Here at Surface Inc we were really excited to hear about the use of translucent wood in the Wright Restaurant at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
Designed by Andre Kikoski Architects in collaboration with artist Liam Gillick, the 1,600 square foot space features a metalwork and Corian bar, illuminated planes of woven texture and a magnificent, curvilinear bar of walnut Luminoso.
Ombrae system creator, Roderick Quin has expanded the already astounding versatility of this revolutionary surface design material by introducing Cor-Ten steel to the portfolio of substrates.
Standard Ombrae panels have been available for some time in aluminium, the first commercially available material for the Ombrae optical tiling system. The development of Cor-Ten steel panels expands the potential applications to very large scale buildings or projects where the specific qualities of Cor-Ten are preferable to aluminium.
Available in pixel sizes of 35mm, 50mm and 100mm, the Cor-Ten version also allows architects and designers to work on larger scale images or to mix and match the pixel sizes to add extra complexity to their designs.
