Following its attendance at Papergraphics training and knowledge share events, Digital Space has completed its first successful installation of Digimura 2.1 wallcovering at the Heathrow Marriott Hotel.
Digital Space, a digital print company based in Maidenhead, carried out this print and installation project at the Heathrow Marriot hotel in its new Chef’s table room using Papergraphics’ Digimura 2.1 Façade wallcovering.
Executive chef at the Heathrow Marriott, Paul Quinn, developed the design concept and provided the photography to create an engaging and completely bespoke wallcovering design.
The Digital Space team, Alan and Sasha Edwards, printed the designs on an Epson S80600 as well as installing the wallcovering for the hotel chain. While working with Paul on the design, Alan made the suggestion to pick out the spot colour features in the black and white photography, really lifting the images and overall effect.
Having attended one of Papergraphics’ Wallcovering Application Training courses in September 2018, this was the first of several installations that Digital Space has undertaken. This project in particular presented a few challenges, especially in terms of the awkward spaces the wallcovering needed to cover.
Paul and the Marriott have both expressed how delighted they are with the finished result – a real feast for the eyes that absolutely sets off the Chef’s table experience the hotel offers – guests are able to enjoy a fabulous meal while watching the culinary creations in action through the purpose built wall hatch.
Digital wallcoverings are a new area for Digital Space, which has been operating within the large format signage, exhibition and vehicle wrap industry for over 20 years. Alan and Sasha both said they were excited by the new opportunities that the digitally printed interiors market poses for their business, and have since booked more projects, with several others in the pipeline.
Alan commented, ‘Papergraphics has given us so much support in helping us get to grips with this new area for our business. We are really grateful to Barry Dellow, application training specialist at Papergraphics, for all his advice and encouragement. The training was superb and we are really excited about getting more wallcovering projects in now.’
