Following the success of the 2004 Sky+ Designer Collection, five of the world’s most sought-after designers decided to come together to present a new 2005 range.
The collection, which numbered eight boxes in total, went on sale in John Lewis for £99 per box. UK designer Wayne Hemingway designed the first four boxes, which celebrated the top-scoring Premiership clubs of all time—Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea. The remaining four boxes were designed by accessories designer Lulu Guinness, luxury wallpaper designers Cole & Son, fabric and wallpaper specialists Osborne & Little, and wallpaper and paint experts Farrow & Ball.
The end result was a spectacular and eclectic range which celebrated the best in design and technology.
As one of the few companies using a printing process called water transfer printing, we were chosen to decorate each box. Water transfer treatment works by using a water-soluble PVA film to transfer ink to the product.
Firstly, the Sky+ boxes were painted with a base colour, then we applied a printed film to the boxes using the water printing, before finally applying a satin topcoat lacquer to give a hard-wearing and durable finish.
James Grint, MD of Peerless, said “We are very pleased to have been contracted to deliver the limited edition Sky+ designer range. It is the first time we have combined two technologies on one product and we are very satisfied with the results. Grey boxes are all around us in the home, in business, and in other places. The process we use can transform the dullest of objects and it is ideal for matching to furniture and fittings around the home. Plus, the ability to cope with individual items means everyone can enjoy a designer moment.”
