Seeyond Installs Two-Story Lighted Media Wall in Manhattan

This Impressive Feature Includes Remote-Controlled Programmable LED Lighting in Each Module, Making for a Dramatic Welcome for Guests of This Remodeled Office Space

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - October 21, 2014) - Seeyond® Architectural Solutions recently installed a two-story lighted media wall in the main lobby of a corporate headquarters in Manhattan. The media wall is made of proprietary engineered cellular resin and features a Kink tessellation pattern, along with a custom fenestration for 12 digital monitors. Seeyond specialty features are designed to precisely fit any unique customer environment and final products are fabricated within a 1/16th inch specification. This particular freestanding lighted media wall measures 20' high and 25' wide.

The two-story lighted media wall commands attention and complements the other elements in the environment including the lighting fixtures and reception desk. The turnkey Seeyond approach featured an elegant online design process and an essentially flawless installation. Most importantly in this case, the design firm's client environment was a broadcast facility that was highly sensitive to any disturbance. Seeyond proved invaluable in this regard because there was no disruption and virtually no mess or cleanup.

"We were looking for something new -- something on the forefront of design -- to freshen the main lobby area of this corporate headquarter space," said Jacob Dale, project architect with Kostow Greenwood Architects. "We wanted new concepts and new materials, yet a solution that would work for the next 15 years. Seeyond did the space justice with their combined product solution and their easy process."
