Get creative with 153 new architectural finishes
3M DI-NOC Architectural Finishes offer cost-effective and creative solutions for a wide variety of decoration, refurbishment and re-surfacing requirements
3M has launched 153 new on-trend patterns in its popular range of DI-NOC Architectural Finishes, a durable and cost effective solution for creating aesthetically pleasing environments without the expense of replacing fixtures or fittings. The range now includes more than 800 patterns and effects, with major innovations including ‘Effect’ patterns, where the finish changes colour depending on the viewing angle and light levels, and ‘Advanced Metallic’ patterns where the finish has a look of a wallpaper and incorporates small metallic pieces to create a shimmering, reflective effect that varies with the angle of the light source.
The self-adhesive DI-NOC Architectural Finishes can be used to express corporate styles, modernise appearances and optimise interior and exterior assets for refurbishment and new construction. The films’ flexibility to conform to flat and curved surfaces gives fast and easy installation with minimal error and waste, allowing sophisticated designs to be applied with little disruption.
The new patterns were created by 3M following trend research undertaken at international and local design trade fairs around the globe. “With excellent feedback from customers, we developed a series of mood boards with names such as Industrial White and Mellow Rich,” explains Christian Stoehr, Portfolio Manager West Europe, 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “We then used the mood boards as our inspiration to create a set of unique and exciting patterns to enhance our range of DI-NOC Architectural Finishes.”
The newly launched patterns supplement all the existing product families within the range, from wood, metal, textile, stucco and ceramic, to stone, leather and plain colours – offering an even more comprehensive range of architectural finishes for almost every conceivable design requirement.
Recreate natural finishes at a fraction of the cost of traditional materials
“Our DI-NOC Architectural Finishes are known throughout the design and architectural world for their ability to recreate natural materials realistically and at a fraction of the cost of traditional materials,” Stoehr continues. “With over 800 individual finishes, the range offers designers and architects unrivalled creative flexibility and design freedom when working on new builds or refurbishments,” he concludes. “This helps reduce both labour and material costs as well as dramatically reducing the amount of time your business is closed for refurbishment.”
Easy to work with to create a great finish and effect
Hardwearing and resistant to rain and dirt, 3M DI-NOC Architectural Finishes are easy to work with. 3M DI-NOC Architectural Finishes have been used successfully on walls and ceilings, furniture and fixtures – on flat surfaces and curved, indoors and out.
