Case Study #45713: Lattice Stairs
Client: Abercrombie & Fitch
Design: Selldorf Architects
Location: Abercrombie & Fitch – New York, NY
For this high profile flagship concept store in New York City, Amuneal helped the owner and architect achieve a unique custom woven lattice material by developing a process to produce it in-house cost effectively. The bars were fed into a custom-made loom type fixture, with laser-cut locators to ensure accuracy of the pattern. The lattice was fabricated to size as both infill panels for the monumental stairway and the walls of the elevator hoistway and cab, creating the transparent effect of an old world cage elevator with a contemporary feel.
