The d line Sign System
The d line signage systems are developed with flexibility in mind – flexibility to accommodate the ever-changing environments in which they serve as direction and information posts. The sign range is a result of experimenting with surfaces.
The steel was brushed or glass bead blasted – a new method leaving the surface with a matt appearance contrasting the brushed shiny steel.
In addition, acrylic material was introduced after undergoing a meticulous process of colour selection. The result was a bright green acrylic – a fresh addition that complimented the steel – a colour and material combination which became so popular that it was also integrated in the bathroom series. Today, the green acrylic colour is synonymous with the d line universe.
"What makes d line special compared to other products is the relationship between a broad range of products that are visually related.
You have a high design and anonymity yet d line somehow manages to retain its own identity”
