"The Contemporary Art museum of Munich was inaugurated last May. Its architecture is based on a design and ecological concept. The architect Sauerbruch Hutton chose Barrisol Lumière® to light and enhance the exposed works of the XXth century among which the Andy Wahrol's famous paintings. Indeed, Barrisol Lumière® diffuses the light in a sweet and homogeneous way on the whole exhibition space. Furthermore, the Barrisol sheets are 100%, recyclable and are so perfectly adapted in this modern building turned to sustainable environment." - Courtesy of www.barrisol.ca.
The design of the Vancouver UBC Aquatic Center (which includes a vertical Barrisol translucent screen) is featured this month in the Canadian Architect Magazine (August 2018 Issue, page 24 - 29). The article, High Water Mark, written by Vancouver based journalist Hadani Ditmars is worth a read. Follow the link below to view it online.
Here is an excerpt from the article, which includes a mention of the Barrisol translucent screen...
"Another distinctive element is the use of light. At the juncture delineating the family and recreational area to the west and the competition area to the east, a series of Y-shaped structural columns support a six-meter-wide skylight. The shifting sun casts patterns on the Barrisol screen, offering a textural element that helps mitigate any sense of sterility in the super white environment. The textile like feel of the material, as well as the humidity resistant large-scale tegular acoustic paneling system help to reduce noise and glare.
The entire building is effectively a tabula rosa, a screen reflecting the surrounding environment, and at night it's interior illumination - especially it's suspended LED lighting - transforms it into an architectural lantern."

NORMALU S.A. commercialized two licenses in aluminum tracks: SYMA - SYSTEM and TSI. The company began to manufacture the first stretched ceilings in 1969. Their first Barrisol® patent of registration was in 1975, the same year they won a Silver Medal in BATIMAT for the Barrisol® stretch ceiling.
Their factories and offices, BARRISOL® and NORMALU S.A. are located at the edge of Rhine, not far from the dam of Kembs, in the area of the 3 borders (France-Germany-Switzerland) and just 10 minutes from the international airport of Basel-Mulhouse-Freibrug.
