River West Installation – Athens.

Over the last few months Unibox have been reminded never to underestimate the power of the internet.

It was extremely nice to see that people from countries around the world are visiting the Unibox site, when an enquiry from the newly opened River West mall in Athens,Greece came in requesting information on our RMU’s & Counter Kiosks. Andy Ferns, Unibox MD, was quick to pick up on the enquiry and scheduled a visit to the mall itself, carrying out a survey of the site and discussing specifications and products that would work perfectly within the newly built mall. Their expert manufacturing team quickly got to work, designed brand new, bespoke Retail Merchandising Units, featuring Lumenal LED lighting, along with one of Unibox’s latest innovations, a frameless Counter Kiosk.

Photographs were taken each day of production and sent to the Client to reassure them the correct progress was being made and this also enabled them to comment and liaise with the project manager in a cost effective efficient manner. These RMU’s & Kiosks were designed to be in keeping with River West mall’s design ethos, which highlights accessibility along with carefully designed aesthetics. Another key feature of the mall, is that the building design optimises the use of natural light. Therefore it was important that anything being installed into the mall didn’t detract from this allowing for the perfect use of Lumenal LED lighting. Utilising Lumenal LED lighting within the RMU’s & Counter Kiosks meant that River West could specifically control what colour temperature the LED luminaires operate at, ranging from ‘Warm Light’ which features red-peak intensity, to ‘Cool Light’, which features a blue peak intensity.


This project was planned to be completed for the Greek Easter bank holidays, and we’re proud to say that right through concept, design and completion Unibox satisfied the Clients expectations and the stands were up and running right on time.

On completion of the project, Kelvin Crutchlow, Head of Operations at River West Shopping Centre (Athens, Greece) commented: ‘When looking at new Retail display solutions for our open spaces within the Centre, we were clear with our brief. We wanted a high quality product, which would fit in with the ethos of the carefully planned and designed Shopping Centre.

We were extremely happy with the solutions that Unibox provided us. In addition, clear communication throughout the whole project made for smooth planning between two different countries.

Our thanks especially go out to Andy Ferns & the installation team, who travelled here to ensure that the project ran efficiently from the design stages through to completion.’
