EVOLUTION LOUNGE, Wilkes-Barre, PA
Specifier: Highland Associates, Ltd. / Clarks Summit, PA
Installer: Zebby Sulecki, Inc. / Newtown Square, PA
Project: To achieve the futuristic design in the Evolution Lounge, Newmat stretched 3 black lacquer membranes over aluminum frames to provide the outlines needed.
These membranes were secured in an unconventional “pick point” fashion using custom clips instead of Newmat profiles to allow for a free-form perimeter.
In addition, metal tubes with rounded caps were pushed into the membranes to create this 3-D design. Furthermore, Newmat’s easily cleanable system was a necessary feature for this heavy smoking area.
