3D Foils Exhibits at 100% Design London - September 2009
More than 400 people visited our stand at 100% Design London held at Earls Court on 24th to 27th September 2009. Our first time exhibiting at 100% Design London, we are thrilled with the interest shown in our products. Our stand showcased in particular three new product lines: Vitropan, our new range of 3D fabrics in acrylic or glass; Glass-line, which combines our Galaxy Marbles or Pearls with glass to create a stunning decorative panel (more details coming soon on our website); and ViewPan Cristal - our ViewPan core faced with decorative glass effect textured acrylic. ViewPan Cristal was developed to meet a client's particular requirement for a lightweight glass-like partition wall. We thought it might prove popular with a wider audience and the positive feedback received at 100% Design means we will be launching ViewPan Cristal in November 2009.

Venue Review of Leeds Academy - Night Magazine November 2008
"The bar is bright and inviting...the front bar shines"
Leeds Academy is one of Academy Music Group's pioneering venues providing multi-functional live music/club spaces that showcase high design and advanced technical wizardry. 3D Foils' ViewPan PMMA Radiant sheets feature as the bar front, and the column bases within the large club space are clad in Black & Silver Glitter panels. Designed by Blik Design, the overall effect is funky and modern with dazzling light effects which enhance the iridescent colours of the Radiant sheets and bounce off the sparkling glitter.
Venue Review of Pacha, London - Night Magazine August 2008
Ibizan club brand Pacha's interior is "dominated by sultry black, with glamorous detailing...and the extravagant additions of sparkly [wallcoverings]"
Designed in-house by Pacha UK Ltd, the project brief was for sparkle and 3D Foils' Black & Silver Glitter delivered. Dramatic in any lighting scheme, Black & Silver Glitter is perhaps most effective in low lighting levels. When multiple walls are covered as in Pacha, the effect is truly breathtaking.

3D Foils featured in Venue Review of Whisky Mist, London - Night Magazine July 2008
"All high gloss and ultra chic, the luxurious interior uses a simple yet dramatic palette of black, charcoal and gold."
3D Foils' contribution to the colour scheme for one of London's hottest venues, Whisky Mist at Park Lane's Hilton Hotel, was Deco-line Brass mirror . Specified by designers Blacksheep, the mirror echoes the golden amber shades of whisky. Lining the upper walls around the main bar area, the Brass mirror panels reflect the dramatic swirling shapes suspended from the ceiling.

3D Foils featured in Venue Review of Graphic Bar, Soho - Night Magazine June 2008
"The bar top has been crafted by 3D Foils Ltd using glitter infused acrylic that catches and deflects the light from various sources in the bar, which adds to the contemporary feel."
3D Foils' Sand Glitter was specified by Spread Design for the bar top of Urban Leisure's new 'Graphic Bar' in London's Golden Square, Soho. The Sand Glitter is complemented by the rich, dark chocolate tones which characterise the interiors. Credit for crafting the bar top lies with Indigo Design and Build who covered the Glitter sheets with protective laminated glass. Spread's Director Stuart Taylor says "if I was pushed for one aspect [I'm most proud of] it would be the gold glitter or the menus, but these are nothing without the totality of the bar".
