NYC, USA, 40 Bond Street, Cladding
In New York City Ian Schrager built an 11-floor apartment block at 40 Bond Street (opening 2007), designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
In front of the building is a cast-aluminum gate derived from contemporary graffiti tags, see Forming of Sculptural Gate.
In embossed form the design of the gate is repeated on the shimmering green metal facade and on the stainless steel walls in the hallway by using Product Line EXYD-N.
In perforated form the design of the sculptured gate continues on the ceiling of the hallway (Product Line Pattern Perforation).
Founder of EXYD Detlef Schobert, working under the supervision of the architects, developed the embossed pattern and the perforated pattern. Afterwards these patterns have been applied also on the walls of wood and Corian® and on the floor.
EXYD produced and delivered the finished stainless-steel panels ready to fit in position. The coloration of the stainless steel surfaces was carried out by Inox-Color. Empire Architectural Metal of New York assembled the sections.
