Button-fix fastenings from Surface Matter have created a wall of interchangeable materials and a reconfigurable work hub in its London Studio.
The Surface Matter studio displays new sample materials added and showcased every day on a large, Mondrian style, material feature wall. It was of significant importance that the materials used to decorate the feature wall could be easily replaced, rearranged and taken down for closer inspection.
Four Button-fix fastenings were used per panel, with more than 200 Type 1 and 2 Fixes used throughout the studio. Jane Campbell, Marketing Director at Surface Matter said Button-fix “made it easy to unclip and remove, replace or rearrange the panels, Button-fix fastening system is ideal for our wall which is consistently updated when we’re introduced to new materials.”
Button-fix fastenings can be used in parallel, 90 degree connections, horizontal and vertical applications, Type 1 Fix fastenings are ideal for screw fixing parallel panels, where proven strength and invisibility is paramount. Type 2 Fixes connect 90 degree panels are ideal for concealing pipework or cabling as the Fix requires no clearance around the panel for removal for access to the services.
The Fix can be surface-mounted on the panel. When no gap is required behind the panel, button-fix gives the option of a rebated mounting. The large focus wall in the Surface Matter studio was created using this method, as well as using button-fix fastenings to create a reconfigurable work hub.
The reconfigurable workspace allows for the desks to be rearranged depending on the workplace requirements and then safely secured.
Jane Campbell explains that it creates a low cost, easy to arrange work space with invisible fastenings, allowing the Surface Matter workspace to be easily adapted.
Julie Freedman, Head of Sales and Marketing at Button-fix said, “Panelling applications, such as the feature wall at Surface Matter, are a great demonstration of the original design ideas that can be achieved through the use of invisible, secure fastening systems. Extremely versatile and capable of accurately aligning panels, Button-fix ensures that creative designs can become a reality.”
