Exhibition stand at Toyfair 2013

We were approached by our client Mako Creative to help them design and build a stand for their client Tolo.

We have taken the idea from their new Pop Up Farm House toy and made roofs with chimney that housed lights above the slat walls where they displayed their goods.

The exhibition was in London Olympia and the position of the stand meant they had a supporting column in the middle of it that we had to work with. We have clad the column and added a roof to it. The sides had 3D elements to it – a window to the side and a replica of the toy’s rattle, buttons and spinning beads that were in fact, spinning and not just a prop.

A picket fence was added to the plinth at the bottom of the column to finish the look and feel of the stand.

The client also sells a range of gardening tools and these were housed in a shed – complete with tongue & groove walls and a shed roof on top.

It was an absolute pleasure to be able to design such fun stand and receive the great feedback that we did from the client as well as the show visitors.

Microtile surround

We are keen to showcase our recent collaboration with our client Alive&Sound of the microtile surround we’ve built. The brief included the maximum height, the size of the microtiles and a request to fit 8 wide by 6 high tiles into a curved front surround.

The surround was made out of four pieces and finished in high gloss white paint.

We think photos speak for themselves. Here are a few from the initial design to the finished product. And if you are looking to have something like this for your event get in touch by phone on 01978 780 421 or email info@blackiris-exhibitions.co.uk for further information.

Shopping Mall Installation

Three weeks ago we’ve received a phone call from Creative 7 company wanting a display for a shopping mall where they will be selling their products. The brief was to look crisp, modern and suitable for displaying various gadgets. It needed a fair amount of storage together with a slat wall display. They also needed it in two weeks. This was a tall order and we had to push it back for a week but delivered the whole stand within three weeks of contact.

The finish was high gloss pain to give it the fresh, crisp look they were after. The storage was incorporated in all of the orange boxes as well as a walk in storage with lockable doors on the back. Small details such as matching paintwork on the lights, shelve holders and cable port really pulled it all together.

This installation being in a shopping mall, we had to do it out of opening hours. So last Friday we arrived at Crawley at 7pm after a nearly 5 hour drive and worked until late to install the display. We fitted shelves on site so the client could decide whether they wanted two or three and make sure the spacings were adequate for product display, cable port for the till was drilled on site so the client decided where the till will be positioned. Handles for sliding doors were fitted on site as well as all the graphics.

The first weekend was a big success, our client sold a lot of gadgets and had great response from everyone about the stand. They love it and we are over the moon with the feedback we’ve had from our client.
