Leading French high fashion luxury brand Hermès has showcased acrylic mirror domes by Allplastics Engineering at their store on Market Street in Sydney CBD, impressing passing pedestrians with the futuristic window displays.
The space-age theme is the brainchild of Hermès designer Chen Lu who utilised Allplastics’ acrylic mirror domes to test the limits of space. Lu depicts “polished mirrored-surface spheres in varied sizes, appearing to be free of gravity and floating within the windows' white space”.
The smooth mirrored-surface spherical shape of the acrylic mirror domes stretches the flat world into three-dimensional space. The bright reflective surface produces a mirror-like image, which allows it to be perfectly integrated into the surrounding environment to improve the quality and style of the design in a futuristic way. Acrylic mirror domes can be used in architectural design, home decoration and visual merchandising to portray fantasy, modernism and humour as well as the future.
A distinguished designer of objects, furniture and spaces, Lu produces works for premium brands, art galleries and magazines.
“These installations of repeated shiny spheres project a utopian vision of science, mathematics and space travel,” he explained. Lu complimented Allplastics for translating his vision into reality in this challenging project.
Allplastics Engineering can custom-fabricate geometric and bespoke shapes from acrylic to suit the application. EuroMir is a high-quality acrylic mirror offering excellent reflection quality and shatter resistance. It is suitable for a variety of applications to replace fragile and heavy glass mirrors. The acrylic mirror can be supplied in various colour options such as gold, matt or gloss silver.
Designers can use acrylic mirror domes to bring their imagination to life in a fun and futuristic way. Acrylic mirror has timeless appeal and harmonises well with contemporary décor.
