Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has shared photos of Dichroic filter materials that will be used in the store.
Color brings life to design. And bold use of primary colors is a defining feature of Epcot.
When looking for color inspiration for the new Creations Shop coming to EPCOT this summer, the Imagineering design team felt it was important to keep the overall space classic and timeless, allowing the mural program and the fantastic merchandise to be the star of the show. Our materials are warm, inviting and precise. But precise doesn’t mean boring. We searched for a way to add calculated pops of color to play on the shop’s themes of creativity and self-expression.
We couldn’t select just one color – we wanted the full spectrum! As we studied samples, we fell in love with dichroic materials that change as light and people move in and through the space. Today, I’m sharing a first-look at our dichroic resin material fixtures that arrived yesterday. As you can see, they are translucent and color-changing. We plan to use this as accents throughout the shop, adding a dynamic feel to our specialty display fixture and differentiate EPCOT from any other shop across Walt Disney World.
