Fabric Sails – Using Fabric Internally — Architen Landrell – Tensile Fabric Architecture, Structures and Canopies

Different levels of translucent fabric and varying mesh densities throughout the fabric range can make fabric features ideal for controlling or enhancing light. Interior shade canopies can be used to reduce solar glare or to enhance natural illumination and reflect light throughout a building. The nature of fabric interacts well with articficial lighting as well as natural. Subtle use of light control and printing on semi-translucent screening can also create the illusion of depth and space where, in reality, none exists. Graphics may also be applied to interior fabric structures through lighting from above, below or even from inside the structure. From classic feature lighting to modern colour changing lighting, static structures can easily be made to look dynamic and even more exciting at the flick of a switch. Environmentally sound and energy saving designs can be individually shaped to the specifications of each project by Architen Landrell’s specialist technical lighting division.
