RNL Design in Denver, (RNLdesign.com) conceived the concept of a tapered hall with built in glowing acrylic architectual/graphic panels. Augie designed it and Eye Candy’s crack team is producing and installing. “The star trek corridor” as one contractor called it, is coming together beautifully after many, “not so beautiful”, engineering hurdles to overcome. The challenge was the hidden 90 degree joint and the function of the incredibly heavy, 1/2″ frosted acrylic graphic panels had to be designed to swing open for light maintenance. With the help of our great fabrication specialist Stan Gossling, (GosslingWoodDesign.com) the install is now on “Cruise Control”. I hope I didnt just curse the job . This custom work is intense but it gets us the most fan mail. More images to come as this project unfolds. We specialize in custom interior design/architectual projects such as wall coverings, art, acylic, glass, backlit graphics, light boxes, signage and door numbers so if you know any interior designers or architect firms please, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAN, send them a link. Your the best! (if you do that)
The look of this cozy little sipping oasis was inspired from my own italian grand parants living room and their massive collection family photos. I guess there is comfort in staring at your unsmiling ancestors. The custom printed wall covering is a black to wine gradient, overlaid with digital photos of the owner’s family from Cyprus. After scanning and touching up all the photos, we created the frames digitally to create depth and shading. The custom light boxes are lit only from the top, creating a soft glow which works really well with the art. Some of the art is stock and the other five pieces I created specifically for this project.
I didn’t ask but I am sure their are hundreds of reasons for a lady to have a spare pair of underwear… in a pill bottle. Our mission was to, as always, garner attention. We think we did the trick with this large format lenticular piece. I never leave home without them.
