Plexiglass Pulpit

Plexiglass Pulpit = Traditional?

 

It may seem strange, but what may have been new in the past has now become 'traditional' or 'older style'.

So it is with the plexiglass pulpit. These were particularly popular 15-20 years ago. They were generally produced by manufacturers of acrylic products. These firms made things like brochure holders, clear cases for models, and signage. It fitted well within their expertise and abilities. The plexiglass pulpit was ideal for the established church that didn't need to move it often and kept it permanently towards the side of the stage (out of the way of praise and worship). Over time however the weight and impractical nature of all-plexiglass pulpits meant that they became less popular.

Pastors have also moved with the time. They have been transitioning from wooden pulpits which they could effectively hide behind, to the transparent plexiglass pulpit, allowing a more transparent feel to the preaching. The single stem minimalist (no hiding possible) pulpit like the Arc2 has been a natural progression of the lessening barrier between preacher and congregation.

So the style of modern sanctuaries at the leading edge has moved on. There is still however some demand for lecterns like the plexiglass pulpit, much like there will always be demand for wooden pulpits. Pastors however realised the shortcomings of them (the weight, brittle joints and for some churches the tendency to reflect light in all directions like a prism.)

Increasingly injury aware society, a lightweight lectern instead of a heavy plexiglass pulpit can be a better choice.
