Leicester-based Full Square has printed and installed a number of quirky roller blinds for Nottingham City Council's new Strelley Road library.
Full Square worked with local design company NewEnglish Design to create the blinds, printed onto Papergraphics’ Decortex fabric.
The order follows a programme by Full Square owner Claire McFadden to promote the use of Decortex for novel applications to local designers and specifiers. NewEnglish Design responded, using photographic designs to complement the way-finder signage and contemporary look and feel it wanted to create for the library in Nottingham.
McFadden said: “We explained that due to the quality of the components it means that if the blind material did become damaged beyond day-to-day cleaning - or even if they wanted to change the graphics in the future - we could simply print fresh material and replace it, still reusing all of the other components. Nottingham City Council really liked this.”
She added: “The fire rating for this material, as well as the superior lay-flat quality and the natural textile appearance of the blind material sets Decortex apart from anything else that we’ve come across for interior window decoration. The help and support given by Papergraphics has also made this a really straightforward addition to our product and service offering”.
While its focus is on the B2B market, Full Square also offers an online customisable and colour matching blinds service.
