Architectural Precision from Denny Plastics
London based approved fabricators Denny Plastics were commissioned to create scaled Perspex® acrylic architectural models for an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, on behalf of world leading Architects Wilkinson Eyre.
The model represented a ½ scale beam designed by Wilkinson Eyre, recreating part of their design within the award winning Stratford Station building project. The rebuilt East London station helped create a striking identity for the new Jubilee Line Extension in the late 1990’s and was later used as the gateway to the London Olympic park.
Perspex® clear acrylic in 5mm, 15mm and 20mm was used to create an optically clear view of the engineered beam, with Denny Plastics’ accurate CNC cutting, polishing and UV bonding creating crisp joints which reveal the design within.

Perspex® Clear Cast
Fluorescent Ferrari by Denny Plastics
Features product: Perspex® Fluorescent
London based fabricator Denny Plastics were recently commissioned to work alongside London’s best up-and-coming architects as part of the RIBA London Regent Street Windows Project. Based on the theme of ‘play’, they used Perspex® Fluorescent to mould car profiles for the Ferrari flagship store.
Each architect was challenged to create a spatial installation that reflected their retail partner’s brand, as well as their own practice, while also responding to the overarching theme.
Steve Kettle, Director at Denny Plastics commented “the range of colours and effects available within the Perspex® acrylic range gave us great freedom and inspiration to create a stunning design and unique installation.”
Echoing the smoke trails created in Ferrari’s wind tunnel, the Ferrari window design sent ribbons of neon light travelling across the shop front in a turbulent pattern. Playing with perception, the ribbons were blown from one shape to another, creating the outline of the iconic Formula 1 car on one side, and the classic Ferrari Gran Tourismo shape on the other.
To create the profiles, Denny Plastics had to first fabricate formers and moulds by CNC routing MDF to shape. 3000mm x 100mm wide strips of 5mm fluorescent Perspex sheet were then cut and polished before being heated in a large oven. The flaccid lengths were then laid into the MDF formers and left to cool before being fixed together onsite.
Founded in the 1940’s, Denny Plastics have a longstanding reputation as a leading fabricator offering laser cutting, CNC routing and general fabrication. For more information about Denny Plastics visit www.dennyplastics.co.uk.
