Kaynemaile worked with inspirational kinetic artist Ned Kahn and the team at Schooley Caldwell to develop the design for the parking garage exterior at the Greater Columbus Convention Centre in Ohio.
The kinetic parking feature is used to connect the interior with the exterior of the convention centre and to create an interest piece for passers-by while the screens gently blow in the breeze. Each of the three screens are single pieces of mesh measuring a total of approximately 9,006 square feet.
Ned Kahn chose Kaynemaile because of our past experience in producing a number of his architectural scale artworks. Kaynemaile is a cost effective solution for kinetic work which harnesses the unique properties of the product.
As Kaynemaile mesh had been used as a ceiling feature in the convention center’s Union Ballroom, the architects and the event centre board knew our product and were highly supportive of this material selection.
Kaynemaile mesh is quick to install, requires less sub-frame than other materials and is strong. We are able to produce screens in unlimited sizes - with no joins or seams. A great solution for parking garage exteriors.
