NanoLumens® is taking its revolutionary new line of LED displays into a totally new environment at the 2012 DIFFA “DINING BY DESIGN” tour that opens today and runs through March 26, 2012 in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show at Pier 94 in New York City. Resource Furniture, the leading retailer of luxury multi-functional furniture systems, has partnered with top New York interior designer Marie Aiello, of Marie Aiello Design Studio, to transform her dining environment into a “Bioluminescent Evening at Sea” using a uniquely designed NanoLumens LED display that surrounds diners with high-resolution video content specially produced for the exhibit by PixelFire.
According to Rick Cope, President and CEO of NanoLumens, the massive 4.0mm pixel pitch display measures 7.5 feet tall by 17.5 feet wide with a 90-degree concave curve in the middle, a unique design that showcases how NanoLumens continues to push innovation in building displays of any shape or size imaginable. The display’s diagonal measurement is approximately 19 feet and features the company’s high contrast, tough face LED boards, which are designed for use in high traffic areas. These boards protect the display from being damaged by people touching the display, bumping into it, or other potential mishaps. The NanoLumens display actually forms two walls of Resource Furniture’s dining exhibit.
“One of the many benefits of this technology is that it can be viewed in close settings without diminished picture quality or blurring,” Cope said today. “This unique feature has allowed us to present the content created by PixelFire in a way that brings to life, through a dynamic, multi-media presentation, the sense of pure luminescence as experienced by the designer while swimming in the waters off of Cartagena, Columbia.”
According to designer Marie Aiello, she chose the NanoLumens display for her exhibit because it allowed her to completely express her creativity without posting any obstacles. “The display is simply an amazing work of art in and of itself,” she explained. “It can be made to conform to any exhibition environment, and the brilliance of the screen resolution is simply stunning, and bathes our diners in an ethereal glow. For this exhibit, the display literally became an extension of my imagination.”
“This one-of-a-kind exhibition is an inspiration,” said Ron Barth, CEO of Resource Furniture. “Just as DIFFA has fused creativity and passion to transform the fundraising landscape, Resource and NanoLumens have united under Marie’s direction with transformative results.”
First introduced in 2010, NanoLumens digital displays remain the only solution of their kind. They conform to fit any surface, are thin, lightweight and energy efficient. NanoLumens is the only company in the world able to reliably manufacture ultra-thin and lightweight, easy-to-install and maintain, seamless 6mm pixel pitch flexible LED displays in virtually any shape or size to meet each customer’s unique requirements.
