With hundreds of well-known and well-trusted brands under its belt such as Dulux, Cuprinol, Hammerite, Pollyfilla and many more, AkzoNobel are experts in making coatings, and chances are that you’re never more than a few metres away from one of their products. We worked closely with AkzoNobel and design agency, V2 Studios to help transform 6,400 square feet of space within the head office, into a high-tech customer centre for the business to showcase its brands. The new space allows retailers to immerse themselves in the customer experience and view product innovations before they go to market. The multifunctional environment was designed to inspire, educate and engage not only AkzoNobel customers but also its staff. The Ripple design team worked with V2 to interpret their concepts and then translate them into tangible products, furniture and displays. Following the sign off of our technical specifications, we then manufactured in-house and carried out the installation in Slough.
