Framed in Perspex®
Brasserie Centrale is the signature onsite restaurant at the London Marriott Hotel Marble Arch. Specialising in creative cuisine, this urban cool restaurant commissioned a simple but funky one-off window display to catch the eye of passers-by.
Bevan Howard, a boutique graphic design and illustration studio in London’s Clerkenwell, proposed the idea of suspending large Perspex® acrylic picture frames in each window, which would add a three dimensional effect to the portrayal of a selection of lifetstyle items. These items included a cake stand, a chandelier and an armchair.
Fabricators Digital Space were recruited to build and install the frames, measuring approximately 1368 x 1150mm in 5mm thickness and suggested the use of Perspex® Fluorescent colours, Acid Green, Lava Orange and Mars Red to give the window displays that extra zing.
Perspex® Fluorescent is available in 5 colours from stock at Perspex Distribution – including a newly stocked 10mm thickness.
Clear latex inkjet printed vinyl stickers were applied to 3mm Perspex® clear and suspended within the frames. The frames were then hung on a 1.5mm cable display system. Accompanying each Perspex® frame, are additional printed vinyl images applied directly to the windows.
Jesse Brown, Director of Bevan Howard commented: “Through introducing accent colours from the Perspex® Fluorescents range we were able to create these fun framed illustrations and were really able to play with colour to make the frames pop out.”
