London Build Expo… Chicks with Bricks!

This year’s London Build Expo was a really enjoyable experience for the Sphere8 team – we were shortlisted for two awards at the London Construction Awards and had an amazing evening with over 200 industry specialists; we then headed along to Day Two of the London Build Expo and made a huge number of great new contacts; but perhaps most exciting was our introduction to Chicks with Bricks at London Build’s “Women in Construction” Morning Tea – a really inspirational morning…

Given one of our DesignSphere projects has just been nominated for Small Commercial Project of the Year, we thought this was the perfect time to shine the light on our most innovative of flooring systems!

Turning Waste into Gold…

Ever since we were introduced to Goldfinger Factory through their collaboration with Tom Dixon, we have been in awe of the work they do as part of the local community – turning waste materials and wasted talent into, well, gold! Whether that takes the form of upcycled furniture or pieces for their new Trellick range designed by Tom himself. Either way their work is hugely deserving of recognition and we were thrilled when we worked out a way we could collaborate with them! Before we’re ready to reveal what we’re working on though, we thought it was right to take a good look at all they’ve already achieved…

Carnival Spirit! Colourful resin floors at Sphere8…

Here in Ladbroke Grove this weekend can only mean one thing – CARNIVAL! The annual Notting Hill Carnival parades straight past our site here and every year we are blown away by the excitement, energy and enthusiasm that surrounds the event. The other thing that immediately comes to mind (along with food, music and dancing!) is the riotous display of colour that Carnival inspires. So as a tribute to our lively neighbours this weekend, we thought we’d look at our most colourful project to date…

Terrazzo! From goat's milk to resin...

This week we embarked on the rebranding of our BrecciaSphere range – refining our colour choices and adding them to our Sphere8 flooring colour guide. Fortunately we have long used our range of terrazzo-effect resin floors, but with demand steadily increasing we thought it was time to give this collection a little extra attention!
