Interior Designers and Architects May Now Browse High-end Audio Offerings
Bellingham, WA — November 25, 2008 — StJohn Group, North American distributor for Artcoustic, the leader of superbly engineered, aesthetically designed on-wall loudspeakers & subwoofers, has announced the addition of Artcoustic products to TODL.com, the Trade Only Design Library web site. TODL.com claims that more than 40,000 registered designers, architects and specifiers have password-protected access to its database of residential, hospitality, and contract product and services. TODL.com recently announced it is now the official design library to Contract, HospitalityDesign, and K+BB magazines.
Free to the trade, TODL.com is not a directory, but a trade buyer’s online product library with actual specs on hundreds of thousands of residential, contract, hospitality and healthcare products.
This investment by StJohn Group further demonstrates its commitment to adding value in the marketplace by educating the design community about well designed alternative AV product solutions while at the same time, bringing together two important groups of professionals that vitally need each other’s talents and services.
The web site contains thousands of stunning images and product descriptions. Artcoustic products are featured in several categories — easily browseable — with links to in situ photos and product shots. There are also links to the online and PDF versions of the 108 page Artcoustic Picture Book and 108 page Artcoustic Art Portfolio. Both coffee table quality guide books are also available in printed form to the design community, authorized Artcoustic dealers, and their clients.
Designers may save products of interest to an unlimited number of project folders and have instant access to contact information for StJohn Group, who will put interested parties in touch with local Artcoustic dealers in their areas who offer design, installation, calibration and post installation services.
Artcoustic dealers may also access the web site to give their designers tours of the products and photography. Dealers must obtain a password before accessing the web site.
