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.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
