According to famed fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, "Luxury is in each detail," and clearly our judging panel agreed, calling this 30-by-40-foot island for ECI Software Solutions Inc. "refined," "well balanced," and "subtle yet effective." Designed and fabricated by Skyline Exhibits LLC using its own components, the stand, which debuted at the International Builders' Show, invokes the feel of a modern home via its angled rooflines, contemporary dark wood and faux concrete finishes, and restrained color palette.

Individual stations in the center of the footprint highlighted ECI's subbrands while keeping the overall aesthetic as focused as a laser beam, and a double-deck structure at the back created ample meeting space and a presentation theater. But the exhibit's crowning glory was the striking blood-red tree positioned near the aisle. The arboreal element functioned not only as a dramatic pop of color and an artful nod to the crimson tittle in ECI's logo, but also as an undeniable attention-getter that captivated scores of passersby.
