Projects

Neville Smith Forest Products Colour Project (2017 - 2018)$6,000
Description
Neville-Smith Forest Products (NSFP) have requested a project that aligns their Tasmanian Oak resource with current trending colour palettes for the built environment. The aim of this project is to develop contemporary interior colour themes for NSFP Tasmanian Oak from research evidence based themes. Post project iterations may consider future colour trends.
