[Eventscape Inc.] Toronto, Ont., Canada
Eventscape Inc. designed an aluminum-framed, undulating textile ribbon and several framed, textile ceiling panels, wall panels and light boxes for a client that requested a playful, creative office environment. The sinuous atrium ribbon was originally conceived as a metal element, but because the form was so complex to build, it would have required expensive tooling. Eventscape suggested the textile and frame option as a cost-effective solution. An open railing system on adjacent walls was devised to hang the ribbon and for fastening lighting. At both ends of the ribbon, curved aluminum sheet metal, powder-coated to match the textile, transitions into a metal bench. The ceiling panels of framed textile incorporated both cove lighting and down lights. For the central two light fixtures, a sheet metal light baffle was engineered, essentially creating a six-sided, frameless, luminous fabric light box.
