Backlighting Resin with LED Panels
Resin and acrylic surfaces can provide intense color and flexibility. The lightweight nature allows for ease of installation and reduced structural support or hardware. Many resin-based products are so translucent, attention to the structural systems and lighting design need to be considered to properly eliminate shadows, hot spots, or visual identification of the light source.
For the renovation of Harrah’s Rincon Cafe, GPI’s FLAT-Lite™ custom LED panels were used to backlight 3Form© resin panels. GPI created a custom standoff hardware system to suspend the backlit panels without evidence of shadows. All of the LED panels were wired back to Infuse™ Power Supplies so that the backlighting systems were run off a single power source.
