The production factory's reception at Vaillant Group's UK office, required a space to promote the company's working values and display their awards and products. It was important that this area belonged to and promoted the staff because it was the room they walked through to begin work. We used a variety of methods and materials to bring this room to life including illuminated displays, fabrics, acrylics and vinyls. We designed and successfully pitched a room concept for Vaillant based on their aspirations and budget. We focussed on light, texture and sleek engineering to promote their message and showcase their products and awards.

The main wall was fitted with an innovative fabric tension system that can be neatly fitted around sockets and switches. A large flat-screen television was also mounted to this wall, which could be screwed through the fabric graphics.

We won the pitch following a short site visit, after which, we presented our ideas to the client using scamps, visuals and 3D drawings with a supporting mood-board.

It was important that this area could be cleaned easily and not obstruct staff who used this thoroughfare several times a day. We chose to remove everything from the floor and suspend it from the ceiling. This allowed the floor to be kept clear from clutter, create smooth, clean lines and restrict the movement of elements. We manufactured bespoke, lockable acrylic display cabinets, hung on tensioned wires to showcase awards and trophies. Literature holders on tensioned wires to match the display cabinets.
We fitted two of their showcase boilers to halo-illuminated, hi-gloss acrylic mounts. These were specially designed to be updatable with new units and text when future products were developed.

Valliant Group's company-wide ethos is promoted through seven icons, each of which carries a short statement. One of the walls was dedicated to the message with cut vinyl lettering and fabricated metal icons with illuminated opal acrylic to the face. These icons were fixed away from the wall by 10mm using a hidden mounting-system which allowed the light to emanate from the sides.

The team at MX Display demonstrated a professional attitude throughout the project. They developed a deep understanding of the brief and produced a design that encapsulated our company ethos. The project was completed on time, within budget, to a high standard and we are very pleased with the results.
