Seeyond Introduces Second of Three New Dramatic Ceiling Clouds

An Elegant Suspended Cloud Makes Its Debut While Showcasing Many Advantages, Particularly Its Unparalleled Strength-to-Weight Ratio

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - July 23, 2013) - Seeyond™ Architectural Solutions recently installed the second in a series of new ceiling clouds -- a suspended cloud in the lobby area of a tropical resort in the Caribbean. The resort wanted a dramatic lobby experience for their guests as they entered the property -- an experience that reflected the flow of the Caribbean waters. Their A&D firm, DSI Hospitality in Miami worked with Seeyond to deliver on those expectations. "The new Seeyond ceiling cloud is incredibly theatrical," said Clive Booker, President at DSI. "Everyone finds it to be very cool, new and enlightening. It's a very cost-effective approach for a very challenging space. We enjoyed the truly turnkey nature of the Seeyond solution starting with the highly interactive design phase and working all the way through to installation. The team was great and so is the product. We can't wait to use it again in another project."

Seeyond Ceiling Cloud Advantages

Seeyond ceiling installations offer a number of distinct advantages to alternative approaches for ceiling treatments: 1. The cellular resin material used in Seeyond clouds has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio with a one-pound-per-square-foot weight. 2. The Seeyond cloud solution can accommodate any existing substrates and infrastructure, including installed life-safety equipment. 3. The tessellated nature of the Seeyond cloud features allows for easy removal of any of the modules for instant maintenance access to what lies above. 4. Every Seeyond installation features hidden hardware thereby delivering a clean and elegant tessellated aesthetic. 5. Every Seeyond specialty feature is created with the opportunity for infinite customization and complete flexibility throughout the design process.

Further, the Seeyond solution proves to be an ideal approach for efficiently creating organic shape and complex form. Ceilings in particular are generating significant interest and gaining sales traction, likely due to both their dramatic aesthetic and their efficient functionality. "The many distinct advantages of a Seeyond ceiling cloud create a compelling case," said Kirby Rea, general manager at Seeyond. "Because no additional infrastructure is required for installation (every Seeyond feature is self-structuring), our cloud solution is incredibly appealing to architects and designers. It's an easy way through a what is often a complex situation -- a situation that involves working around existing structures and critical equipment."
