THE Solution

Bastion Experience, a leader in experiential marketing, entrusted DisplayWise, renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship, with the task of bringing their innovative vision to life.

With meticulous attention to detail, DisplayWise crafted bespoke elements that were not only visually stunning but also designed for careful handling and future use. The standout feature was the VAC-formed acrylic three-dimensional heart, skilfully constructed to serve as the undeniable centrepiece of the activation. Its rotating mechanism added an extra layer of intrigue, captivating the attention of customers and immersing them in the brand experience.

Given the positioning of the activation within the Pitt St retail precinct, DisplayWise encountered line-of-sight restrictions that required careful consideration. Drawing on our expertise and past experience for this site, DisplayWise collaborated closely with Bastion Experience to ensure that the design complied with the centre’s sightline regulations. DisplayWise proposed a seamless solution by staggering the side walls, providing viewers with glimpses beyond the activation boundaries while maintaining compliance.

Sustainability was a shared commitment between Bastion Experience and DisplayWise and aligned with L’Oreal’s dedication to environmental responsibility. Opportunities were actively sought to repurpose elements, reducing waste and minimising the impact on the environment. DisplayWise demonstrated dedication to sustainability by finding solutions that met both aesthetic and environmental standards when sourcing luxurious satin, chrome, and rose gold high gloss finishes.

Additionally, assets were repurposed to fit the Pitt St site’s unique footprint. The subfloor offset the sloping area, complemented by hired flooring and edge ramps for a seamless presentation. Reusing sustainable lightboxes and repurposing L’Oreal’s animation table showcased further ingenuity and resource optimisation. Energy-efficient LED lighting was seamlessly integrated throughout, illuminating the stunning display to create an atmosphere of elegance and allure.
