Multiple uses, materials and styles for a cube pedestal
Talk about putting someone on a pedestal. That is what Xylem Design does, building and designing customized types of pedestals made from different materials. They’re small and large, little and tall, rectangular and cube pedestals. Different cube pedestals, like others, will highlight a display in different ways depending on what is being put on the pedestal, how lighting is being used and what features want to be accentuated.
Early this year, Razer debuted its Ouroborus computer mouse. An ouroborus is a mystical creature like a snake or dragon that devours its tail. According to Wikipedia: it “symbolizes self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself.” In that sense, the Ouroborus mouse is recreating the mouse, which is flexible and kind of winds around. What does this have to do with a cube pedestal? Well, the Ouroborus mouse is displayed on a pedestal upon an acrylic cube pedestal.
Writes BenchmarkReviews.com: “As always, the Razer packaging is designed to impress. There is not a box to speak of in the traditional sense, rather a transparent acrylic cube with the Ouroboros suspended on a pedestal within. While I can understand and appreciate the effort put in to displaying such a unique (and arguably expensive) product, there’s a tiny part of my brain that wonders how much of the MSRP is in the presentation. I can’t argue with the end result – one can’t help but feel they’ve gotten their money’s worth before they even use the product.”
The mouse sits tight in the pedestal but it is simple to remove the Ouroboros from the pedestal and the wireless dock is within the acrylic pedestal. In this case, the pedestal was used as a selling point. We know in sales and marketing, presentation and packaging are key elements.
Xylem offers enough cube pedestal choices that would leave Picasso buggy eyed. A black or white laminate with color matching edges are currently 25% off. There are several options in lighted cubes that highlight glass and relief sculpture. They include black, white laminate, walnut veneer, ebonized walnut veneer, brushed aluminum laminate, antique topaz, granite laminate, black star granite laminate, black star laminate, sandy topaz, cherry veneer, maple veneer, oak veneer, and mahogany dyed wood veneer.
The lighted oak veneer, oak, black star granite laminate, and granite laminate pedestals are recommended for hotel lobbies, coffee shops, and waiting rooms. Lighted brushed aluminum laminate, sandy topaz laminate, maple wood veneer, antique topaz laminate, mahogany dyed wood veneer, and granite laminate are versatile enough to be used in different settings.
