Chamberlain Group Showroom

The CGI Visitor Showroom was designed to complement the unique lens shape of the entry corridor. Three Kiosks mimicking the room’s curvature – spanning floor to ceiling – showcase Chamberlain’s company values through transparent graphics and display screens.

These kiosks were strategically placed to give an unobstructed view to the 50-foot curved niche wall. In the niche you can interact with the current product line showcased on custom, clear acrylic shelves suspended by a stainless-steel rod and clamp system. The niche is backlit giving the display a halo effect. High-gloss modern finishes were chosen throughout – tipping a stylistic nod to the automotive industry.

Rotary International

A multi-phased project was completed for Rotary International at its headquarters in Evanston, IL. This collaborative effort between Xibitz, Peter Hyde Design, and Angle Park creates a narrative that speaks to all visitors with intentionality.  

Upon walking up to the building, visitors observe vertical messages developed on vinyl displaying the core values of Rotary. As you enter the building, guests are greeted through the Rotary In Action Portal, a curved, interactive that introduces visitors to the space. The largest component of this project features a large fabricated sphere, representing the Earth. The sphere is best experienced from the interior, with wall graphics that display the people Rotary has impacted through it’s work. The sphere, fabricated from unique materials such as bamboo veneer on flat surfaces and a brushed chem-metal applied to narrower faces. The intended message with the design is meant to inspire visitors to do good in the world.

Final exhibit features installed at Flint Museum

FLINT — Wyoming-based architectural fabricator Xibitz Inc. has been working in partnership with Sloan Museum of Discovery over the last three years to bring the museum’s brand-new exhibits to life, with the final piece being installed last week. This work includes the Discovery Hall Gallery, Hagerman Street Early Childhood Gallery, the History Gallery and the Durant Vehicle Galler


A final piece of the installation included an interactive automobile assembly line showcasing the deep history of the auto industry and allowing visitors to participate in the car assembly process. Installing this piece marks the end of a multi-year journey in enhancing the museum’s exhibits that tell the story and history of the city of Flint.

“Xibitz was honored to be selected as the trusted partner for the museum,” said Ben Metzger, principal at Xibitz. “It has been an incredible journey to watch this project develop from ideas and concepts to complete galleries that tell the story of Flint in ways for the whole family to enjoy.”

Other elements of Xibitz’ hands-on installations include multiple interactive experiences such as the 3-D Periodic table with a touchscreen kiosk in Sloan’s Discovery Hall Gallery. Visitors select which compound they would like to produce and drag the elements into the touch-screen beaker. Upon adding all elements, the periodic table lights-up with all of the elements to produce the final product.

Hagerman Street Early Childhood Gallery features an interactive ambulance, with lights, sirens, warning systems and a large flat screen integrated into the design. Also in this space is a three-story climbing experience in the form of a treehouse with multiple “peek-a-boo” boxes on each floor. The Market uses AV-integration to accomplish an interactive shopping experience that allows visitors to select different drinks.

The History Gallery features an AV system installed by Xibitz that is triggered by a visitor walking onto the “Story Stones” placed along the floor. As guests walk into the gallery, they are taken on a journey through the history of the city, guided by a carpet design representing the Flint River.

“The teamwork and support Xibitz provided to bring our vision to life was phenomenal,” said Amy Walker, exhibit coordinator at Sloan Museum of Discovery. “Xibitz brought 100 percent to the Sloan Museum of Discovery project, and I look forward to creating future projects together.”

Xibitz partnered with Cambridge Seven, Peter Hyde Design, Blue Telescope, and Electrosonic to design and fabricate the new galleries at the Sloan Museum of Discovery. — B.G
