Last November, I wrote a post about a new movie theater concept that had just opened in Tampa. I fell for the interior design at first and as beautiful as they are, it's the concept of the theater that keeps me coming back. Cinebistro is a movie theater for adults. It has a full bar, a full menu and white linen table service. I won't see a movie anywhere else.
It's a great idea and the interiors of the place really set the tone. The theater in Tampa is a picture of contemporary eclecticism and every time I go back I find more cool stuff to notice and admire. Getting any information about who designed it and who supplied all the finishes in the lobby particularly has eluded me until now.
All of that changed when I heard from a company called Veritas™ Architectural Solutions this week and Veritas™ makes resin architectural panels and they happen to be the hallmark of the movie theater lobby I'm so enamored with. It's a small world.
Veritas™ architectural panels, called ResinArt™, come in a huge variety of stock sizes, patterns and colors. What makes them really unique is that they have a custom program and you can design your own panels on their website. They've made the process wonderfully simple and you can order a sample of your original design right there.
The panels come in six thicknesses, 1/16", 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". And their end uses seem to be limited only by the designers who specify them.
The images I'm showing here are the lobby of my beloved Cinebistro in Tampa, but I can see these Veritas™ ResinArt™ panels used as shower doors, room dividers, ceiling panels, interior windows, privacy screens... the mind reels. Check out Veritas™ ResinArt™ architectural panels on their website and be sure to look through their photo gallery.
