This impressive printed glass feature wall is a magnificent entrance statement to the Atrium Restaurant within the Crown Casino complex, Perth. At 32sqm, the printed glass wall rises above the main dining area commanding a vibrant, colourful presence.
The feature wall was originally installed with an adhesive vinyl backed design, and glue-fixed to the wall. At almost 4m tall, the glass panels are large and the weight is significant. With the only fixing to the wall behind coming from the glue on the paper thin vinyl graphic, the weight had caused the glass to begin peeling away, creating air bubbles and more importantly a serious safety issue with the possibility that the glass could completely fall away from the wall.
Cooling Brothers Glass were contracted by Frontline Interiors to re-print the original artworks on glass using our ImagInk ceramic printing process. The original design files were re-printed to match the existing colours perfectly, a process handled in-house by our Graphic Design Team. Files were provided in high resolution photoshop format, ensuring no detail was lost in moving to a different printed medium.
Because the ceramic inks are printed directly onto the surface of the glass and then toughened, the inks fuse permanently into the glass creating a permanent surface that can be adhered to using a wide variety of silicones and structural tapes. In the case of the Atrium, the glass was glue fixed back to the existing wall, this time with patrons safe in the knowledge that the print may come unstuck causing the glass to fall off!
If you are down at the Atrium for the famous all-you-can-eat buffet lunch, you’ll see the feature wall as soon as you walk in – it’s pretty hard to miss!
