Autex has transformed a roof terrace in London into a showroom displaying its latest acoustic panels and products.

Designed in collaboration with TP Bennett director, Michelle Wilkie and senior interior designer Ben Boxshall, Autex’s Clerkenwell showroom is intended to function like a gallery, where products can be exchanged on a regular basis. It is divided into four zones and can cater for both one-on-one conversations and larger group events.

Dispersed throughout the spaces are the manufacturer’s latest interior wall and ceiling acoustics products, which showcase ways designers can use them to reduce noise in the workplace.

The brief was challenging, the artwork had to communicate the intrinsic beauty of James Cropper’s bespoke papers, be delivered at a huge scale – the full length of an articulated truck – and to an unprecedented quality.

The first of these is a range of wash-off film labeling solutions that make it easier, during the caustic washing process that is central to the recycling of PET, to separate polypropylene labels from clean PET flake. The key to this concept is UPM Raflatac’s RW85C wash-off adhesive. The clear, white, or metallized film label stocks score additional sustainability points because their release liners are made from 90 percent post-consumer recycled content. According to UPM Raflatac, the labels have been recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) as exceeding APR’s strict standards for recyclable label products.

For its ingenuity, this “flattened” 750-cL PET bottle, which not only facilitates the delivery of wine packages, but also features a number of notable sustainability improvements over round glass bottles, was recognized by Dow as a Diamond finalist in its 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation.
