Bozboz used Lintec Graphic Films’ Vitrocolour non-PVC process colour film to create vibrant, eye-catching glass surface treatments in the meeting room of its new offices in Sussex.
On the room’s 3m high glass wall, richly-coloured, robot-like marine creatures swim in and out of a coral reef composed of USB sticks and headphone jacks. The concept complements the equally stunning underwater-themed wall murals that stamp the Bozboz brand on other areas of the offices – the work of artists (and Bozboz clients) Goldie and Tats Cru.
‘We wanted a unique space that we could customise. It took a while to find Church Road, but with a wealth of 200-year-old architectural features, like the 15,24m (20-foot) ceilings, it fitted the bill perfectly. Our business is built around people and ideas, and we want a visually-inspiring workplace,’ said CEO Mike Hollingbery.
Removing the interior walls exposed the original central pillars and restored the space to its original proportions. To display these while also dividing the space into useable office and meeting areas, Bozboz specified partitions consisting of 3m high single panels of toughened glass.
Bozboz’s in-house graphics team came up with the USB-and-headphone-jack reef, and after extensive research into environmentally friendly process colour films on the market, Vitrocolour from Lintec Graphic Films was specified for the meeting room walls.
Lintec Graphic Films’ Vitrocolour is a UV-printable gloss polyester with exceptional scratch-resistance, which is especially beneficial for any unprinted areas. The non-PVC film combines exceptional optical clarity, ease of installation and impressive environmental credentials. Capable of being printed with any number of colours, Vitrocolour allows designers to devise vibrant, eye-catching glass surface treatments. Light transmission, colour and positioning can all be varied to provide bespoke treatments tailored to the nature of the space.
Fading can also be applied to all parts of the film, to create see-through, privacy of manifestation as required. A high-specification self-adhesive coating ensures both installation and removal are quick and clean, causing minimal disruption to the working environment and enabling cost-effective rapid re-brand and ‘refresh’ programmes. Vitrocolour films are cleanroom-manufactured to avoid contamination by dust particles, and hard-coated for scratch-resistance and durability.
