Last week was a very exciting one for Printed Space as we held the first Floorink Press event.
We were joined by the editors and journalists from some of the UK's top Interior Design and Architectural magazines. We gave a presentation at Forbo Flooring's showroom at London's EC1, where a feature floor was on display along with a wall of samples for the journalists and specifiers to take away with them.
As the event was in the heart of London we kept this as the theme. We took a Blue Sky aerial image of the area around the London Eye and gave the Thames river an "Eastenders" blue filter, for the main floor section. For the sample wall, we printed the same area of London in 3 different map styles - Vintage from 1805, A-Z street mapping and 2010 aerial photography from Blue Sky World's data bank. We then layered these across the wall so all 3 styles were featured but the overall picture of London was apparent.
The main floor section will stay at the Forbo showroom for the next couple of weeks. If you are in the area feel free to pop in and have a look. Samples will be available from Donna Cummings at the showroom for you to take away.
Printed Space developed Floorink in partnership with Forbo Flooring Systems. Floorink is a revolutionary new vinyl cushion floor that will allow you to get creative with your floor space. Floorink offers a dramatic and bespoke opportunity to create one off, tailor made flooring designs for commercial and residential interiors. Floorink offers unlimited possibilities for specifiers to create unique and inspiring flooring designs using graphics, high-resolution photography, maps or logos.
Floorink has already been manufactured for many high profile clients across a range of flooring projects from well known restaurant brands, finance corporations and retail stores to educational buildings across the UK. Most recently, the RIBA Stirling Prize nominated Clapham Manor Primary School, which has an impressive A-Z street map floor design in the school’s new extension.
An unusual and unique way to add another dimension to interior projects, Floorink is still everything you would expect from a commercial floorcovering: a quality hard wearing finish, with a 10 year wear layer guarantee and non slip properties. Available in 2m and 4m widths, with worldwide delivery.
Our dedicated website www.floorink.com will be launched very soon.
