Ricky Richards has forged a partnership with Belgium company Lampe Textiles that will innovative glass window treatment Squid distributed to the local market.

Squid is a self-adhesive textile designed to create window and glass decoration for both commercial and domestic interior projects.

Developed and produced by Lampe Textiles in Belgium, Squid comprises a self-adhesive ‘curtain’ that still allows a building’s occupants to see out during the day while blocking others from being able to look in. This privacy aspect has led to Squid becoming a high-quality alternative to standard films for glass walls in office and commercial interiors.

“Squid gives you privacy, sun protection and delivers a lower temperature inside your workspace or home. Squid textiles can be digitally printed to showcase unique artwork or applied as a natural fabric, with both effects offering one-way vision for privacy during the day. Squid can be used on any window shape. The self-adhesive textile is both moisture and heat resistant, and very easy to tailor to exact specifications. Squid is available in six modern colours that have been chosen carefully to complement existing décor.Other benefits of the textile are that it is PVC free, fire retardant M1/B1, and anti-bacterial.”

Ricky Richards General Manager Kathryn Polgar commented: “We have never seen anything like Squid before. It fills a gap in the windows market and presents us with so many opportunities for our printing customers in wide format print media. Forming a solid partnership with the Belgium company made sense for Ricky Richards’ interest in both the window coverings and the printing markets. We met the Squid team in Germany at FESPA 2017 and we were chosen to become their exclusive distributor in Australia.”
