Creating spaces that keep people healthy and happy is ongoing, even as architecture and design practice adjusts to the global COVID-19 pandemic. With priorities changing and new needs emerging, adaptability and working with the right materials from the onset is key.
The processes within our industry have changed dramatically since January. The logistics of specification, sampling and installation have been hugely disrupted, coupled with the fact that many architects don’t have access to their material libraries.
Metropolis Magazine is a long-standing associate of Fabricut Contract, the exclusive distributor of FR-One’s fire retardant fabrics in North America. They featured FR-One fabrics as part of a special section in their May 2020 issue highlighting ‘pandemic-proof’ products that are readily available and can “help [interior designers and architects] keep projects moving, clients happy, and end users healthy.”
We’re proud to have been featured by such a prestigious industry resource, because our inherently fire-retardant fabrics provide recognised, dependable performance results when the chips are down, and the world is in upheaval.
We keep architecture and interiors projects moving
Client expectations are demanding at the best of times, and with the COVID-19 pandemic added into the mix, providing results is increasingly difficult for many design professionals around the globe. We see the emphasis shifting towards concrete solutions to our ever-changing challenges, resulting in specification of products that are reliable, available on time and on budget, regardless of the disruption of various supply chains.
We are trusted by architects and interior designers world-wide to support them in their work, no matter what region they’re working in.
Our collections include a huge variety of inherently fire retardant drapery, bedding and upholstery fabrics that meet all fire retardant standards worldwide including IMO meaning they can even be used aboard cruise ships.
FR-One provides designers with high performance fabrics to create aspirational, comfortable, and people-centric spaces for hospitality and entertainment venues; boats and yachts; healthcare facilities; commercial settings; and even residential properties.
Metropolis describes their work in their own words:“For 35 years, Metropolis has been the architecture and design industry’s most compelling storyteller. Metropolis’ s editorial scope spans design at all scales—from the smallest products to city planning. Metropolis has always sought out, and featured, the game changers in the industry, from emerging talent to established individuals and organizations. And each issue contains stories that link design to evolving cultural trends, from big data to the maker movement. Our readers expect us to take them behind the scenes and share innovations, reveal breakthrough processes, and keep them ahead of the curve.”
