Classical styling – individual design freedom
OWA has further enhanced the successful OWAconsult® collection designed by Hadi Teherani with more new styles, named the Corpus series.
Stylistically uncompromising, functional with a plethora of design options – these are the main distinguishing features of the OWAconsult® collection. This new generation of ceiling systems certainly lives up to its name. It embodies a new, highly adaptable concept of ceiling design and so creates a clearly recognisable, individual character, especially in very large rooms, which helps to bring together all the other elements of the room.
The new Corpus ideas volved from the well-established working relationship between the esteemed designer and architect Hadi Teherani together with technicians and development engineers of OWA. Since 2012, the OWAconsult® collection designed by Hadi Teherani has provided not only a timeless concept – even when modular ceilings are behing the design – but also enables a tremendous amount of design freedom. Corpus has now succeeded in expanding this freedom even further. Ultrafine, white, fleece covered surfaces are interwoven seamlessly, thereby modelling the formal content and cohesion of the individual elements. That way, Corpus blends avant-garde freedom with classical styling, giving it its own, unmistakable impression. In addition, as an essential characteristic of the OWAconsult® collection, there are the outstanding absorption properties of the individual elements, which ensure exemplary room acoustics, especially when they are combined.
Ten different rectangular or alternatively square shapes are available in the Corpus series to be able to implement the greatest variety of ceiling designs – thanks to discrete and yet easy to use connection system. The elements are available in sizes between 520 x 520 x 150 mm and 1120 x 2320 x 300 mm with designs in S, M, L, XL and XXL. The various possible combinations that can be created from them is enhanced even more by the flexible installation permutations.
Interior designers can space the elements piece by piece to spread across any size of ceiling area or can connect the individual elements together to from lager shapes. That way, designers can either create their individual and strong impressions in the room or design the ceiling so that it fits “seamlessly” into the room concept.
Furthermore, there is a plan to combine the Corpus elements with optically matched LED lights in order to expand the variation possibilities in connection with the lighting design. The use of LED light cubes in a basic format of 520 x 520 mm is under development. Further possibilities of the lighting design are to be provided by the 80 mm wide LED strips, which can fit into the element joints with ease and harmonise the ceiling and lighting into a complete system. Whilst the individual elements retain their homogenous identity.
