Ceiling the Deal

The late famous American designer Albert Hadley said, “Ceilings must always be considered. They are the most neglected surface in a room.” He said that well. 

The ceilings possess the same power as the sky for any natural landscape. They complement and elevate the design theme, offering noise absorption, light diffusion, creating enclosures and hiding certain parts of the roof, among other advantages. 

It’s time to break the ‘ceiling’ of what spaces can look and feel like, and hence we’ve curated ten ceiling solutions to assist you..

Look up, say WOW.

If you can imagine it, Kriskadecor can do it. Create wavy, concentric, round, parallel or straight forms and patterns on your ceiling that give the feeling of being transported to a land of your choice. Ceiling features can also recreate a rain-like effect with this design volume canvas or anything that comes to your mind using their architectural prowess. Made from 99% aluminium and 20% recycled material, you can create large, artistic ceiling solutions with Kriskadecor in a myriad of colours.

An acoustic island that builds a quiet oasis.

Built to be used on its own or for spaces where installing traditional suspended acoustic ceilings is not possible, this acoustical island by Rockfon provides high light reflection, light diffusion and anti-static properties. It has a smooth, deep-matt and super-white surface that can be customised in different shapes based on your needs. This minimalistic, frameless acoustic solution is easy to install. It comes in an unlimited custom colour range using NCS Quick, which means it can blend well and even add to your interiors.

Literally and figuratively cool.

Keep your ceilings chill without air-conditioning with this ceiling solution that looks no different than standard suspended ceilings. You can reduce costs and decrease your carbon footprint as it uses water and has a heat transfer medium through a single piece of copper element installed at the back of the ceiling tile. These can also be integrated into your existing metal ceilings and, along with Chilled Beams, can work wonders for all kinds of spaces, including glazed elevations.
