Origami-Like Ceilings

The Salon Urbain Lounge is Dynamically Geometric and Vibrant

— June 28, 2012 — Art & Design
The Salon Urbain Lounge offers a stunning space, mainly because of its striking ceiling design. As though inspired by the art of origami, it is an intricate installation of geometric folds that give the surface a three-dimensional appeal. More than that, it has been backlit with white and pink lights, that turn a more dramatic shade of pink at night, which helps to accentuate the shape and contour of each panel.

Designed by Sid Lee Architecture in collaboration with Ædifica, the Salon Urbain Lounge is located at the Place des Arts in Montreal, Canada. A treat before and after the concerts playing at this venue, it proves that the show does not have to end soon after the curtain call. Instead, it lives on in the dynamic and vibrant lounge space.
Trend Themes
1. Origami-inspired Design - There is a growing trend of incorporating origami-like aesthetics into architectural and interior designs, creating visually striking and unique spaces.
2. Dynamic Lighting - The use of dynamic lighting techniques, such as backlit panels that change colors, is becoming popular to enhance the visual impact and atmosphere of a space.
3. Sustainable Architecture - Architects and designers are increasingly focusing on creating sustainable and eco-friendly designs, and incorporating foldable and modular structures, like origami, as part of their innovative approach.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Architects can explore origami-inspired designs to create visually stunning and unique buildings, both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
2. Interior Design - Interior designers can incorporate dynamic lighting techniques to enhance the ambiance and create immersive experiences in residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces.
3. Art and Sculpture - Artists and sculptors can experiment with foldable and modular structures inspired by origami to create captivating installations that redefine traditional art forms.
