For the renowned fashion brand Louis Vuitton, hoardings during refurbishment are a key component to their brand experience. Aesthetic hoardings attract attention, garnering publicity and buzz – even if the store is closed. Nowadays a successful hoarding does not only need to serve a purpose but should also be “Instragram-able”.
Earlier this year we received news that Birmingham based interior and architectural design studio SCULPT, in collaboration with STEAMhouse, a local center for creative innovation was developing an installation made of DISPA® with the goal of testing DISPA’s capabilities and unique properties.
DISPA® consists of a patented embossed formed paper core that is laminated on both sides with bright white, smooth paper surfaces – a unique composition that makes this paper board lightweight yet extremely rigid, strong and dimensionally stable. Signs created with lightweight DISPA® stay flat yet are easy to handle and hang. Manufactured with 100 percent Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)-certified paper (FSC-C074317), DISPA® is fully recyclable. (The FSC is a nongovernmental organization operating in more than 80 countries to facilitate responsible forest management in accordance with social, economic and ecological needs.)
3A Composites USA is pleased to announce that DISPA® graphic display board – a uniquely laminated structure of embossed formed paper that is 100 percent recyclable – now is available in the Americas.
DISPA® will be showcased at the 2019 ISA
International Sign Expo April 24-26 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in
Las Vegas. Show-goers are invited to stop by the 3A Composites USA Booth No. 1327
to view DISPA® samples.
