Solid Surface Sculptures in the Palais Vest
In the centre of Recklinghausen, the “Palais Vest”, one of the most modern shopping centres in the Ruhr area, has been constructed and offers its visitors a stylish reception. Palace-like elements can be found through the entire new building. Two large chess pieces made of the solid surface material Avonite® are not only eye-catching but also provide seating options.
The two chess pieces reach from the basement level of the shopping centre to the ground floor. Their bases each form a circular seating area and are ideal for taking a break from shopping. An accessible playing field with a chessboard motif extends over a large area throughout the building.
