Angus Stocks, president of Smith & Fong, visited the Surfaces flooring show in Las Vegas last month to see new innovations and confirm that bamboo flooring still has a strong foothold in the market. While at the show Angus stopped by the Misura men’s clothing store in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino to review a Plyboo installation of Neopolitan flooring. After years of high-traffic use it looked—and was holding up—great. The high-contrasting colors and fine consistent striations that make up the distinctive Plyboo Neopolitan look are unique to Smith & Fong. Next time you are in Las Vegas, go take a look. It’s a great store and a great floor.

Massachusetts General Hospital, The Lunder Building is recognized by Architectural Record for its LEED Gold certification.
Heathcare Facilities are moving to a new philosophy, fostering wellness by providing natural environments that help promote healing for sick patients. Massachusetts General Hospital features a floor to ceiling, glass atrium with live hanging plants that are viewable through patient recovery rooms. Natural materials are incorporated into the interior design for aesthetics and because of their low VOC properties.
Massachusetts General Hospital Lunder Building is a tribute to a growing commitment to environmental construction. More than a third of all the materials used for construction were recycled or locally extracted or manufactured materials. Quickly renewable materials, such as bamboo plywood, was utilized further reducing environmental impacts. Plyboo® is proud to be one of the products that enabled Mass General to achieve Gold certification by contributing LEED credit points to the project.
Plyboo Edge Grain Amber plywood was chosen as the product of choice for its FSC certification for sustainable forestry and for its low emitting SoyBond adhesive which is 100% formaldehyde free. Over 1000 sheets of plywood were fabricated into wall cladding and shelving for the patient recovery rooms, benches and featured wall seating in the public spaces, and veneer on the sub-level radiation doors.
As you know, PlybooSquared was featured in the EcoFabulous Modern Living House in the Dwell on Design Show in Los Angeles last month. It was a wildly successful showing, and the media center made with Plyboosquared bamboo plywood and bamboo veneer got lots of attention; it even makes a cameo in this video featured on TakePart.com.
The house was recently sold on Ebay to a lucky individual.
