It’s Raining Chains in the Talsee Showroom
View Slideshow

Swiss architecture firm Burkard Meyer knew only an innovative and unique space would do in the new showroom of bathroom fixture company Talsee. Partnering with KriskaDECOR, a family run business that cranks out metallic chain curtains, a modular system of rain-like silver chains were created to hang in the central client reception area of the space.

Using chains at a variety of lengths, they were able to build and create a “room” inside the massive showroom to give the feeling of a separate space without being closed off. Rows of chain were hung giving a layered and ethereal effect.

Lights were strategically placed above and throughout the chain system which gives the space a bit of a surreal ambiance.

The chains hang from above the second floor, which houses offices, making the effect even more dramatic.
