Fabrix™ is a fabric system that uses proprietary polymer tracks to construct acoustic panels.
The curved ceiling was inspired by Hokusai’s famous wood-block print, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”.
Fabrix™ ML27S (Mid Load, 27mm Height, Square Profile) was used to form three-dimensionally curved surfaces, to emulate the undulating tidal surface of the ocean waves. The fabric tracks have a small gap cut intermittently cross-wise, to allow them to flex to the correct curvature. The panels can be made to simulate complex topographies such as convex, concave, and saddle point surfaces.
