MTX can be used in applications where normal MDF panels cannot, and still retains all the design, fixing, and machining flexibility of regular medium density fibreboards. 

MEDITE MR is a moisture resistant MDF panel designed for use in indoor humid conditions such as kitchen or bathroom installations or furniture, and is a perfect substitute for softwoods or hardwoods where more machining flexibility is needed. 

Andrew concluded: “As this was an extensive, lengthy project, it was also beneficial for us and the client to use MTX and MEDITE MR as it saved us a lot of time which would have otherwise been spent plaining timber. Instead, many of the decorative pieces left our workshop completely finished and ready for installation. 

“To look at the house now, it’s hard to believe it’s the same one we started work on, the transformation is so complete.”
