Congratulations to ShellShock Designs, winner of the Wallcovering Award in The International Product Design Awards 2014

ShellShock Designs successfully won the Wallcovering award in the International Product Design Awards 2014.

The Galaxy Hotel offers luxurious 5-star accommodation within the Galaxy Macau Resort, across Macau’s ‘Old Taipa Village’. ShellShock Designs’ Faux Alabaster is used in many locations across the hotel. The examples shown are an elaborate wall decoration of a supporting pillar extending down to a trendy bar front. Examples of the Faux Alabaster can also be seen as simple dividers that have been back lit, rendering them as features that add to the overall luxury of the hotel.


The key aspect of the project is the diverse and extensive use of this product in many areas with different effects and impressions created. Using back lighting can create a plethora of different moods, shades and tones. The elegant rounded edges and swirls are easy on the eyes of the guests and adds depth to the rooms.


Faux Alabaster is a decorative stone made up from AL(OH)3 and polyester resin. This is what creates its semi-transparency (great for lighting) and means that it can be formed in any shape and size.
