It’s important for spaces to create an environment that adopts creativity and innovation. There is a need for creative solutions in shared environments so when working with decorative metal, it allows designers the freedom to create spaces in an attractive yet functional way. Here, Jonathan Reed, Managing Director at Amron Architectural explains how metal architectural drapery can contribute to this solution for interior design.
Metal architectural drapery solutions have limitless applications – not only are they versatile, but they also provide unparalleled design functionality. These aluminium chains are fully customisable to cover every space and ambient needed on a project. You can enhance a ceiling, façade, space dividers, curtains or even create a standalone piece of art! They give you the freedom to create inspiring spaces, in different colours or even with a custom image.
All Systems Go!
Made from highly sustainable aluminium thread and then transformed into small chain links with innovative technology, the chains then go through a special anodising treatment. This is specially designed for the chains, which gives them improved robustness and offers high colour resistance against climatic factors, wears, and rusting.
From elegant waves to parallel structures to amazing artistic figures and volumes, these aluminium chains can be developed into ceiling solutions. The solutions have limitless applications – not only are they versatile, but they also provide unparalleled design functionality. They are fully customisable to cover every space and ambient needed on a project. As well as a ceiling, you can enhance a façade, space dividers, curtains or even create a standalone piece of art. They give you the freedom to create inspiring spaces, in different colours or even with a custom image.
Product in practice
Located within a historic building that was once a steelworks factory, Hedinn Kitchen & Bar pays homage to the building’s heritage with its name and design elements. This stunning restaurant situated in Reykjavik, Iceland has been redesigned and converted into a hotel, restaurant, café, and bar and is said to be one of the largest in the area.
As a sister restaurant to leading Centre Hotels group, Hedinn Kitchen & Bar aims to be the most vibrant and memorable restaurant whilst providing a sense of warmth, energy, and atmosphere to those who visit.
Upon walking into the restaurant, you’re transported into a montage of big city life that replicates the industrial past of London, Paris, and New York. The dramatic high ceilings and swanky design features create an outstanding and eye-catching look. A volcanic map of Iceland is cut-out across the flooring and printed on the feature wall, and the dusky teal and blue-grey mural complete the overall design aesthetic.
Featuring a mezzanine layout, the entrance to the local café is via the street entrance which transforms into a casual wine bar in the evening. The lower floor opens up on the kitchen and bar dining area. The mezzanine design incorporates private function rooms that act as flexi-meeting areas, private dining, and venues for hire.
The possibilities are truly endless for how to utilise the chains in and around the interiors of a space. There is nothing that cannot be done; you just have to find the way!
