These internally illuminated structures for Cargo Restaurant, form the main theme of this restaurant's decor. The rock-like wall forms and faceted ceiling elements are constructed from a tubular steel frame that was all manufactured off site.

The covering skin, also made off site, is manufactured from Firex fabric which provides a light box-like quality, that flattened the internal LED lighting providing a wash of colour.

For access to the inside of the light units, a Velcro detail was included meaning that transformers and LED light strips can be replaced with no disturbance to the overall forms.
