Design decking with champagne flavour
UPM ProFi has enjoyed a long relationship with the festival since 2008, when colourful flooring elements built of composite decking boards were used for the festival restaurant. In 2013, co-operation continued with a champagne bar makeover. “Three kilometres of UPM ProFi products are being used at the bar floor, walls and desk. ProFi components give a lot of possibilities and variation of how to use the material, and the rich colour selection of the boards suits the patterned design perfectly,” says Juhana Heikonen, the architect behind the champagne bar design.
The Champagne bar & lounge covers approximately 190 square metres. UPM ProFi Deck is the most visible element used on bar surfaces. The floor is based on the shape of triangle and consists of Snow Blue and Night Sky Black decking boards. 40-metre long bar is also coated with composite decking boards. Even the walls are cladded with UPM ProFi Facade.
“The original champagne bar was only 50 m2, but previous years champagne demand exceeded all expectations so we decided to extend the bar area,” Heikonen explains. He is very pleased with the bar appearances. “We managed to establish yet another unique space with UPM ProFi material at Flow Festival.”
