Laminate surfacing is formed by subjecting layers of resin-laden paper to extreme pressure—nearly 1,400 pounds/square inch. To realize designer Konstantin Grcic's vision of embedding small crystals into the material, engineers at Abet Laminati had to devise a fabrication process that wouldn't crush the tiny sparklers, yet would preserve the overall integrity of the material. It's an amazing feat.

This pattern is called 'Peak'.
