Project Featured as Case Study

The customer has used Dip-Tech technology in precious public art and building projects successfully.

 

For longevity, exposure to weather, and create a bespoke statement architectural work that is of cultural significance in a prominent new city foreshore development.

 

“As it is a very public work, the hardwearing nature of ceramic printing answered the need of the architects to provide a design that would withstand the harsh Perth sun, near the riverfront, and a high traffic zone. As the brief was to create a “diamond’ like design, the transparency of the printing allowed the designer to play into the ideas of shifting light and colour by day and by night.”
