The Forum Southend-on-Sea is a joint project between the University of Essex and South Essex College. The state of the art building contains a public and academic library, art gallery and cutting edge teaching facilities.
The Forum had very specific requirements. Their blinds needed to be effective at reducing glare which distracts teacher, students and causes havoc to those using the extensive library facilities. The Forum also had a high calibre design ethic which is reflected both inside and out, this care for the aesthetic needed to extent to the buildings window blinds.
Considering the requirements of The Forum the best candidate for the job was clearly the Kampus Blind® produced by CBS Blinds at our HQ in North West England. The Kampus Blind® combines design elements such as sleek metal brackets and fusion welded fabrics in an uninvasive package. The Kampus Blind® was selected alongside a charcoal mesh fabric from our standard range of colours which matched the buildings charcoal/grey design elements. Kampus Blinds® were installed by Interlace Ltd, as a sub-contractor to Wates.
Our mesh fabric has reduced glare allowing learners and teachers to concentrate on what this innovative building was designed to do, excel in educating the local population and host events which draw big names in the worlds of science, technology, learning and art. The Kampus Blind® delivered an effective and beautiful solution for a building which is both a utility and piece of art.
The Kampus Blind® is available now from CBS Blinds.
