The ceiling is often the forgotten space when designing a residential or commercial interior. While a large part of the budget is spent on wall and floor treatments, the ceiling often ends up painted over and declared finished.

However, a unique ceiling with body, architectural interest and a few singular touches can entirely transform a space. Here is the solution found by Sabbagh Arquitectos for the Entel corporate office building in Santiago de Chile.

The painted metal ceiling is made of Aluphant perforated aluminum panels.

The designers wanted to achieve a look that would be spectacular both during the day and at night. Metal fit the bill, giving the ceiling a modern, unconventional flair, so they chose Aluphant’s PURE Bright Brushed transparent coating to emphasize the beauty of the metal.

A visually interesting method of dressing up the ceiling is encasing light in three-dimensional structures. W&W is such a light system, designed by Pool and manufactured by Alter, both based in Paris. Perfect for large commercial spaces with dropped ceilings, W&W creates a geometric landscape that completely changes the appearance of the mundane office ceiling.

The modules are made of metal and PMMA and can be used to completely recreate the shape of a ceiling or add small areas of architectural interest to the existing ones.
