Seattle’s Best Chadbourne + Doss Architects solution:

Chroma® Cranberry 3form value:

Establish a brand identity using with an iconic architectural feature Seattle’s Best coffee wanted to reinvent their brand - employing fresh thinking to create a new image. Located in a busy Walmart, designers sought to find a way to create an iconic brand expression with simple, bold lines and color. Chroma quickly emerged as a client favorite. “The tactile component is important – Chroma is great to touch and feel,” said Daren Doss of Chadbourne + Doss Architects.

The Chroma acts as part of the signage and is also an architectural piece. Signage is usually applied to a space in a two-dimensional fashion, but Doss took it to the next dimension. “We wanted to envelop the customer in the brand,” he said. “In this design, 3form is a continuous spatial element – the Chroma works as an organizational element and draws the customer in, providing a theater of experience for the customer and the barista.” The best part of Seattle’s Best? The final installation was identical to the rendering – a perfect case of 3form helping to make a designer’s vision become reality.



“The goal is to break out of the box and do something different — to efficiently express the brand identity through architecture.” – Daren Doss, Chadbourne + Doss Architects

Taco Bell YUM! Brands Express | Architecture & Engineering solution:

Chroma® Mai Tai x2 + Marigold + Ivory 3form value:

The boldest, best look with lit elements and brand colors Taco Bell, in non-traditional development, needed to make a simple, bold statement with real impact. Unlike free-standing restaurants that customers have to travel to for comparison shopping, food court restaurants must compete side-by-side with other food options. This head-tohead battle for the hungry requires a clean, eye-catching approach. Taco Bell Express made use of a limited number of major elements in the design, but made sure those elements were showstopping head-turners that could draw in a customer in an instant.

“3form has a great-looking product that meets our strictest landlord criteria for high design locations,” said Amberlee Sales, designer for YUM! Express. “It provides a solid punch, meets the branding requirements of Taco Bell, and the luminosity helps achieve the visibility required in the mall environment.”



“A mall setting is highly competitive. Customers don’t have to drive from place to place; they can just turn their head to make a decision. So you really need something to turn their head in your direction.” – Amberlee Sales, YUM! Brands Express | Architecture & Engineering

Hot Spud Martinkovic Milford Architects solution:

Wovin Wall | C3 colors, Chill Polyresin, White Oak 3form value:

Ready to Go: bang-for-the-buck, eye-catching, easy to install Hot Spud specializes in gourmet baked “jacket” potatoes. This unique establishment needed a design approach that reflected the type of food served, and provided an upscale feel to complement the natural, organic menu items. Martinkovic Milford Architects saw the potential for what Wovin Wall would bring to the project. “Wovin Wall is customizable to a space, so it’s great for expanding to additional locations while maintaining a theme,” project manager Chris Williams stated. “It has a richness and three-dimensionality you don’t get with basic laminates and its built-in, architectural nature creates a more striking effect than simply hanging artwork.” The Wovin Wall helped achieve the branding and design continuity throughout the space – providing vibrant, fresh, whimsical C3 colors inspired by the food itself (crisp baked skins and a colorful assortment of toppings) and shapes reminiscent of potatoes.

“The Wovin Wall was very appealing to the designers and the client because it required no special skilled workers to install.” – Chris Williams, Martinkovic Milford Architects

Sustainably responsible materials with long-lasting durability Burger Lounge offers a more upscale dining experience than the traditional hamburger joint. With healthy, fresh menu items, the establishment strives to provide an atmosphere that is a step up from the ordinary. Designers were challenged with creating a fresh, unique experience for

Burger King Innerworks solution:

Ready to Go Chroma® Lightboxes 3form value:

A unique design that provides mass appeal In an effort to create brand consistency, many large restaurant chains strive for conformity of design among their various franchisees. However, in some cases, a franchisee may have the opportunity to expand upon the corporate standards. This was the case of Burger King #6446 in Columbus, GA, where the owner and design firm wanted to increase the styling while remaining true to the brand. QSR restaurants such as Burger King take an enormous amount of abuse. The architectural materials need to be durable while maintaining strong

aesthetics and being scalable to many locations. The design paradigm must remain fresh and relevant to the younger, tech-savvy clientele while being balanced against the relatively short five-to-seven year life cycle of QSR designs. Innerworks used backlit Chroma with CNC cut shapes on the front side to create subtle branding. The designers were also able to reinforce the brand by using flame shape cut Chroma panels inset into partition walls that separate the customer service and dining areas. “3form offers a great product to be able to add a really nice upscale punch,” said John Lay, of Innerworks. “We employ design concepts that we feel give our clients the most flexibility while casting the largest net for customer appeal.” With 3form, you really can have it your way.
