Studio by 3form Offers Contemporary + Cost-Effective Solutions to Education Design
Studio by 3form, an award-winning division of sustainable material manufacturer 3form, creates innovative design solutions driven by the needs of end-users in educational institutions. Studio by 3form’s budget-friendly product offerings provide schools and universities the opportunity to create environments that foster learning and creativity, while also adding contemporary aesthetic value.
An alternative to traditional wall coverings, Studio by 3form’s Profile Panels and Tiles offer a flexible, easy-to-install and cost-effective solution for educational environments. Three of Studio by 3form’s most recent education installations demonstrate the Profile product line’s versatility across a breadth of applications.
As part of a building renovation project, Profile Carve Panels were incorporated into the hallways and reception area of the graduate dormitories at UMass Lowell. Designers used 3form colors, Rift Oak and Enamel White, to complement University branding. Designers used repeating Profile patterns in two colors to reinforce a cohesive design throughout the space.
At Virginia Tech, Profile Verve Tiles were used in a residence hall to create a colorful feature wall in a shared collaborative space. The bold colors and custom pattern deliver energy and texture, while enhancing the modern aesthetic of the space.
Profile Carve, Ray and Zing Panels were used in the hallways of Conrady Junior High in Chicago to mask outdated walls. Designers incorporated cork bulletin boards between the Panels to provide a flexible and functional design solution. The three Profile patterns connect the hallways and beautifully blend with the school’s new modern industrial aesthetic.
All formats and patterns in the Profile collection are available in 28 finishes ranging from Ultra White and French Vanilla to Aluminum Brushed and Toasted Walnut. Profile is also available in Studio by 3form’s new Felt finish, which adds a rich textural element and helps achieve effective sound diffusion in collaborative spaces and open environments. Additionally, the tile units can be combined with 3form’s Chroma tiles, which, with a color palette of 10,000+ hues, can add bursts and patterns of an accent color. Profile products have a Class A fire rating, durable finish and can be cleaned and maintained with ease.
