Illuminated Perspex® acrylic seats take centre stage in ITV’s newest gameshow – Sitting on A Fortune, presented by Gary Lineker.
Inplas Fabrications, West London based approved Perspex® fabricators, were involved in one of their most technically demanding projects when asked to produce the LED illuminated seats used by the contestants chasing the £100,000 top prize.
10mm Perspex® Opal 030 was used to create the curved lightbox seating design alongside 25mm Clear Cast Acrylic to create a sturdy frame. The frame was CNC cut to accept the PVC Foam cradle housing all LED lighting.
LEDs were placed 1.5mm from the diffusing Perspex® Opal surface – imperative for the lighting effects required on set.
The stunning finished chairs offer a slick uniformity in the centre of the studio; however the design defies the complexities within the design which saw 7 versions of the drawings through the prototyping phases.
