HASSELL used gold mirror finishes to emphasise the qualities of the product on display, a utilitarian yet sophisticated woven wire mesh. The stand's rear walls were clad in a gold-coloured film, creating dramatic reflections. Overhead, several enormous mesh panels were suspended from the ceiling.

Since gold suggests quality, by association, Cascade Coil was given an aspirational appeal."—
