Working within the constraints of hanging weight limits from the existing Bourke Street Mall net above the tram lines, Best Group worked with engineering specifications to develop a suitable weighted product that would enable the vast quantity to be installed (together with rows of the original star decorations). The process involved sampling, working with the creative agency and vacuum moulders to effectively distort flat artwork into correct appearance once moulded (printed flat) and to achieve the right balance of translucency for illumination.
Best Group successfully delivered 800 moulded and printed acrylic bells with light fittings in record time for installation as part of the 2013 City of Melbourne Christmas Decoration program.
The result is one that has brought the Bourke Street Mall to life; adds to the city Christmas vibe and one that will be entrenched in Melbourne’s Christmas spirit for years to come.
Get in and enjoy the city this Christmas, experience Jingle Bells in Bourke Street, together with the myriad of other world class art installations that is putting Melbourne CBD on the map!
Merry Christmas to all! See you on the 7th January 2013
