Paneled walls and ceilings in lobby design

The use of aluminum panels for wall cladding is a relatively new method in interior design, but Aluphant makes it an attractive option for commercial spaces. Aluminum panels have great functional qualities such as ease of installation and low maintenance, but their main appeal lies in their versatility and aesthetics. Used by talented designers as wall cladding materials, they can bring the much sought-after non-standard element into a space, turning it from commonplace to unique.

Retail store decorative ceiling with mirror effectAluphant, a company that offers high-quality coated aluminum surfaces for both interior and exterior design and architecture projects, used aluminum panels to create a white-on-mirror design for the Longchamp store in London. The metal sheet with a mirror effect is painted in white, with a pattern of galloping horses.

The paneled wall in the lobby is a sculptural structure that brings to mind the angular shapes and white undertones of ice. The ceiling, finished by Aluphant with a transparent coating, is set against these immaculate vertical constructions, which highlights the brass color of the metal.

Aluphant offers a variety of aluminum finishes, from bronze and brass to copper and stainless steel, and from deep polished or sparkling iridescent to textured finishes. For those who are looking for wall cladding materials with a twist, the company responds to requests for customized aluminum surfaces as well.
