The Challenge

When Boston architecture firm Bergmeyer Associates, Inc. contacted DuPont Corian® seeking a company that could turn their vision into reality, DuPont immediately referred them to surfaceLAB™.  That’s because DuPont knows that the folks at surfaceLAB™ are the experts when it comes to architectural components and features. However, more importantly, DuPont knew that surfaceLAB™ was really, really good at creating backlit features. surfaceLAB™ worked directly with Bergmeyer’s design team to create a series of illuminated wall features to look like the ‘contact lens’ imagery the client desired.

Project Details

Client: 1800contacts

Location: 1800contacts Corporate Headquarters, Draper, UT

Date: November 31, 2016


The panels were produced from 1/2″ thick Corian® Glacier Ice. The back side of the panels were made opaque, to block any light from leaking through the panels.

The ‘contact lens arcs’ were then machined into the back side of the panels allowing light to pass through only the arcs.

The lighting was also designed by surfaceLAB™ and utilized flexible RGB LED’s.

The system was pre-programmed for the client’s preferred color schemes while also giving the client the ability to operate each of the five floors individually via a hand-held wireless remote control.

The results speak for themselves.
