Painting party for ceiling canopy with client, architectural team and friends.
Painted slats, assembled panels, and installed panel hanging below duct.
The ceiling canopy creates a procession from the reception through the entire office. Midway through construction, we held a client canopy painting party.
A range of seven colors were painted onto the 350 primed pieces of the canopy, creating an undulating gradient that responds to the amount of available light at any location.

The canopy was constructed using a simple system of five readily available parts, including cardboard tubes typically used as firework housings, zip-ties, aluminum dowels, quick release pins, and lightweight MDF.
The 100-foot canopy and the fabric banners were then assembled and installed by the architectural team.
