Plantation Shutters thrive on the latest trends and have a habit of remaining a step ahead, so when they needed to build a new exhibition stand, they put their heads together to create something completely unique.
With their love for interacting with homeowners, designers and architects at the many expos held around South Africa every year, it’s always top of mind to find innovative ways to showcase their premium shutters, but it wasn’t until they met Herman and Clifford Hoffman of Container Rental and Sales that their dream became a reality.
Under the guidance of Sam Lurie from Sprout Design, Plantation Shutters designed a trendy, funky and utterly gorgeous pod from a re-purposed utilitarian high-cube shipping container that’s 6m long, 2.4m wide and extra tall at 2.89m.
“This is something we have wanted to do for a long time,” says Briggie Kirchmann, Marketing Director of Plantation Shutters. “We are fortunate to have creative professionals work with us on exciting projects like this. Although rooted in the most meticulous manufacturing standards, our brand is all about being on-trend and topical. Container Rental and Sales have worked on really interesting projects from the WOOF dog-adoption container, to the “Pigcasso the Painting Pig” art gallery container, to computer labs in Africa, to mountainside holiday pods. The possibilities are endless!”
