Lunar – a unique and innovative internal decorative wall covering system – architects SHCA.
Lunar by Levolux is a fabric wall system with a high copper content. The fabric has memory when ‘scrunched up’ & released, retaining a new shape. Due to the copper component , the fabric creates a textured two tone appearance when illuminated. The finished product has the appearance of cleft granite, but is soft to the touch & provides excellent acoustic absorption.

Litecrete is a precast concrete system that has various applications as an external/internal single wall or floor system or seperate internal /external systems ,depending on the application required. There are abundance of advantages ranging from sound insulation properties, quick installation, excellent fire resistance while being half the weight of tradional concrete panels.
Depending on tastes there is no need for further wall linings either internally or externally to which allows for good economics within construction. Although such system of construction has been around since early last century , its uses have generally been applied for commercial use. Other than the need for variety i cannot see why it is not a popular choice within in residential applications more so considering the direction that we are trying to perceive as being “Green” as it allows for less material use an energy within production and application.
Not that the material itself is anything new . Neither the method of manufacturing (laser cutting and brake form sheeting), but the principle by us being designers is that we apply our own method of design rather than rely on the manufacturers industry standards. Good to see an element of design artistry within the process to which there has become an homonginised way to which many projects have become. The materials are purely our canvas !
The riotously sculptural $100-million Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, the story is about the depths — and ultimately the limits — of the human mind.
While the signature steel forms of the Lou Ruvo Center may at first suggest the building is just another Gehry project, think again. What distinguishes this Gehry design from the rest is that it is the only one for hire, not to mention that the building has received critical praise from the Los Angeles Times architecture critic, Christopher Hawthorne, as having the most impressive Gehry-designed interior space since the architect’s Disney Concert Hall in 2003.

At the new location of Manhattan coffee shop D’Espresso, a prevalence of books also nods to its unique location. Inspired by the nearby New York Public Library at Bryant Park, design firm nemaworkshop envisioned a book-lined oasis, then turned the whole thing on its side, so that the bookshelves become the floor and ceilings. The herringbone-patterned oak “flooring” becomes a wall, and the lights on the “ceiling” protrude horizontally out from the wall behind the counter. The “books” are actually tiles printed with sepia-toned photos of bookshelves at a local travel bookstore that ring the room, including the floor, walls and ceiling.
