Luminous World Map Using ACRYLITE®

At the Schaeffler booth, a 65 sq. ft. light-graphic world map shows the company’s sites in changing luminous colors. The continents were engraved on a transparent ACRYLITE® sheet and edge-illuminated by RGB LEDs. The cars, also illuminated, were mounted at an offset in front of the sheet. Each of the cars is a free form shape consisting of slim light panels covered with the sheet. It is also printed on the reverse.
