Gladstone Hotel

A Giant Kaleidoscope

Project Overview:
INPS Graphics and 3M Canada partnered with Toronto’s Safoura Zahedi on a project called ‘CONNECT”, which is part of the Gladstone Hotel’s yearly immersive group exhibition, Come Up to My Room.

3M Canada provided the Dichroic Film, and INPS installed the film in this Toronto boutique art hotel. Safoura also required signage explaining her exhibit which explored geometry and three-dimensional spatial experiences. 

There were tight timelines and a need for removability. INPS easily overcame both. Safoura required an installation in a two week time frame, and INPS met this requirement. INPS Printed the signage on a removable vinyl material to make it easy to remove when the exhibit was completed. 

Our 3M Preferred GTA installer arrived on site and installed the 3M Dichroic Film on all 12 windows of the historic hotel. The 3M Dichroic Film changes colour when viewed from different angles and the transmitted colours are different from the reflective colours. The removable vinyl sign was applied at the same time.
