Style is pleased to announce the arrival of James Calfe, who many architects, specifiers and contractors will know thanks to his years of experience in the moveable partitioning walls sector.

James joins Style to work alongside Efrem Brynin, focusing on Skyfold – the hugely innovative, vertically rising, fully automatic, acoustic partitioning wall, which is discreetly housed in the ceiling cavity.

“I’m delighted that James has joined our Skyfold team,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director. “He is someone we have known in the industry for many years and have a great deal of admiration for. As a result, we’re thrilled he has now chosen to become an important part of our growing team.

“James will focus on Skyfold’s international clients, while Efrem Brynin will remain focused on the UK and London sectors. His appointment comes at an incredibly exciting time, with demand for Skyfold higher than ever.”

For anyone involved in the construction, refurbishment or fit-out sector who would like to see Skyfold in action, Style has recently opened a new London Showroom. Located near the Barbican, and perfectly placed within London’s interior furnishings sector, James or Efrem would be delighted to meet you at the showroom to provide a full demonstration.

As well as Skyfold, it houses an impressive range of partitioning wall systems, rooms with differing levels of acoustic integrity, a variety of finishes and guests can also see the walls’ operation, stacking options and technical specifications.

Style Launches New Product for Sports Halls

Style has launched a new partitioning wall system, ideal for sport halls in schools and other leisure facilities.

Called Multiroll, the moveable wall system has already been installed in the main hall of the new £11 million Leominster Primary school in Herefordshire, and at Windygoul - an Eco school in the south of Tranent, East Lothian.

“Multiroll is a great new addition to our portfolio,” said Mike Fine, Style’s director for the Midlands. “As a partitioning wall with optional retractable side guides, Multiroll is activated by the simple push of a button.

“Mounted either in a beam area of a roof or invisibly fitted between a suspended ceiling, it can be installed as a laterally guided partition, stepped partition or safety curtain.

“Ideal for sport halls in schools and other leisure facilities, this partitioning wall system has the option to be fitted with sound absorbing non-woven fabric providing noise insulation, shorter reverberation times and improved voice audibility.”

Tony Enticknap, Style’s Finance Director and Co-Founder, Retires

Its not often we use our newsletter to focus on individuals, however Tony Enticknap who co-founded Style back in 1999, and has been finance director ever since, has decided to retire. He leaves Style in October.

Tony started Style Partitions 15 years ago with Julian Sargent, who remains Style’s group managing director. In Tony’s capacity as finance director, Style quickly became the UK market leader in movable partitioning walls and now serves architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients through its five regional offices. The company is also celebrating the launch of a new London showroom, set to become the UK’s most innovative centre for interior fit outs.

“It is hard to describe in a few words the incredible role that Tony has played since we first opened our doors for business,” said Julian Sargent.

“He has carefully nurtured Style into a company that delivers quality in everything it does, offers an outstanding combination of people, products and processes and, thanks to his incredibly astute financial management, he has steered us through the highs and lows of a changing economy, including one of the worst global recessions many of us have ever experienced, making sure we have always remained financially robust.

“On a professional note, he couldn’t leave our business in better shape for its next phase of growth, and on a personal note I couldn’t have worked with a better business partner and friend.”

As a keen wildlife photographer, Tony plans to travel the world with his wife visiting many of the places he always dreamed of seeing. On behalf of everyone at Style, we wish him a very happy retirement.
