Bringing Nature to Life with Koroseal

Capturing stunning landscapes and breath-taking botanicals is only the first step in having them become part of the healing solution for hospitals and healthcare environments.  Once the right images are chosen, they need to be printed in a way that matches their high resolution, attention to detail, and precise color.

That’s where Koroseal comes in.  They are a manufacturer and distributor of interior products, offering a wide range of innovative solutions for the built environment. 

We’ve partnered with Koroseal over the last 4 years because of their ability to print Kurt’s images using state-of-the-art technology, allowing for stunning accuracy when bringing Kurt’s soothing nature images to life.

They are a leading designer, distributor, and producer of wallcoverings, presentation surfaces, wall protection systems, digital printing, and other specialty interior products. Their products produce stunning results that not only look beautiful but also perform to the highest standards, making them perfect for incorporating Kurt’s photographs into wellness environments.

Sondra Carlson, Koroseal’s Distributor Sales Manager for the Great Plains and Pacific Northwest Market Areas, described Kurt’s ability to capture nature images that add a therapeutic and calming element to sterile and sometimes chaotic healthcare environments:

“His ability to capture the outside environment and translate it into that place of what brings people solitude, what brings people happiness, what brings people restfulness . . . ” creates powerful art in healthcare facilities.    

She went on to talk about the varying needs of clients and how KJP’s extensive portfolio along with Kurt’s willingness to shoot new imagery for projects are always “able to create the desired image to match the architect’s vision.”

This type of commitment and flexibility is something extremely important to clients in the fast-paced design world.

Carlson emphasized the power of Kurt’s “attention to detail and creativity,” when talking about how smaller installations of 2-3 pieces are just as important as large-scale ones with more than 100 different images.    

She said, “They’re all special in their own way” and the small ones are “just as important” because of their “ability to bring the outside in.”   She said the impact of putting the right image in just the right place can be huge. And it can be measured in the positive feedback clients receive after Kurt’s work has been installed.

Koroseal’sType II Vinyl Wallcovering, as seen above, offers extreme flexibility and durability according to Carlson.

From filling a wall space to extending down a long winding corridor, Koroseal’s ability to take Kurt’s high-resolution images and produce very clear, accurate color is something extremely important when considering overall design.  It brings the WOW factor to ordinary wall spaces.

And Koroseal can flawlessly handle the extremely large, high-resolution images Kurt produces, allowing his photographs to become powerful, organic parts of the built environment.

Koroseal’s Fusion Wall Protection offers its durability and cleanability at a higher level, which makes it a powerful way of transforming places like hospitals, behavioral health facilities and other healthcare environments into spaces that support calm and healing.

Fusion is tough. It fuses digital imagery and rigid wall protection sheets and it stands the test of time. It holds up to black marks on shoes, hospital carts and wheelchairs. Things that would typically stain a normal surface can be cleaned and wiped off easily, making it a highly sought-after product in healthcare design.

These pieces have the beauty and quality of a stunning art piece with the added advantage of decreasing acoustic disturbances in high-traffic areas. Artwork with benefits.
