New Partition, Please

That’s it – I’ve had it up to here with these ugly office partitions. It’s not like I’m some kind of extreme interior design snob. If you saw these things I’m sure you’d feel the same, especially if you were surrounded by them day in and day out. They’re ostensibly mustard coloured, which I could probably get behind if it wasn’t for the fact that they’re made of some kind of weird textured plastic smeared with two decades worth of grime that won’t budge, no matter how many wipe-downs it gets.

They came with the place and sort of just got left in the mix, but we’ve been here a good six months now – there’s really no excuse left on the table. We’re a real estate consultancy, for crying out loud! Every client that comes in here is going to walk away with impression that we specialise in badly finished buildings, and that won’t do at all. It’s time to get some up-to-the-minute glass partitions installed.

It’s just a matter of bringing the look into line with the vibe of our office. Decorative glass designs, Melbourne readers, do not simply appear fully formed. Someone needs to make a call on whether we go with art deco-style frosting, or some kind of boldly coloured opaque concept. Well, I guess anything’s better than what we have now, so it shouldn’t be too much of a big decision.

The good news is, it doesn’t need to be sandblasted or etched or whatever. According to Harry in HR, there are now these commercial tinting film suppliers. Melbourne has a few, apparently. Basically, they print up whatever you want  – whether it be signage or frosting or a UV-protective coating – onto this adhesive film that goes on top of your glass. Sorted!

I’m on a roll with this idea, actually. I should probably take responsibility for spearheading the whole mission so I can stop complaining.
