With lightweight core composites from Diab it was possible to create an eye-catching entrance for this spectacular condominium in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand.
Located in one of the most vibrant parts of Bangkok, Thailand, Diab explains that EDGE Sukhumvit 23 is the place for urbanites who like to live on the pulse of rhythmic beats. The ultra-modern condominium has 35 floors with apartments available for both sale and rent. Facilities include elevator, parking, 24-hours security, cctv, swimming pool, gym, garden with BBQ possibilities and wi-fi.
Built by Thai property developer, Sansiri, a company with over 200 projects across the country, EDGE Sukhumvit 23 is a premium complex that requires an outstanding interior. 3MB, which is a major player in industrial production of advanced composite parts in South-East Asia, was chosen for parts of the interior decorations. Since Diab is a long-term business partner, 3MB selected Divinycell core to design the lights for the lobby. Not only do they brighten the reception area, they also serve as an eye-catching decoration for this high-class condominium.
Diab explains that the Divinycell core was chosen to provide freedom of form with superior strength. It was also important that the material could be quickly and easily processed. Together with local help and engineering support from Diab’s team it was possible to create this lightweight composite application. Although there was a bit of a struggle to put all the parts together – since each custom-designed shape was fairly large and therefore required some space for assembly – it was made possible thanks to the lightness of the material. Sansiri and the residents of EDGE Sukhumvit 23 are happy with the bright and modern-looking entrance of their building.
