M&M's® Abound. The new M&M’S World® Shanghai, combines iconic Chinese landmarks and cultural elements with M&M’S® in a colorful and fun way. These animated LED lanterns, visible from the plaza of vibrant East Nanjing Road, serve a dual purpose: not only do they entice curious onlookers off the street and into the store, they're also the focal point of an amazing customer experience - the “Mood Analyzer”!
By stepping up on the platform facing a monitor, patrons initiate a sequence of multicolored light effects culminating in the M&M's® colors that best suits their current mood. The Analyzer indicates where to find the product in the store and sends them off with a fortune, making for sweet experience! Click on the picture to see it in action.
Mellow Yellow. There's no better goodwill ambassador for M&M World® Shanghai than Yellow, the most affable of the M&M's® characters. Here he is disguised as China's national treasure, dutifully posing with visitors in front of a setting of glowing bamboo stalks.
In addition to serving as an iconic backdrop for Yellow, the Illuminated, multi-colored bamboo trains the eye upwards to the second floor, where an another amazing customer experience awaits.
Role Model. Known as a diva among the M&M's® characters, Ms. Green loves to pose for the camera. Here she is in front of the new M&M's® World Shanghai sharing the spotlight with an admiring fan.

Candy Crush. We fabricated this colorful chandelier and candy displays for New Yaohan’s 35,000-square-feet flagship specialty store "Kid's Cavern", an over-the-top-children's store within the Sands Cotai Central in Macau, China. At roughly 20 feet in diameter at its widest point, the fixture serves as the focal point of the candy department.
Lots of Lollies
The chandelier is made up of hundreds of custom cast resin lollipops, faux ribbon candy and frosted globe lights suspended from an aluminum frame with a painted lollipop swirl finish. The “candy” vortex slowly rotates creating the illusion of a Swirl Lollipop being unwound into the acrylic candy bins below.
Kids' Couture. This fixture is the centerpiece for the Multi Shops area of New Yaohan’s Kids Cavern, a 35,000-square-feet flagship specialty store within the Sands Cotai Central in Macau, China. Located in this high end junior fashion salon, our display fixtures make spending your gambling winnings a breeze.
An international flair and vibrant atmosphere is what sets this high end junior fashion shop apart from the competition.
Blissful Boutique. The rounded interior, muted colors and cloud-like ceiling of the infants' department are a sharp contrast to the vibrant colors, rotating fixtures and over-the-top décor found in the rest of Kid's Cavern.
Not only is Kid's Cavern the ultimate playground for children, it captures the imagination of their wallet wielding parents, too. This innovative destination space raises the bar for all children’s stores in the retail market.
Mmm, mmm, good. Unlike real chocolate, the stuff dripping off the overhead cubbies and cleverly disguising the storage drawers below, is long lasting and easy-to-clean.
This chocolate-themed custom wall display looks good enough to eat, but the folks at Dylan's Candy Bar in Los Angeles would prefer that you refrain from doing so.
It's Sugar Free - We developed the design, fabricated and installed various brightly colored candy-themed elements for Dylan’s Candy Bar in Los Angeles.
A 10-ft. Lollipop Tree, oversized Dylan’s Candy Bar replicas and giant Gummi Bears are among the many fanciful custom-made items designed to adorn the 1,200-square-foot boutique, creating a candy lover’s fantasyland for kids and adults alike.
Let them eat cupcakes! - We built these candy themed furnishings for the newly renovated café and party room, located on the upper level of Dylan’s Candy Bar, New York, NY
The café features gigantic cupcake banquettes in pink, purple, yellow and blue, which seat private parties of eight to ten people. Smaller groups can sit at gumball-inspired tables, with coordinating chairs in marshmallow white.
Cute as a button. The exterior sign of this upscale sweet shop is adorned with colorful "candy" buttons we fabricated with vacuum-formed 6" diameter polycarbonate hemispheres with a long lasting automotive finish.
Buttons vs. Dots
You may remember these from your childhood when they were often called "dots", which is a misnomer. Dots are those the gum-drops in the yellow box we feel nostalgic for, but they always get stuck in your teeth.
Who's the Boss? - For the renovation of the Hugo Boss Soho store, we built this Map Wall depicting a grid of Manhattan streets.
Hugo, that’s who.
The bas relief map is made of two sections, one nearly 40 feet long x 14 feet tall and the other roughly half the size. The entire map wall is painted a neutral gray, with the exception of the area representing the Hugo Boss store which stands out in an eye-catching red.
Fashion Interaction - Dillon Works! developed the design, fabricated and installed this 10-foot tall by 3-foot square interactive glass column.
Column like you see 'em
The high tech display has motion-activated sensors to trigger movement in the nature-inspired images as shoppers pass by.
Traditional discipline - For the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade we created Reshiram and Zekrom – legendary characters featured in the new Pokémon Black & White game. These characters stand over 14 feet tall and score 680 each in base stat power points. Awesome!
Each half-ton float glides on a gas-powered utility vehicle hidden within the base. Also hidden are the drivers who are waving and smiling for this picture nonetheless.
“Glass” with class - We created these faux glass fixture panels and chandeliers for Nordstrom store nationwide. We made custom molds, and then cast them using translucent, tinted plastic.
Sure, it looks like glass. But seriously, it’s not. No one knows but you.
Art Deco Illuminated - We made this 6-ft. diameter chandelier for Macy*s West in San Francisco. The diffuser bowls were fabricated with vacu-formed polycarbonate and painted with a two-tone alabaster finish.
Alabaster? I hardly know 'er.
If you are perplexed and can't see the light, call us!
Bronze Marché - We fabricated and installed eight large-scale re-creations of bronze panels based on the work of a Northwest sculptor. The originals are 1-foot square and represent significant Northwest industries.
Cast from the past
The Bon Marché commissioned Dillon Works to create two new bronzes. Twenty panels were fabricated in bronze-powdered fiberglass, creating walls that measure 10-feet wide by 30-feet tall.
Jelly Belly, etc. - These two foot(ed) store displays lined up bags of business for Jelly Belly retailers.
WE MADE 100S OF ‘EM!
We eat more candy before 9 o’ clock than most Fortune 500 companies eat in a whole week.
Fun aside we take business pretty seriously. Seriously!
Talk About BUFF(ed)!
At nine feet tall and approximately 250 lbs., Big “E” weighs far less, and was delivered in half the time of a real cast bronze of similar stature.
Watch your spending - There are several markets for wristwatches, ranging from very inexpensive but accurate watches serving no other purpose than telling the correct time, to extremely expensive watches that serve as personal adornment or as examples of high achievement in miniaturization and precision mechanical engineering.
Pssst, hey buddy; wanna buy a watch?
Or, you can ask us to create a really huge watch that’s a functional work of art. That’s what Macy*s did.
The Thrill of Victory - This is a scale replica of the historic Dewey monument standing in Union Square across from Macy*s San Francisco. The sculpture has a metallic finish over fiberglass with an internal steel armature.
Not a trivial pursuit
The figurine at the top of the monument, "Victory", was modeled from the likeness of a local heiress, Alma de Bretteville Spreckels. Try saying THAT without spitting.
Wall of shoes - This translucent wall glows almost as much as the shoppers that’ve just come in from the casino floor.
Papa needs a new pair of shoes
Internal light fixtures create the glow; we created the cast resin wall. These 1” thick resin panels are over 11 feet tall. We have the know-how to determine the level of translucency required in the cast layer to know what’s required in the lights we design and install.
Watch this! - With internal illumination and a working clock motor, this watch actually keep time.
Does anybody really know what time it is?
A watch is a timepiece that is made to be worn on a person, as opposed to a clock which is not. The more you know...
Dress up - Marshall Field’s commissioned us to recreate a famous Norman Rockwell painting in full 3D to hang in front of their celebrated outdoor clock in Chicago.
Created using a custom mannequin dressed in real clothes then coated with fiberglass resin, the sculpture was painted in Norman Rockwell's style to match the original masterpiece.
