Award Winning Restaurant Chooses Banker Architectural
Chaya Downtown in Los Angeles, California recently won the 2009 Restaurant Design Awards presented by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Banker's S-16 architectural woven wire mesh was chosen for use as a banquette divider for reasons described by the designer:
"The screen worked perfectly for our intentions on the interior of the space. The typical banquette divider is glass, giving some separation, but allowing the space to remain open. The Banker weave worked in the same way, but with true class. As you can see in the picture, it filters the content on the other side, hinting at the activity like lingerie, but still providing a sense of privacy for those dining next to it. The brass was the other component that worked really well with our design. The restaurant has a large exterior blade of a canopy that pierces the interior of the restaurant. The underside of that canopy is a reddish Spanish Brass. The Banker woven brass allowed us to connect the dots."

The Banker Architectural S-16 Woven Wire pattern has proven itself to be very resourceful as an interior design element. Typically used in more intimate applications such as Cabinetry
and Space Dividers
, the personality, texture and reflective characteristics of this woven metal is difficult to duplicate with other products. Whether it is used with the warm tones of a natural Bronze or darkened with an oil rubbed finish, the Banker S-16 Copper based mesh provides a unique method to "connect the dots" with your next project.
