Amid apprehensions surrounding safety during the ongoing pandemic, partition products and space division systems provide a means of moderating anxieties within interior spaces. Featuring formable resin panels that afford infinite opportunities to combine color, texture, and light, 3form’s versatile Varia systems showcase an illustrious solution for safely separating spaces with sleek and dynamic designs. “With safety and wellbeing at the forefront of everyone’s minds, 3form’s desk screens and space division systems provide a cleanable and flexible solution for the ongoing needs in the workplace, healthcare, education, and public spaces,” says 3form’s VP of Sales Jen Ruckel. “Whether privacy or transparency is required, our Varia products meet the needs, while also being a material that you can feel good about specifying.” Varia’s versatile and revolutionary resin panels deliver division of space with design impact.
Dynamic Design Possibilities
Combining a layered aesthetic with a textural and translucent allure, Varia’s visual feast of creative treasures unfolds across a comprehensive collection of 250 colors that can be combined with 3form’s diffusions, interlayers, and other effects for custom creations and limitless luminosity. With multiple interlayers encapsulated and embedded between its sheets for dynamic dimension, Varia can carry layer upon layer of colors, particles, and textiles, while the panel’s durability and translucency can be controlled with added finishes.
The diverse design possibilities provided by Varia include visual partitions, formed solutions, wall solutions, and biophilic features that bring the beauty of nature into interior spaces. Varia can be drilled, cut, seamed, and cold bent on-site for contours that take shape as simple sinuous curves or heat formed into more complex forms. Varia panel partition products play out across an array of applications and configurations for division of space—from frameless suspended solutions and floor-to-ceiling frames to modular space-shaping hardware and hanging louvered segments that create visual impact. In addition to endless aesthetic possibilities, Varia’s variety of space division designs also deliver on durability and performance. Half the weight of glass and 40 times more resistant to impact, Varia is easy to disinfect with most common cleaning solvents
Confidential Calm and Comfort
Privacy and ease have emerged as essential elements of concern characterized by current circumstances. As such, freestanding partitions, desktop dividers, and space-delineating solutions that offer the utmost of aesthetic control are especially in demand. Varia’s comprehensive catalogue of customizable components collectively afford areas of confidential calm and comfort. “Creating private space is essential to many environments but it doesn’t have to be an eyesore in your space,” says Ruckel. “Varia can meet many design aesthetics due to the vast color palette, interlayers made with metallic tones, textiles, wire, and natural materials.”
The ability to adjust opacity ensures the correct amount of visual privacy and light transmission is achieved. “Varia combines style and function by allowing you to control light, opacity, and privacy with our color, pattern, diffusion, and finish options,” says Azar McMaster, 3form’s SVP of Product Management. “Not only do these contribute to different aesthetics, they can also be adjusted to control light transmission, how much privacy to offer depending on the function of the application, and other important considerations for the user of the space.” With space-defining systems emerging as a go-to solution for accommodating evolving safety standards in interior spaces, Varia’s versatility vouches for the importance of open-ended and uncompromising design.
