Allplastics Engineering provided one of their panel products for a unique installation at a hair salon in Gordon NSW. Allplastics’ Acrylic Couture, a relatively new light plastic panel, was supplied to the Shear Talent Boutique to create an installation that would convey the same sense of beauty that they strove to deliver to their customers.
Creating an installation with Acrylic Couture involves suspending carefully selected materials within a sheet of crystal clear acrylic. These materials take on an ethereal effect when illuminated by a light source, as the particles appear to glow from every angle.
For the salon installation, the customer chose Silver Fiocchi as the material of choice. As part of the Fiocchi range of Acrylic Couture, thin silver metal flakes hang delicately within the transparent plastic. The LED lighting surrounding the piece highlights every contour and ripple in the metal to create a magical illusion. Each panel measures 2,400mm x 1,000mm.
Additionally, Allplastics also laser engraved an acrylic sign for the boutique.
Allplastics offers a variety of uniquely beautiful pieces of Acrylic Couture. Other styles include Gold and Copper Fiocchi, as well as more exotic materials such as feathers and Malachite.
