French company Bacacier has teamed up with celebrated designer Philippe Starck to develop the 3S metal cladding system, which is hoping to revamp the architectural language of boring industrial buildings. This metal cladding collection consists of five different types of panels including an outer layer of 'cassettes' and custom attachment details. The cladding system was presented at Maison et Objet 2014.

Industrial buildings are often a real eye-sore on the landscape, and the 3S metal cladding project hopes to change that and get rid of the aesthetic monotony associated with industrial buildings. The system allows for a high level of customization by virtue of an approach that makes room for standardized rails, traditional construction techniques, a wide variety of color choices and outer cassette panels.
