Aglo Systems was nominated by Probuild to manufacture the architectural ceiling feature located in the central mall area of Eastland Shopping Centre in Melbourne.
The aesthetic design concept of the non-illuminated ceiling feature was created by Buchan Group and spans over 500 square metres in area; 90 metres in length. It features suspended alternating anodised aluminium blades which reflects sunlight filtering through from the overhead skylights and becomes a moving light feature.
The engineered design, manufacture and onsite installation support was performed by Aglo Systems. The chandelier structure was engineered so all the pieces were manufactured from laser cut and folded aluminium sheet metal, ensuring all locations were precise and consistent before welding. The suspended supporting structure was a framework of thin powder coated sheet metal, which was engineered to display only a subtle presence above the blades.
