In April, Unibox launched a new product, Ledge 105 at the VM Show in London. Ledge 105 features the latest in LED edge lighting technology, making it possible to create sophisticated lightboxes which contain an easily reconfigurable, magnetic display system.

Following the show, Unibox has been working closely with the innovative, British design team at Tom Dixon to test its adaptability and experiment with the boundaries of Ledge 105 for their Portobello Dock store. Nick Wraith, Managing Director at Unibox was on site for the install and commented: “Ledge 105 is our latest product development showcasing our lightbox and tension fabric capabilities. Designing Ledge 105, we never imagined it would be quite this big, supporting such heavy items. However, as a company, we’ve always strived to push product boundaries beyond the expectation of their use – and that’s exactly what we’ve done with Ledge 105 for Tom Dixon”.

The Ledge 105 installed at the Portobello Dock store is much larger than our original prototypes at the VM Show, and the shelves are wider, challenging the strength of the magnets, highlighting the flexibility of the product. It’s been a fantastic first install and has helped us explore the versatility that Ledge 105 can offer any retailer, visual merchandiser or designer.”

Tom Dixon’s iconic designs are elegantly displayed on bespoke laser cut shelving, attached by the Ledge 105’s invisible, magnetic display system. “We’re always impressed by the flexibility of the systems that manifest from the Unibox team. British heritage and local manufacturing remains at the heart of our business and it’s a genuine pleasure to work with a fellow British manufacturer with such bountiful capabilities.

We are delighted to have their latest innovation – the Ledge 105 – newly installed in our London flagship store. For us it works as a sophisticated, functional retail solution that combines luminosity with luminous graphic backdrop with adjustable shelving for us to merchandise.” – Nikki Talbot, Exhibition Design Manager at Tom Dixon.
