This wood product manufacturer/marketer leveraged DIRTT’s creative and construction flexibility to incorporate innovative design elements into their new location – using their own materials. Sawdust and wood chips half-fill a double-glazed wall in a unique corporate branding feature. Graphics of forest skylines and cross-cut timber trunks add visual appeal to glass surfaces and offer privacy without closing in work spaces. Micro-perforated tiles surround imbedded monitors to provide eye-pleasing acoustic management in meeting rooms. The end result is a bright, exciting space that reflects the company’s mission, vision and creativity.
