Loewe is a luxury fashion retailer owned by the LVMH Group— among whose many prestigious fashion subsidiaries include Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Marc Jacobs. Drawing on Cambridge’s diversity of architectural mesh patterns and its ability to build ambitious designs, LVMH Group specified a custom Cambridge ceiling panel, now hanging prominently in the high-end store.
700 feet of metal fabric hangs above the pathways, dispersing light throughout the space and providing a soft golden glow with a sophisticated elegance that matches the store’s luxury retail items.
Cambridge’s modified Sawgrass pattern metal mesh is tightly woven, hiding industrial LED lighting fixtures above and diffusing harsh lighting to create a soft, pleasing aesthetic that speaks to the architect’s vision of emulating a high-end jewelry box. The mesh’s ability to be formed into a curved shape allows the mesh to flow with the rest of the store’s architectural elements, and works with the pattern to deliberately sculpt lighting within the space.
Cambridge architectural mesh is a worry-free element often added to commercial interiors like Loewe. Due to its high durability, the mesh is sure to maintain its structure and requires virtually no maintenance. Beyond its product benefits, Cambridge provides full engineering support for its systems, and honors a Gross Maximum Pricing model – assuring clients that regardless of how the project’s needs change, Cambridge’s price will not.
Cambridge manufactures 100% recyclable stainless steel entirely in the USA, and is an active member of the USGBC®.
