The Showcase Cinema de Lux is a folded freedom shape clad in a shiny silver metal sheet which implemented the light and rich texture metal to form a shiny, illusionary façade. The gloss metal sheet of Showcase Cinema de Lux is largely affected by the light as the reflective characteristic of the material. The mirror effect can appear and turn the colours in very different ways depended on the changing climate and light conditions. On a sunny day it may reflect the blue colour of the sky, whereas with a cloudy weather, the façade can be seen as off white. The colour names such as silver, grey, and white are unable to provide a comprehensive description about the colour characteristics of the materials.
