Acrylic Resin Design Guide Case Studies
Luxface Acrylic was chosen because of the flexibility of the material to fabricate the form we wanted to create and the ability to light it.
LUXFACE DEVELOPED AN ENTIRE PRE-LIT SOLUTION TO BE EASILY ATTACHED GIVEN THE ONSITE CONDITIONS.
THE SOLUTION INCLUDED:
Acrylic Resin heat forming to achieve the desired radius
Luxface proprietary translucent material seaming
A custom engineered structure to bear the weight while minimizing the visible hardware
Custom LED lighting for even illumination
Consultation on the surrounding ceiling soffit to create the final integrated effect
The acrylic light seam creates a monolithic corner condition. CCD Design’s innovative angled lightbox spurred Luxface to
pioneer a new light seam capability—a radiused, sloped joinery condition. This advanced method is now a standard Luxface offering.
Factory installed proprietary lighting. Tested to ensure an even glow and desired intensity.
Designed custom hardware brackets to attach the Chroma feature to an on-site support system.
Guided the architect to design a ceiling recess to enable concealed hardware.
A six inch reveal around the perimeter of the feature allows for future access to the lighting.
Panel-to-panel construction detail
Structurally bonded the material edge to edge to create a virtually seamless appearance.
Guided the contractor to locate the power supply in a remote location.
