Morton Square

The entrance ceiling of this New York City building is adorned with multiple layers of architectural woven metal fabrics – FSZ-1, P-278, and PZ-7. The different textures and visual weights created by the layers of wire mesh are held by suspension rods and standoffs.

This custom ceiling uses stainless angle iron frames with the woven wire mesh welded to the back side. The down rods set the spacing to create the multiple layers of transparency.
