Size: Multiple locations in Colorado, Texas and Utah
Scope: Technical Drawings, Prototyping and Fabrication of Art Installation.
Design collaboration with Gensler.
Unique + Notable:
We assisted in the design of a breathtaking feature wall using credit cards laid out in the shape of continents- a map that was a literal representation of the brand tagline. Various colors indicate different areas of the world for a gradient of color illuminating the space.
Taking this from concept to installation took nearly a full year, including prototyping, fabrication and installation. The internal lighting was the most significant challenge. Extensive prototyping was needed to ensure the light traveled in a narrow enough beam to concentrate the light within the acrylic; and stepped router cut spaces for cards created a frosted effect that diffused the light around the cards, creating a “glow” from behind.
Manny’s Project Pride: We had to develop custom linear led lighting to realize the design of the custom illuminated map. This process was long and tedious but the outcome was inspirational.
