Cardboard Ceiling Display
Waugh Thistleton Architects were commissioned to design the interior of a London restaurant but with an unusual brief. The ethos of the restaurant is to use natural, recycled and recyclable products in its buildings and in its trade. With this in mind, the natural choice for the ceiling feature would be either timber or cardboard. Timber was ruled out because of weight and cost and so corrugated cardboard was selected.
W H Skinner were given this 3D picture to start from, together with drawings showing services and sprinklers that had to be avoided.
After test pieces were created and consultation with the client, the project was approved.
As you can see, this striking cardboard ceiling feature is certainly effective and novel and it lends the illusion that this is indeed a cardboard building!
