MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - Seeyond(R) Architectural Solutions recently installed a series of five cellular resin column wraps in an upscale gallery space that serves to showcase residential properties for the Abu Dhabi Housing Authority. The column wraps hide five existing structural columns in the showcase space and deliver an iconic look designed to elegantly accent this large-format architectural environment.
Each of these unique column wraps features a combination of Quad and Twist tessellation which results in a dramatic design that twists its way up the column. The columns are 9.5 feet high and 4.5 feet wide at their largest diameter.
Seeyond® Architectural Solutions delivers a comprehensive approach that integrates the design, manufacturing and installation of architectural specialty features -- walls, wall facings, ceiling clouds, enclosures, and columns -- including office walls and partitions, mobile walls, lobby features, reception areas, work spaces, and wall-to-ceiling transitions. Their proprietary system provides total control of the outcome and an empowered sense of risk-free design freedom for commercial architects and designers.
Seeyond is driven by parametric-design software called the Tess™ Specification Tool, which is patent pending. The Seeyond solution proves to be an ideal approach for efficiently creating organic shape and complex form for self-structuring specialty features. Designers can access Tess through custom one-on-one online design sessions with Seeyond.
Seeyond offers two distinct paths to installing a specialty feature: Seeyond Select is a line of pre-designed features that are ready to ship; Seeyond Design offers an infinite range of features that are custom designed to specification.
