Squid is a patented self-adhesive transparent textile for the decoration of windows and other glass surfaces. It was developed for the interior design market when the owner of mother company Lampe Textiles was looking for a semi-permanent privacy solution for his son’s boarding room at university.
The woven textile proved to be functionally luxurious and quickly caught the attention of renowned interior designers like Axel Vervoordt. It is currently used by designers and architects all over the world in numerous applications as a high-end alternative for frosted window film or complementing other window decorations.
It is available in 5 colours and comes in rolls of 1,3m x 50m. The aesthetic technicality pushed the solution to success, which led to the inevitable personalisation route. Johan Bonner, director at Squid, elaborates: “We came across some people who asked if they could tailor it with a favourite pattern or image. That’s how we ended up testing Squid for print.
"As it turns out, it’s perfectly printable and delivers a double-sided effect after printing. When printed, it becomes an interior one-way vision alternative.”
