During the summer break 2009, the popular Chicago WTTW PBS restaurant review show “Check Please !” received a brand-new set for the 2010 season. Furniture and accessories from Crate & Barrel as well as many realistic props create the impression of a functioning restaurant when host Alpana Singh talks with three guests (people from “all walks of life”) about their restaurant recommendations.
But something was missing only days from the start of taping of the new season: the appropriate wall-art a modern restaurant would have on display. Chicago based professional photographer Michael Roberts provided the perfect digital images, but they still had to be converted into impressive wall art pieces.
We helped out and created four gorgeous 30″x20″ fotoflōts. Michael Roberts’ images now float off of the studio wall and create a stunning display.
The camera folks were probably very happy since fotoflōt eliminates the glare and reflection they usually have to fight when images in traditional frames with glass are on the wall.
