Forget Texas, they do things bigger in Dubai! I saw what they call ‘The Creek’ in Dubai when I was there consulting with Al Arabiya, it reminded me of a sizable river feeding into an ocean, well the Gulf of Arabia.
I saw this post about the Kirkless Hotel in Dubai today. They have quite the multi-story metal scrim in the lobby/atrium. Metal scrim is a chain product and there are several manufacturers. In this case the product is by KriskaDecor.
We love the openness of the product AND the ability to create discrete areas within a large location. Perfect for many applications. Great for Lighting Designers, provides a wonderful playground of light and allows flexible visibility, just like scrim on stage.
Cascade Coil and Whiting & Davis make similar products. Our fireplace screens in the studio are metal fabric, simple, elegant and functional. In large loft spaces, these materials are excellent choices for dividers. In exhibit design, scrims can make a partially closed environment feel friendly, open and welcoming to guests. Some of the tighter weaves can be used as accent elements. Nice and reflective. Shiney is almost always good.
Perfect always for nightclubs and retail.
While this product is not new or unused by KLAD, it is always good to see a dramatic use.
Sorry, Kriska, no link to the annoying Flash based site.
