Bercy Chen believes a material should be true to its nature, even when it’s manmade. One of the firm’s favorites—seen here in a recent project—is acrylic sheeting. “In the spirit of Louis Kahn, the engineered material is especially effective at creating spatial definition between served and serving spaces,” Chen says. The firm’s supplier of choice, Regal Plastics, offers them in a variety of colors, sizes, and textures. Regal Plastics, 800.441.1553; www.regal-plastics.com.
