Mirrl Ltd is a Glasgow based manufacturer of a hardwearing lacquered resin surface material. It is inspired by the appearance of an ancient lacquer effect produced by layering coloured tree sap onto wood by craftsmen in Aomori on the island of Hokkaido. http://surfacedesignshow.com/exhibiting/exhibitor-profile/mirrl-ltd

These large format tiles by Porcelain Tiles benefit from the latest compaction technology so can be offered in sizes up to 3.2m tall by 1.6m wide but in a lightweight 6mm thickness, meaning they can also be applied to hidden doors and integrated kitchen units. www.porcelain-tiles.co.uk

Moorland is from V4 Wood’s latest collection Landscapes. The extra wide engineered European oak planks are finished by traditional hand tools to plane and scrape the surface, deliberately leaving tool marks, further accentuated with muted natural colours and finished with hard wax oils. http://www.v4woodflooring.co.uk/
