Bencore Lightben Opal White
Houston, TX United States
The Audi vehicle collection points are designed to be dramatic and elegant, and to invoke excitement as owners drive off in their new automobile. Audi were looking for a luminescent wall and ceiling system made with high quality materials that are easy to maintain.
In the US, Audi use opal faces against the transparent cylinder core to provide evenly diffused light. Bencore was selected for the material's durability and excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
In several UK showrooms, Audi prefer Lightben Plus Clear with PETG skins. Acrylic surfaces work better because they are more durable and have a smoother, better finish, however as in these cases PETG has better Fire performance.
