The Pebble Panel
This is a perfect example of the true thermoforming potential of a single panel of 6mm solid surface sheet formed over a textured surface, when lighting is used to cast a shadow it creates a very attractive pattern; this particular panel is the face of two custom wall cabinets used to store DVDs and Blu Rays for a private client. We installed spot lighting above the units to cast the shadow and LED lighting behind the back of the cabinets to create a glow of light.
To manufacture the panels we heated 6mm sheets of LG HI-MACS Alpine White to 180 degrees centigrade using or specialist heating oven. The hot sheet was then transferred to our silicone membrane press where the material was formed under pressure over a textured surface.
