‘The Sky it the Limit’ for HI-MACS® at 100% Design Show
Belgian designer Xavier Bonte set himself the challenge
of building a household object that would be both a work of art,
and a useful, compact device for urban living.
Inspired by a dream about a cloud, he developed his 'The Sky Is
The Limit' kitchen island pod using HI-MACS®solid
It was a big draw at the 100% Design Show in London recently
where it was highlighted as one of the top 20 designs to watch and
was featured on the BBC News Technology website (see link below)
When all of the doors are closed, the
technical aspect of the island disappears and the blue lines remain
in contrast to the stark white, resembling an inversion of the
white contrails of an airplane in a blue sky.
Distributed exclusively in
the UK and Ireland by James Latham, HI-MACS® is a solid
surface offering superior design possibilities and excellent
long-term performance, used both in the home and in many different
commercial environments, from hotels
to healthcare, retail to marine.
With its balance of beauty and
performance, HI-MACS® lends itself to imaginative uses, innovative
designs and enduring applications.
If you can imagine it, you can
probably create it with HI-MACS®.
Available in over 100 colours, and
four thicknesses HI-MACS® can be carved, routed or worked like
wood, moulded, thermoformed or inlaid… the design options are
