EXYD developed the surface design for the ceiling based on the crackled effect on the surface of a half-frozen lake (below left) and produced the panels (Product Line EXYD-F with Pattern Perforation).

The chromium-nickel stainless steel was polished by Inox-Color. The ceiling panels were fitted by the Swedish locally based company Interoc. The ceiling substructure was provided by Lindner (hook-on system LMD-E 213).

EXYD focuses on surfaces – the products can be adapted for use with existing ceiling and wall systems. Product Line EXYD-F is available among others also as fully integrated component of the ceiling program "Lindner Lunar – Living Ceilings".
