A British design and manufacturing company called Bright is celebrating the 100% Design exhibition in the UK by erecting some of their origami-style semi-permanent buildings at the event. The transparent geodesic structures are made of Spectar copolyester from Eastman Chemical.

“The Bright building is a flexible and versatile structure that relies on nothing other than folded sheet material to create a beautiful architectural form that is quick and easy to erect,” says Nick Gant, a member of the Bright team. “It is incredibly strong, and has no need for complex or expensive frameworks or supporting structures.”

The product is aimed at any individual or company which needs an interior or exterior space for a promotion or exhibition area, or perhaps for entertaining.

The copolyester sheet used in the Bright building is produced by Barlo Plastics of Belgium, and fabricated by UK distributor Plastics Plus Ltd.

According to Eastman, Spectar copolyester sheet can be routed, welded, drilled, bent hot or cold, or joined by rivets, screws or bolts. It accepts screen printing, painting and hot stamping.
