Artworks love working with great British manufacturers like Adey. Collaborating with interior architects Wylde IA, the challenge was to conjure up a creative environment in the newly built office above the plant. A 4-week installation including 50 linear metres of Alto Tex fabric walling and 30 ceiling features using Alto float, blade and grid certainly kept our team on their toes! The internal branding and scheme paid homage to the journey of Adey’s innovation and even included a dedicated training centre.
Unique timeline corridor using Alto blades
A walkway through the factory was designed to access the office. Working closely with Adey, we created a product development timeline to guide visitors through. Acoustic Alto Blades were used all along the inner wall to dampen factory noise, which we designed and installed utilising key clamps. Like a giant set of Meccano, it was fully built onsite and Alto blades slotted into place without using any physical fixings.
Making an impact
The quirks in this scheme really made it unique. Floor graphics, glazing manifest and ceiling acoustics were shaped to echo company branding. Striking, large artworks and wall graphics helped make an impact in the reception, and a mock shop-wall created product display space.
Alto & Copper pipe detail
Those in the Plumbing industry won’t be surprised to know we made good use of copper pipe throughout the scheme, from bespoke artwork through to bathroom mirror frames. Faux neon taglines lit up chic break-out spaces and there was even a giant scrabble board created for the staff.
We worked closely with the Adey branding team and Artwork Solutions to develop an interior scheme that uses a variety of surfaces, finishes and colours using the Adey colour palette with pops of energetic reds and copper accents as a reference to plumbing and pipes, it balances the professional greys and blues. but has a sense of the “quirky” personality of the leadership team.Wylde IA
