Situation: The Forum Palace Sports and Recreational Center in Vilnius, Lithuania, is beautifully designed with numerous glass dividing walls. The transparent walls provided an open, spacious atmosphere for the clients, but also created a lack of privacy. Designers were tasked with enhancing privacy while maintaining the ambience. Each room required a unique design and a creative solution.
Solution: The local Huper Optik dealer proposed NRMPS2, a frosted film that looks like sand-blasted glass, to decorate the dividing walls. LLumar film was a perfect choice for the project because it can be cut to any design, by hand or with a computer plotter, and installed at a fraction of the cost of acid etching. And unlike etching, LLumar films can be removed in the event of remodeling. Design and installation was completed in two weeks.
Results: “Multilayer designs applied to both sides of the glass walls gave a three-dimen- sional effect that made all rooms unique and stunning,” said Architect Mr. Velerij Starkovskij. The owners of the Forum Palace agreed the solution surpassed their expectations. “This material can make a statement while still maintaining function,” said General Manager Mr. Ronaldas Matiliauskas. “It’s an inexpensive way to make a large area look customized.”
