Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse, LAX

Utilizing a range of digital and traditional fabrication services, we helped Slade Architecture their sleek design realized for the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LAX.

Virtually all of the surfaces of this interior project featured prominent curves, requiring flawless, high-grade finishes.

Leveraging our massive thermoformer, we fabricated the entire curvilinear feature wall from custom cast Corian. Starting off as a reception desk at the entrance, this solid surface transforms into a series of tables and eventually forms the bar itself.

In addition to the thermoformed components, we also produced a range of architectural accents and furnishings for the space. Using rolled sheets of copper, we fabricated a warm and lustrous backsplash behind the bar, and—with some subtle millwork—a 24 ft long bamboo tabletop took on curves that echo California’s surfing culture. Working with upholstery and 3D modeling, we helped realize Slade’s design for custom sofas distributed throughout the lounge.

Beyond fabrication services, we worked closely with the client to provide engineering services that helped bring these distinct features and materials together with a flawless finish.
