Let LuciteLux® be Your Canvas
Lucite International and Raydoor, a sliding wall and sliding door company specializing in interior dividing solutions, recently teamed up to deliver a CEU course in New York City. About 25 designers and architects interested in receiving continuing education credits participated in the course on acrylic for architectural applications.
The CEU was held as part of Raydoor’s Art of Division show, an exhibition highlighting original pieces that redefine the function of art in interior space. When the team at Raydoor needed a translucent, durable material to make their signature sliding walls and doors, they turned to LuciteLux® acrylic. The result of this early collaboration was LuciteLux® Myst®, a material with all the benefits of a frosted material but with a glossy finish.
“Designers love our doors with clear frosted acrylic because the natural translucency keeps the focus on their design – red rooms glow red, and beams of sunlight streak shadows of white, yellow and orange across a room as the sun changes hue throughout the day,” said Luke Siegel, president of Raydoor. “Frosted materials we used prior to working with Lucite International to develop Myst® were too vulnerable to scratches and fingerprints. This meant limited sales in commercial and hospitality markets where durability is paramount. With Myst®, now we have the frosted appearance permanently manufactured into the acrylic sheet instead of on the surface.”

The LuciteLux®-sponsored course is registered with the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) for continuing education credits (completing the course counts as one CEU credit). Credit is accepted by the AIA, ASIS, IIDA and IDC.
