Expanded LLumar® iLLusions™ Decorative Window Film Debuts at AIA Convention

June 26, 2014 - USA

Compared to etched glass, LLumar® iLLusions™ can more affordably create a mood, address a functional concern, and define a space.

Kingsport, TN – June 26, 2014 –Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN) is excited to unveil its expanded LLumar® iLLusions™ decorative window film line at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention in Chicago on June 26-28.

At a fraction of the cost of etched glass, LLumar iLLusions can be used to create a mood, address a functional concern, or define a space. This decorative window film is available in a broad selection of styles, ranging from bold hues and opaques to patterns, textures, gradients, frosts, and specialty designs. LLumar iLLusions is durable but removable, so it can change as the design requirements of commercial building professionals evolve.

“LLumar iLLusions decorative window films enhance existing buildings and infuse new projects with creativity and imagination,” says Monica Shripka, PE, LEED AP, Architectural Segment Market Development Manager, Eastman Chemical Company. “This expanded decorative window film line will provide interior designers, architects, and commercial building owners with an attractive and cost-effective solution for renovation and tenant build-out projects.”

LLumar iLLusions is ideal for lobby areas, partition walls, stairways, retail storefronts, conference rooms, hotel spaces, storage and library areas, bathrooms, and private offices. The decorative window film offers vibrant pops of color, varying levels of translucency, customized graphics and cutouts, and enhanced aesthetics.

It also addresses several challenges faced by commercial building professionals. Decorative window film can be used to mask light, boost visual interest in retail and gathering spaces, disguise clutter and hide unattractive areas, reduce the “fishbowl effect,” add privacy without eliminating light and views completely, cost-effectively brand a space for a new tenant, and economically provide upgrades for existing tenants.

In addition to its expanded LLumar  iLLusions decorative film line, Eastman also offers a full range of window film solutions that bring solar control, energy savings, and safety and security to commercial buildings. LLumar window films are durable, virtually maintenance-free, and designed to last. The films are professionally installed by a national dealer network and backed by a factory warranty.

To learn more about LLumar iLLusions and other LLumar window film solutions, visit Booth No. 2012 at the AIA National Convention in Chicago on June 26-28 or visit www.llumar.com/decorative-film to see how the films could look by using the film viewer tool.
