Artwork using MDF sells for £415,000

The sculpture lists every football defeat suffered by England and was created by satirical artist, Maurizio Cattelan. The 2.2-metre piece was made using black granite set in medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and steel.

The artwork highlights that wood-based products can be used in much more than just furniture, DIY, and construction. MDF is easy to saw and drill without splintering or chipping.

Caberwood MDF Pro is chip and splinter resistant so can be crafted into even the most intricate of designs. Its smooth quality also allows for paint and other finishes to be added.

In addition, in the UK, there are now many artists and craftsmen who use Norbord’s SterlingOSB as a decorative mainstay of their designs, and many other Norbord panel products. Two examples are Geoff Walker of re-fuze at www.re-fuze.co.uk and Alex Chinneck at www.alexchinneck.com.

Norbord’s brands, SterlingOSB, Caberwood MDF, Contiboard and Caberfloor are well known and are commonly specified by architects, national housebuilders and specifiers.
