Seeyond Installs Solid Resin Column Wrap in Pediatrics Center

A Second Ceiling Cloud Installation Lights Up a Wellness Corridor

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - January 21, 2014) - Seeyond® Architectural Solutions recently installed two complementary specialty features in a new pediatrics center on the east coast. A lighted column wrap conceals an existing structural column in the reception area and a lighted ceiling cloud accents a long wellness corridor. The column is made of solid resin and the ceiling cloud is made of cellular resin. Both installations feature Twist tessellation and include programmable remote controlled LED lighting that changes color.

The design firm, Steffian Bradley Architects, determined Seeyond would be an ideal choice for the new space, particularly because of the custom nature of the solution and the feature's ability to change colors with the programmable lighting package. "We had been looking for some sort of signature architectural expression for this children's space and when we saw the capabilities of the Seeyond solution, we knew it was perfect," said Derek Noble, principal, Steffian Bradley Architects. "The features themselves are invaluable. There's nothing else we could have used that would have given us as much visual impact. So it was worth every penny and the client loves it."

About Seeyond

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.
