O Esplendor by Beatriz Milhazes

Vinyline have worked with Beatriz Milhazes on many of her projects in Manchester, Paris, LA and even Brazil. We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work with her on her most recent project at Turner Contemporary in Margate, UK. Vinyline created and installed the stunning window graphic, using mixed-media vinyl such as translucent, transparent and frosted, giving a spectacular colourful effect that cascades across the gallery.
 
As you can see in the time-lapse, our highly skilled installation team applied the colourful jigsaw puzzle, consisting of over 500 individual pieces, which they managed to complete in 4 days with a scissor lift.
 
The art project ‘O Esplendor’ combines natural motifs from the landscape in Rio with the breath-taking view from Turner Contemporary Sunley Gallery window, seaminglessly blending it with her home horizon, the vast ocean and the limitless sky.

Northstar

Vinyline supplied and installed a multitude of different signage products to create this amazing eye-catching building front. The bespoke sign is made front built-up steel illuminated letters with 250mm returns. We used a mixture of solid range and transparent vinyl’s to add to the windows and to the building to create the colourful effect.

SO ON BRAND

Vinyline played a pivotal role in enhancing the visual appeal of Selfridges in Birmingham through their expert provision and installation of window display graphics. This collaboration was part of Selfridges’ dynamic ‘SO ON BRAND’ campaign, where the aim was not only to capture attention but also to reinforce brand identity through visually striking elements.

Vinyline precisely crafted and applied vinyl graphics at the heart of this transformation. These graphics served as a powerful medium to communicate the essence of the campaign, utilizing a combination of vibrant colors, captivating designs, and strategic placement to create an eye-catching spectacle for passersby. The use of vinyl graphics allowed for a versatile and visually impactful presentation. Thus contributing to an immersive and memorable retail experience.

The retail window displays, expertly curated and executed by Vinyline, became a canvas for the brand narrative. We thoughtfully chose each element to resonate with the campaign’s theme. Showcasing products in a way that not only enticed customers but also seamlessly integrated with the overarching brand identity of Selfridges. The result was a harmonious blend of aesthetics and marketing, where the window displays served as a compelling storytelling platform for the brand.

In the competitive retail landscape, creating an unforgettable impression is crucial, and Vinyline’s contribution went beyond mere graphics installation. Their expertise in understanding the nuances of communication allowed them to align the window displays with Selfridges’ vision, fostering a cohesive and impactful brand presentation. The successful execution of this project underscored Vinyline’s proficiency in transforming retail spaces into visually dynamic environments, making a lasting impression on customers and reinforcing brand loyalty.

Ruskin Fitness Club & Spa – Wellness looks good on you

Vinyline have worked with Ruskin Drive for several years. We are proud and honoured to be a part of their new venture – Ruskin Spa.

The team worked with Ruskin to help them achieve their vision of relaxation and tranquillity at their brand-new facilities in St. Helens.

Vinyline supplied and installed bespoke signage to the interior and exterior – including metallic text & signage, wall graphics, illuminated text, projecting signs and free-standing event signs.

Kings Cross

When there’s construction work to be done, site hoarding graphics provides a helpful screen to block out the mess until the grand unveiling. But we understand that standard builder’s panelling is unsightly and pretty uninspiring. Vinyline have worked with Sutton Young on the King’s Cross site in London for 10 years, to upgrade their boring grey site hoardings into bright, vibrant and inspiring artworks.

Back in 2010 Vinyline was called up on to carry out the first site visit and devised a leafy concept to help disguise the ongoing building works. By the end of 2020 Vinyline had installed over 2,000 metres of hoarding graphics.

The temporary hoardings that surround the construction site in and around King’s Cross provided the perfect canvas to engage with passers-by. Be it up-scaled pages from a book – or site huts camouflaged as giant tool boxes, or oversized envelopes, road signs, girders and columns, they literally speak volumes.

Large stretches of hoarding boards are created by combining a quantity of Dibond panels, every one of which will have been digitally printed with UV resistant ink (Dibond is an aluminium composite which is both rigid and weatherproof). Each individual sheet measures 2440mm x 1220mm and has a slice of the artwork printed on it. Once printed they were delivered to site where they were fitted together like a large jigsaw created the overall finished impacting graphic display.

Japan House Exhibition, LA – Symbosis | Living Island

Vinyline has recently supplied stunning mixed-media vinyl for JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles for the Exhibition – Symbiosis | Living Island. Our job was to replicate the actual art installation “Yellow Flower Dream” on Inujima (“Dog Island”) in Japan by the Brazilian artist, Beatriz Mihazes. Three replica panels were made to feature in the LA spring exhibition. We used mixed-media vinyl such as translucent, transparent & frosted, giving a spectacular colourful effect.

About the Exhibition

In biology, the word “symbiosis” refers to two organisms living together, each strengthened by a close association. Socially, the term is used for a mutually beneficial relationship between people or groups. The exhibition Symbiosis: Living Island, on view at JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles from April 15 to July 5, 2023, explores the groundbreaking Inujima “Art House Project,” designed to revitalize Inujima, a depopulated Japanese island, by integrating contemporary art. The project has created a unique symbiosis between art, architecture, community, and ecology that will nurture and sustain the island for many years to come.

Inujima (“Dog Island”) is located in Japan’s Seto Inland Sea, part of the city of Okayama. Once a centre of copper refining and stone quarrying, the tiny island—it can be walked around in an hour—is now home to just twenty-five households, with more than half of the inhabitants over seventy years of age. In 2008, the island became one of the locations of the Benesse Art Site Naoshima —activities conducted by Benesse Holdings, Inc. and Fukutake Foundation in the Inland Sea, and was transformed through art. Yuko Hasegawa, director of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, was hired as the artistic director of Inujima’s “Art House Project,” and conceived of an environment where art, community, and ecology are harmoniously intertwined.

Selfridges – Walk Walk Walk

Back in 2003 – Vinyline produced and installed the 18m-high black silhouette figures crowding across Selfridges Exchange Square windows working with Service Graphics. International artist Julian Opie was drafted by Selfridges to make the store stand out, and that is exactly what he did with his artwork Walk, Walk, Walk.

Not only do myraid 18m-high figures traverse the whole frontage of the store, including the Marks & Spencer bit, but they’re to be found in the store itself (although not on quite the same scale) and even in the car park on lightboxes.

James Bidwell, Selfridges Marketing Director, commented: ‘Selfridges is all about creating places to experience the new – through cultural relationships, art and design, as much as fashion’.

Each glass panel on the façade was numbered and an application ‘map’ produced. The map was used to make sure every piece was in exactly the right place and of course all this was carried out at night. Selfridges wasn’t about to lose any trading time during the three-week installation period.

Apart from having to satisfy stringent health and safety and fire regulations – 3M’s vinyl proved more than capable in this area – the project went fairly easily and smoothly.
