Splinter Scenery Pods with Thorndown Wood Paints

During the pandemic and lockdowns, many businesses have not been able to carry out the work they would normally and many have had to innovate and re-invent themselves to see them through.

One such company is Splinter Scenery who normally design and construct for the theatre industry. They are responsible for some amazing sets including Blythe Spirit which we were lucky enough to see in Bath Theatre and were absolutely blown away by!

They collaborated with Define Architects to create and build a pretty impressive set of pods to shelter bar-goers in.

The pods aren’t just your everyday outside shelters that you’d find in a pub garden, but are packed with design features from cladding running in vertical and diagonal lines to support beams with the most elegant of joints.

The exteriors have all been painted with Thorndown Wood Paint in RAL 7012 Basalt Grey and UV Clear with an anti-graffiti coat on top.

Internally the attention to design and build continues at its stunningly high level, with bench seating, table and shelving making the best of the space and creating a beautiful home environment that one could easily move into!

The interior was also painted in Thorndown UV Clear throughout to protect the wood from the external elements and also to make it easier to clean; essential in a busy bar environment.

Understandably the client was delighted with the finished result and we’re sure the customers will be very happy in these pods for many years.
