SterlingOSB - A genuine work of art!




It seems the popularity of Norbord's SterlingOSB knows no limits! Featuring in many shop window displays, office refurbishments, kitchens, restaurant seating and a multitude of bespoke furniture designs, the appeal for engineered wood panel shows no signs of abating.

One artist who has a long-standing love of SterlingOSB is Richard Yeomans. A recent participant in the BBC's Great Interior Design Challenge uses SterlingOSB to create works of street style art from his studio in West Yorkshire. "I've long been a fan of OSB; I love the fact that it's both natural and man-made. The main thing that drew me to OSB was the texture", said Richard. "I began using it as an exhibition board for displaying my artwork; then I started to use it for my artwork when I had a few off-cuts lying around and no canvas. I use spray paint which can look a bit flat on canvas; the fact that OSB is an industrial product gives these paintings a great street look. In terms of design, I'm very interested in how inexpensive materials can be used in clever ways to create desirable products and spaces. The versatility of OSB makes it perfect."

SterlingOSB is increasingly finding favour in applications previously dominated by softwood ply. Whereas all ply sold in the UK has to be imported, SterlingOSB is a genuinelyhome-grown and sustainable product.
