  • Create a sculptural accent to your space by thermo-forming your chosen DI-NOC architectural finish over a 3-dimensional surface to create a unique accent piece for a wall. Perfect for a lobby or reception area!
  • Improve office navigation by applying decorative wall panels with contrasting 3M™ DI-NOC™ architectural finishes to the facings of stairs, doors or floor trim. This improves décor, and makes traffic zones more noticeable.
  • To create a dynamic conference room space, cover glass windows with 3M dusted or frosted film and use as a projection surface. Passers-by will be intrigued by the shifting play of the light.
  • A simple way to create a unique conference table: Purchase an ordinary glass table, and make it extraordinary by applying patterned Fasara glass finishes film to the bottom surface.
  • Light the walkway. Several inches above the baseboard of a dim hallway or corridor, add a series of singular light fixtures utilizing 3M™ Custom Formed Reflectors. Space them evenly, and allow the light pools overlap, to form an energy-efficient path of light that brightens a dimly light walkway.
  • Mix and match lighting solutions. Utilize a 3M™ Sunlight Delivery System to create the overall atmosphere in an office area. For personal workspaces, use task lighting designed with 3M™ Custom Formed Reflectors.
  • While a bright workspace promotes productivity and enhances mood, glare can be a problem. To reduce glare, use multiple, low-wattage lighting sources rather than fewer, brighter fixtures, and use a 3M™ Sunlight Delivery System to create natural, ambient light during the day.
