MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - February 18, 2014) - Seeyond® Architectural Solutions recently installed a unique wall facing in the long corridor adjacent to the lobby of a new multi-use retail and residential property in downtown Minneapolis called 222 Hennepin. The Seeyond wall treatment features damask-patterned sub-surface printing and remote-controlled programmable LED lighting within a tessellated structure made of cellular resin modules.
"We were looking for a feature to fit a 40-foot-long wall with only a 10-foot ceiling height," said Chris Culp, president of The Excelsior Group, which owns the property. "We wanted something unique and dramatic. When we saw the Seeyond features online in their website gallery, we had our answer. We created a patterned, printed, lighted, colorful public art piece, which is visible from outside where there is high traffic. The flexibility of the solution is a great attribute: we can rotate color or keep it static; we can replace modules if they're damaged; we can even change out the entire design at a reasonable cost. The Seeyond wall facing is the perfect fit."
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.
Seeyond Architectural Solutions was first introduced at NeoCon in 2011. At its launch, Seeyond won a Gold Award in the Best of NeoCon competition's Architectural Products category. Seeyond also won a prestigious Innovation Award in the same competition, which was sponsored by Contract magazine. In 2012, Seeyond took a Silver Award for its new movable walls in the Best of NeoCon competition. And in 2013, Seeyond received a Gold Award for collaboration-space movable walls and a Silver Award for decorative lighting. Seeyond also has been a finalist or honoree in both the 2012 and 2013 Interior Design Best of Year Awards.
Typical market segments for Seeyond include hospitality, office, and retail environments. The average time from design through installation for custom features is two to three months. Since introduction, Seeyond has installed more than 50 unique specialty features throughout the U.S. Their pipeline continues to be filled with projects destined for well-known airports and offices, resorts and hospitals, stores and co-working spaces, restaurants and casinos.
Seeyond® Architectural Solutions is a member of the Liberty Diversified International (LDI) family of companies. Specifically, it resides within the LDI Spaces business group. LDI Spaces also includes Seeyond sister companies Safco and Patrician, both operating in the contract-furniture industry.

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
