Breathing Ceiling Strato

Our new Strato range offers a number of efficient solutions for dealing with the complex questions posed by ceiling design in buildings today. How may their acoustic comfort be improved? How may room be found to freely position cables and network ducts? How may disparate technical installations be brought into visual harmony without amputating the given volume, and how may such unsightly elements be concealed while still maintaining access to the plenum1? etc.
Born from Texaa®’s expertise in the  eld of transparent textiles and acoustic object solutions, Strato provides a coherent, innovative system which may be used to build ceilings of varying configurations to suit a wide range of spaces.
Strato is composed of modules which may be fitted together in combination or made to measure to offer effective interior design solutions or enhance the
acoustic comfort of any given space.

Product only available in United Kingdom, Germany, United States and France.
