Google Takes Over Times Square with our help!

Symmetry International was contracted through Magnetic, NYNY to create thirteen themed Android characters for Google’s premier event in Time Square NY. Following the tag line “BE TOGETHER NOT THE SAME”, Symmetry created general characters including a Shopper, Banker, Boxer and Skateboarder as well as NY themed specific characters including Andy Warhol and the Naked Cowboy. Looking over them all, was, of course, the always familiar and iconic Andy the Android.

Destination XL New Flagship Store in Chicago

Just off the Magnificent Mile in Chicago  Destination XL’s new flagship has opened. Working with their design group Symmetry developed several products for them. Needing a large oversized logo panel  we furnished  twelve 6′x4′ custom molded, undulated faux wood panels pieced together to complete a wall of logos. The panels are cast and pass a Class 1 rating.  We also provided a custom colored simulated brick as well as a replication of a vintage bumper car.

Tavolino

Patriot Place, Foxboro, Ma
 Symmetry was engaged to create this serpentine soffet.  Working closely with the designers and architects, SPI was able to work out all of the details and excute this riveting feature. This feature encompasses the entire bar and is approx forty foot in length. SPI specializes in solving problems and making designers’ visions come to life. On time and within budget.

Ceiling Elements

The Venetian

Garfield, NJ
The compound curves and the intricate details that was the vision of the designer and owner posed many challenges on this project.  The medallions were eight feet in diameter and had to be created out of lightweight material for ease of installation as well at load restrictions in the ceiling construction. Repeating scrolling details lined each side of the ceiling as well as a ribbed cornice detail that criss-crossed the curved ceiling. From concept to completion SPI once again delivered solutions to complete this project on time and within budget.

Decorative Exterior Panels

Standard Restaurant

Albany, NY

Manufactured in our Acrythane Composite System, these decorative exterior panels were designed and created to retrofit an existing space for the new Standard Restaurant at Cross Gates Mall, Albany, NY. Each panel is 22′ long by 6′ wide and were manufactured in two sections and installed in less than a day. The brushed metal trim around the perimeter was utilized to hide all the mechanical fasteners.The versatility of the ACS allowed the designer to determine all the undulations of the panels as well as branding one of the panels with the restaurants Martini logo.

Jingle Bells…Jingle Bells

When FAO Schwarz wanted to create giant “Jingle Balls” we were up to the challenge. Hanging above the sales floor at various heights and sizes this was a installation and engineering challenge. 3ft, 4ft, 5ft diameter balls were transformed to look like giant balloons with a bell motif.
