Fabricators Create Incredible Dibond Pavilion For Maker Faire In Rome

Tecno Soluzioni, MEDAARCH, Maker Faire, Dibond Pavilion, Rome, 3A Composites Graphic DisplayThe Maker Faire is considered the “Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.” It brings together the greatest global minds to display invention and creativity. Since its inception in 2006, the event has had over 1 million attendees and has a specialized European Edition known as Maker Faire Rome.

Tecno Soluzioni, MEDAARCH, Maker Faire, Dibond Pavilion, Rome, 3A Composites Graphic DisplayThe event explains, “At Maker Faire, you’ll find inventions in the field of science and technology (from 3D printers to wearables, through to drones, robots and digital manufacturing), but also new forms of art, entertainment, crafts, food experiments and attractions never seen before.”

It was at this exhibit that Italian fabricators, Tecno Soluzioni, displayed a Dibond pavilion, designed by MEDAARCH. The pavilion was constructed utilizing a series of Dibond aluminum composite panels in white and gray. Tecno Solutzioni are heavy users of another 3A Composites aluminum composite material, Alucobond. The team does a number of Corporate Identity projects using the ACM around Europe. Yet, for the pavilion, Alucobond was too heavy and Dibond offered a lighter weight for this particular application.

Tecno Soluzioni, MEDAARCH, Maker Faire, Dibond Pavilion, Rome, 3A Composites Graphic DisplayDibond was specified due to its “absolute flatness, excellent paintability, insurance in lead time and the quality of the material in general,” explains Luigi Nappo of Tecno Soluzioni. For this particular application the fabricators did no treatment of the panels in terms of printing or painting, leaving the panels as supplied.

The team further explains they had no issues in terms of the fabrication process and since 3A Composites materials make up such a large amount of their product use or their “daily bread” as they explain, they are constantly pushing the boundaries and testing the limits of what the materials are capable of.
