Lose yourself in the colour chaos of ‘Kaleido’.
A chromatic explosion made from upcycled cosmetic bottles, Kaleido is every maximalist’s dream. Bold, beautiful and mesmeric, many people have bought our Kaleido panels as wall art for contemplation.
Closer examination of the material’s surface yields clues about its recycling journey, with smatterings of bar codes and labelling becoming visible.
Kaleido is a guaranteed head-turner. Use it to make a bold statement with your design.
Every panel is unique and colour and pattern may vary from sheet to sheet and from batch to batch. If you strictly need to minimise colour variation, discuss your needs with us prior to order to make sure all your material comes from the same batch.
We try very hard to make our sheets as blemish-free as we can, but they are not perfect; for example, they may have dimples and minor marks which are outside our control. Please call us to discuss this if it could be a problem.
The listed board thicknesses are nominal: thermal expansion of some sheets can be 2mm per metre over a 10 degree (Celcius) range.
200x100cm, though often the panel will arrive slightly larger with unfinished edges (approx 209x109cm).
5mm, 12mm, 20mm
