Armourcoat create the perfect backdrop for showcasing cutting-edge commercial interior design

  • 21 Apr 2023

In the heart of Clerkenwell – acknowledged as the global epicentre for design – is the newly-refurbished Brunner showroom. Here, Armourcoat’s sustainable luxury finishes are creating an elegant and sophisticated backdrop to Brunner’s progressive, multifunctional workspace pieces.

The London showroom occupies three floors of a former Victorian warehouse that has previously been a brewery and cinema. The space has enabled the formation of a sophisticated hospitality ambience for receptions and presentations. Vaulted bays provide vignettes of today’s modern, agile workspaces whilst allowing more intimate areas for meetings.

To blend the industrial heritage of the building with its progressive design particularly in the lounge space, Brunner chose Armourcoat.


The specification

Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster, Polished Plaster and Cast Panels combine to enhance the stylish, relaxed environment aesthetically, physically and psychologically. This optimises the health and wellbeing of the occupants.

Armourcoat’s Acoustic Plaster on the curved ceilings allows for the absorption of sound, reducing echo and reverberation. This makes the space calm and relaxing.

To achieve the blend between the Victorian warehouse with a modern yet industrial finish, Armourcoat’s Polished Plaster in Granite finish features for a rough-hewn, coarse texture. Lightly polished flat areas contrast with organic texturing to give a bold natural granite effect.

This features alongside sculptural Cast Panels in Corinth with a concrete look – a design of finely contoured linear scallops and flattened peaks.

‘The leading supplier’

Oliver Shinegold, Brunner Sales Director, comments: “We have partnered with Armourcoat for more than a decade. Its reputation precedes it as being the leading supplier of polished plaster and concrete surface finishes.

“The Armourcoat team’s exceptional and dependable service, extending from the installation process to the final outcome, has consistently met and exceeded our expectations. The company’s commitment to sustainability, durability, and longevity is second to none.

“For our refurbishment, Armourcoat’s skilled artisans were able to craft a prefabricated fluted polished plaster tile that seamlessly integrates with the surrounding space. The result is a dual-aspect textured wall finish, with inset framed images and dramatic shadowing that embellishes the space that we are confident will become a ‘go to’ venue for the commercial design industry.”
