What would the approaching festive season be without #poinsettia? The leaves of the popular house plant will soon be flaunting their glorious colors again in many living rooms.
And what would poinsettia be without #PLEXIGLAS®?
http://bit.ly/2goPZdp Because many greenhouses, like this one from the #gardening company Achim Holzem, are made of PLEXIGLAS® Alltop. The branded acrylic is particularly weather resistant, does not yellow, and so ensures plentiful light and therefore optimal growth conditions. And because PLEXIGLAS® Alltop sheets are also particularly #UV-transparent, they make the plants robust and ensure intense coloration—so that the poinsettia will brighten up your living room for weeks to come.

An ultramodern soccer stadium—with a facade made entirely of PLEXIGLAS®?
http://bit.ly/2fjqIju Welcome to the #Akwa-Ibom-Stadium, home of #Nigeria's national football team. This striking sports complex presents a distinctive appearance with its branded acrylic facade decorated with milled tracery. Inside, up to 30,000 fans, surrounded by several thousand light-transparent #PLEXIGLAS® panels, cheer on their Super Eagles. And this extremely robust and scratch-resistant facade made of original PLEXIGLAS® acrylic sheets naturally takes the odd ball hit in its stride. In such a splendid stadium you can only ever win.

You know the sensation: You walk into a room—and the ceiling seems to reach up to the moon. Employees of the global market leader in mining equipment can enjoy that feeling every day.

And the high-ceilinged spaces of the company's headquarters are further enhanced by wall sections made of original #PLEXIGLAS®. These are also ideally suited for creating a calm, tranquil atmosphere: The velvety surface of the robust branded acrylic softens the light from the recessed LED luminaires, bathing the space in a warm glow. In addition to the classic ceiling lamps, the light walls provide powerful #illumination reaching into all nooks and crannies of the high space. The feel is as bright and spacious as it must be on the moon—or at least in a spaceship with very high ceilings.

How #SV #Darmstadt made it into the #Bundesliga reads like a fairytale, one of the key figures in that story being team captain Aytac Sulu. And the designer from Darmstadt's Workshop #Luther has now created a #portrait of Sulu that is equally magical. Milled from original #PLEXIGLAS®, it achieves its effect through a combination of depth and illumination. The impression of the portrait is created exclusively by lines milled to a precision of a millimeter. "PLEXIGLAS® was the ideal material here," says the artist—just as Sulu was the ideal captain for those wonder years for Darmstadt. The portrait was then raffled off to fans to raise money—for a film on the football fable.

Let there be light! When the days get shorter, it is all the more important to keep the inside bright.
PLEXIGLAS® can help.
http://bit.ly/2eKIlvL Take the example of the #Alteme ceiling light: Unmistakable, yet unobtrusive, its slim body illuminates the room with radiant brightness. Alteme is in fact used worldwide, including in public buildings such as hospitals, offices, or banks. Look around; you may discover Alteme lights in familiar places around you. The popular luminaire owes its high efficiency to #PLEXIGLAS®, a material that distributes light particularly evenly.

Too bad fall is simply too cold for open-air concerts. Those who want to enjoy music have to stay inside. However, they can also visit Franz #Liszt #Concert Hall in Austria, where one side of the #lobby is made completely from original #PLEXIGLAS®.
http://bit.ly/2drVCVi
It not only brings light into the concert hall, but also makes the audience feel as if it was standing right in the adjacent park. This was possible because the material is ideally suited for creating windows in these large dimensions: The panel is 17 meters long. In addition, the trademark acrylic glass will not turn yellow over the years, and always remains transparent. So, visit the concert hall and enjoy the park from your warm and cozy seat. And listen to music.

There is no denying it, the days are getting shorter. Decorative candle arches appear in windows, particularly in the #Erzgebirge. They are traditionally made of wood, but there are other approaches as well.
http://bit.ly/2eiCEWO
The lighting manufacturer Günter Gläser, for example, uses original #PLEXIGLAS® to create candle arches. Thanks to its high #luminosity, the material makes the scenarios even more radiant. The special light #transmittance opens up completely new possibilities: How about an African safari or a trip to New York? These ideas come to life with PLEXIGLAS® because the trademark acrylic is also easy to process, turning a German October sunset in into a sunset in the African Savannah!

Shorter days, cooler weather: welcome to #fall! Your office is comfortably warm, you say? That's probably due to effective #heating. It’s even better, of course, if the heater–or at least the room #thermostat– is also a real eye-catcher.
For example, made from #PLEXIGLAS®. http://bit.ly/2dUcGVA
Like this one, made from PLEXIGLAS® #Optical #HC. Its high-quality design is so brilliant to handle you will want to adjust the temperature all the time. No wonder the trademark acrylic glass, which can be so easily turned into visually refined products, is so popular among designers.

The #NDR state radio station in Lower Saxony had a problem for a long time: Its "large broadcast hall" had very poor acoustics because the ceiling and other structures absorbed sound and volume - not a good match.
http://bit.ly/2bXYU84
A few years ago, #acoustic sails made from original #PLEXIGLAS® were installed. These not only reflect the music to make it a real sound experience, but they also radiate in a myriad of colors via the installed #LED lights. Since then, music events in the large broadcast hall have become a feast for all senses.

Evonik cooperates with AAT to build large aquariums - Forward integration for large aquariums made of PLEXIGLAS® acrylic glass.
www.aatacrylics.com
#AAT (Advanced Aquarium Technologies), a systems provider for large aquariums, will produce #PLEXIGLAS® acrylic glass in Guangdong (China) and exclusively incorporate it into its system.
#Evonik already supplies PLEXIGLAS® blocks to manufactures of #aquariums. The cooperation between Evonik and AAT makes the utilization of large panoramic glazing for aquariums possible for the first time. AAT will start the licensed production under the company name AAT Acrylics on a state-of-the-art production site that was exclusively designed for this purpose.
