Squire & Partners celebrate raw materials at The Department Store Studios
Squire & Partners has launched The Department Store Studios, a new local workspace next door to their award-winning offices in Brixton.
CDUK has launched a new Washpod to their Primo range, which can be added to public spaces where additional or pop-up hand wash stations are required.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance, more than ever, of hygiene within our public spaces – not only in the short-term to reduce transmission, but also in the long-term, as our attitudes towards hygiene and cleanliness change. Responding to these demands, CDUK wanted to produce a product that supports customers as they are challenged to ensure public spaces are well equipped with the infrastructure needed to provide the very highest standards of hygiene.
Working with designer Neil Wilson and fabrication partners to design and manufacture the product, CDUK has created an ideal solution for public spaces where additional or pop-up hand wash stations are required.
The Primo Specialist Washpod is an elegant, free standing wash station made from Corian® Solid Surface with a seamless finish. The non-porous Corian® is easy to clean with minimum maintenance, impenetrable to bacteria and fungi and, with no need for grout, the station is perfect for demanding high-traffic environments. The Washpod can be integrated into public spaces within airports, train stations, the workplace, hospitality venues, retail, and educations environments, or as a modular solution in commercial washrooms for refurbishment projects or to provide additional handwashing facilities.
‘At CDUK we push the boundaries of materiality by providing products which respond directly to the needs of our customers and demands of the market,’ comments Andy Noble, Division-al Managing Director, CDUK. ‘Adapting and innovating is an integral part of how we work and continue to deliver imaginative solutions while supporting our customers through a journey, helping them to unlock their full potential through expert advice and technical knowledge.’
Primo by CDUK is a design-led range of premium thermoformed vanity basins and wash troughs made from Corian® Solid Surface. First launched in 2019, the Primo range includes basins, wash troughs, with the Washpod being the latest addition to the Primo Specialist range.
Like other Primo Specialist Wash Basins and Wash Troughs, the Primo Specialist Washpod is specially design to work perfectly with the advanced technology of the Dyson Airblade™ Wash+Dry tap, together creating an optimum all-in-one solution to modern washroom design and delivering a superior combination of functionality, design, and crucial hygiene control.
With over 40 years-experience providing solid surfaces materials and complementary products, CDUK understands the marketplace and constantly seeks to deliver the most innovative, relevant and practical ideas and products to customers to help them achieve their design ambitions.
