… XYZ Design was briefed by PrimeMall Media to develop a new information kiosk at the V&A Waterfront shopping complex in Cape Town. The brief called for a kiosk that offers a larger-than-life interactive experience. At the same time its aesthetics needed to suit the V&A Waterfront’s new Contemporary interior. These requirements were met through the use of a double sided design incorporating two back-to-back 55 inch LCD screens, with a through glass touch foil. The unique construction allowed solid glass panels to be mounted on the front and rear of the enclosure without necessitating holes to mount traditional touch screen technology. The edging of the unit is clad in Surrino to provide a seamless elegance. The unit stands 2.4 meters high and 1m across with a thickness of only 200mm, and is, without a doubt, the first of its kind in South Africa. This kiosk design is one that will definitely raise the bar in shopping mall information kiosks.
