    BOUNCE! BY FLORENCE BLANCHARD, PRODUCED BY UNIPLAY

    ““I always thought this park could do with a bit of colour, the design needed to be bold and colourful to contrast with the concrete and the steel. The shapes follow the architectural layout and bounce from one element to another. I am very pleased with the result and hope it will bring a bit of distraction to Sheffielders as we are going through a historical difficult time.””

    – Florence Blanchard

    In recent weeks Uniplay have helped to bring to life a landmark project, designed by International artist Florence Blanchard, transforming a dormant public space in central Sheffield into a unique creative space.

    Sheffield-based, French born artist Florence Blanchard is known internationally for her work transforming city spaces with her signature style of flowing, amorphous shapes in bright colours. Working in partnership with thermoplastic specialist Uniplay, Florence has transformed an area 1000 sqm into a vibrant, playful focal point for the Cultural Industries Quarter.

    The project was commissioned through City of Ideas, a placemaking programme led by Site Gallery and a consortia of Sheffield arts organisations based in the city’s Cultural Industries Quarter. Site Gallery is one of Yorkshire’s leading international contemporary art spaces.

    “The impact of Florence’s work is remarkable. It has added a whole new dimension to the public realm around Site Gallery and is a wonderful addition to a series of public artworks we have commissioned in the area over the past couple of years. Florence has recognised the untapped potential of the square and created an environment which celebrates the creativity of the cultural industries quarter”

    Judith Harry, Executive Director of Site Gallery

    Uniplay utilised high durability, anti-slip surface covering Roll Plast that was hand applied by our installation experts, and preformed thermoplastic, to re-create Florence’s artwork and transform this city space into an area of public art. Bespoke colours were commissioned and developed in Germany to meet Florence’s vision and supplied by Preformed Markings, a member of the Geveko Markings Group.

    The whole area now requires minimal maintenance and the anti-slip and high durability nature of the products used means the public art will be available for the City of Sheffield and it’s visitors to enjoy for many years to come.

     “This artwork is a great addition to the CIQ. We encourage people to come down to Brown Street and view it.

    Richard Eyre, City Centre Manager, Sheffield City Council
