The month of December this year has been nothing but a joyous month full of celebrations. With the Christmas spirit hovering in the air, Melatone also hit yet another milestone. After months of preparations and hard work, we finally opened our first official Melatone Showroom to the public! It is currently located along the ever-buzzing streets of Apgujeong, Gangnam.
Theme: Cosy Vintage

The Crepe Cake House
Whenever a visitor grace through one of our wacky revolving doors, they will most likely be greeted immediately by a large installation (or by one of our Melatone staffs!) made out of our very own laminates. This objet d’art incorporates our materials with machinery, making it an eye-catching centrepiece.
Needless to say, the Crepe cake House is one the highlights of the showroom. Its shuffling pieces are made out of double-sided laminates. The walls and ceilings coated in our cherry wood laminates to bring about a cosy ambience, with similar laminates applied on the installations some of our custom furniture to match.
Melatone custom-made furniture
As you walk on further into the room, you will finally meet the exquisite custom furniture that has been frequently mentioned: the desks and stools, benches and long tables made entirely out of our Clean Touch and solid coloured HPL. Clean Touch surfaces are perfectly ideal to be applied to such areas of high traffic as it contains higher resistance, such as anti-fingerprint, than the average laminate (which already possess high resistances on its own).
Exterior grade laminates
Following, we have an outdoor exhibit displaying stools made out of our exterior grade laminates. We sit our custom stools outside to stand through all seasons so that we can prove that we are not just all about the talk. Solid laminates like these are ideal for heavy-duty applications. They are thick, high-performance materials that can resist the weather. They are meant for general use in exterior applications that would involve medium to long-term exposure of average levels of sunlight and weathering.
A month full of celebrations,
a milestone reached
Theme: Cordial Futurist
The theme for the second storey of our showroom is designed a little differently than the first. A futuristic take of the first storey, it is a library that holds some of our best samples and collections. We have our samples propped on special sliding shelves, built for your interaction and convenience. The Melatone Showroom was designed to make your experience with choosing surfaces a better one by increasing your interactions with us and our products so that we may guide you in person and answer to your enquiries.
The Grand Opening 2018
As the sun sets, guests started buzzing in, and the Grand Opening commenced automatically. Our Grand Opening lasted for two nights and many distinguished guests and designers popped by for a look as well as curious passersby. The night was simply one to remember as we had people from all sorts of backgrounds come together to learn all about laminates. We also had many friendly Melatone staffs who are always on their toes, ready to assist and to tell you more.
We feasted & feasted
We feasted for two whole evenings. We had a great spread full of bites and finger foods along with booze and punches to accompany. It was a bustling night, and the crowd was terrific.
Introduction & Sharing Session to Melatone Laminates
As our guests filled themselves up with bites, we also held presentations to introduce, share and better-inform everyone about laminates, and the interior trend. Our special guests from Feron also shared about the current material and surface trends in Europe. The presentations had everyone better-informed about laminates, and it’s abilities. It also gave everyone a better idea of its usability and the most current trends to keep people up to date.
Overall, it was a very enriching night. We ate, and we drank and mingled and exchanged with one another. We learnt things that we didn’t know and shared with others what we knew.
Everyone was very attentive throughout the night, and there were a few good questions fired around. We were more than glad and thankful that everyone turned up and had a good time.
That night, our President Mr Sung was a very pleased man. He grinned from ear to ear throughout the entire opening. This has been quite a significant milestone for Melatone as we have come a long way (40 years), and though it’s not always sunshine and rainbows, we pulled through. We are ever so glad and thankful to everyone for turning up throughout the two days of our opening.
