090309_MF @SOM(NY) | POLY-FACETS Ceiling (DD)

*

*

Few images of a entrance hall project developed for a famous high end hotel brand in Bahrain.

The design is pretty simple and mainly relies on a dramatic “weaved” ceiling: its overall surface geometry – symmetric – is responding to two grand staircases; it is “dressed” through similar tiling (non repetitive) based on a simple mix between a honeycomb pattern and a faceted diamond shape.

1.6m x 1.6m mock up (1:1) – Fabrication Milgo/Bufkin, Brooklyn, NYC
The sample panel was fabricated from 8 continuous folded strips, laser cut from flat sheets (1/16″ thick stainless steel) and welded together (the overall weights around 90 kilos!)

*

Originally thought as golden anodized aluminum it was finally replaced with a metallic golden lacquer finish apply once assembled mainly to avoid the maximum of scratches due to processing (laser cut, folding, etc…)

note: many thanks to Lucios Santos for the photos!
