Seeyond Installs Five Cellular Resin Ceiling Clouds in Client HQ Renovation

A Second Column Wrap Installation Also Accents the New Employee Space

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - Seeyond® Architectural Solutions recently installed five cellular resin ceiling clouds in a major corporate-headquarter renovation project in Chicago, IL. The clouds, which are located in the technology group work area, feature Twist tessellation and an undulating bow-tie shape. Each cloud element ranges from 4' - 7' wide and is 18' long. Every module in all five cloud installations includes dual 12" LED lights that are remote controlled and programmable, with the ability to change through the entire RGB spectrum of color that changes based on the occasion -- orange for Halloween; pink for breast cancer month; or red, white and blue for the 4th of July.

This same renovation project also includes a Seeyond cellular resin column wrap, which conceals an existing structural column. The column element features Twist tessellation along with dual 6" LED lights that are remote controlled and programmable. The column wrap stands 9' tall and flares out at its widest point to 6' in diameter.

"Seeyond offered the dramatic lighting effect we were pursuing within a customizable and flexible system," said Matt Churchill, project designer with Whitney Architects. "The entire process was cohesive, from the real-time online design sessions, to the final installation. The feedback our client received from their employees and the responses we've heard exceeded our expectations. We'll definitely use Seeyond again."

A Seeyond design team worked directly with the architectural firm, the general contractor, and their client to ensure success from the initial touch point -- a Seeyond online design session -- through to the final project installation and closeout. In this case, the architectural firm was Whitney Architects in Oak Brook, IL and the general contractor was Turner Construction.

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, columns, and transitions -- including office walls and partitions, mobile walls, lobby features, reception areas, work spaces, and media wall 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 offers two distinct paths to installing a specialty feature: Seeyond Select features mobile walls designed as a system. Each wall can be moved by anyone at anytime. At a moment's notice. Seeyond Design features walls, facings, clouds, enclosures, columns, and transitions, all designed to specification.

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.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
