Using Formica as a material is a simple short cut to a retro look in either a café or the home. Like Alison Milner's table, Formverket's kitchenware range is inspired by 1950s and 60s Formica table tops.
The collection is the work of Barbro Tryberg Boberg and includes trays, cutting boards and trivets, all covered with retro-inspired patterns. For example, the Anna/Doris board pictured is a two-sided cutting board with each side featuring a different distinctive pattern. It's made from HDF with a Formica laminate which means it's pretty durable as well as good-looking.
This cutting board costs $40 while trays and trivets are available for $28.
