Designer Commercial Ceilings with Recessed LED Lighting LA
AWAKE Fabric Ceilings & Lighting of Los Angeles is an international portfolio of architectural textiles, ceiling & lighting systems.
We specialize in creating modern, LED-backlit and acoustically tuned ceiling and wall installations for commercial and residential clients in Los Angeles and throughout the state of California. It is our mission to devise solutions that delight our clients with both their form and function.
Los Angeles is a fantastic place to live and work. However, most existing spaces—whether residential or commercial—will not be suited to your specific needs. It’s just a fact of life that modifying an existing space—one more likely than not designed for something entirely different from your intended use—can seem like a daunting, difficult task. That’s precisely where we come in.
It doesn’t matter if you just want a boost to your acoustics to combat the noise pollution from incessant traffic, or if you simply want a modern system of recessed LED lights. Maybe your space needs a complete gutting and reimagination — some combination of more refined aesthetics, more modern lighting, and more balanced acoustics.
It may seem like a giant task, but our collection of functional architectural textiles—in tandem with our industry-leading, intelligent design—will allow us to tailor one bespoke solution that is perfect for your space and meets all of your needs.
Intersection of Art & Architecture
Perhaps you’re looking to transform a derelict retail space into the next trendy restaurant; if that’s the case, you’ll love a branded “statement” wall (the kind that ends up plastered on Instagram) that also happens to enhance the acoustics of the space, making private, low conversations ever easier for your patrons.
Perhaps you’re looking to simply update your interior design so that it’s congruent with your brand identity — modern, gleaming, and eco-friendly.
Perhaps you simply want to repurpose your studio apartment into a recording studio for your burgeoning podcast, or as a perfect workspace for your freelancing work.
In any event, the specific goal doesn’t truly matter. That’s not because we simply slap the same cookie-cutter solution onto every project. That’s now how you stay in and at the forefront of an industry for over a decade. No — it’s because if you can envision it for your ceiling or wall, we can absolutely make it happen.
We take great pride in being squarely positioned right at the intersection of art and architecture; that means we’re uniquely positioned to help clients finally have the space they never thought possible. Just try and stump us!
You can’t, and we don’t rest until we’ve totally maximized both the form and function of every space we work on. We don’t rest until your aesthetics are synonymous with your brand and we don’t rest until the materials we use for your space make your space more conducive to high levels of productivity, mental clarity, and reaching that goal state of deep work.
We’re unique in our simultaneous mastery of lighting, acoustics, and aesthetics, and in our ability to seamlessly blend all three into one bespoke solution, one perfect for you, one which is all at once practical, beautiful, and functional.
Integrated LED Lighting
Poor lighting puts a low ceiling on the potential of any space. We believe great design begins with the lighting; optimized lighting, in addition to merely looking cool, will enhance the mood and mind of both your employees and your customers alike.
We cannot possibly speak highly enough of integrated and recessed LED lighting. They are, quite simply, the most modern lighting option on the market in 2020. Recent innovations have seen a considerable decrease in the raw cost of LEDs; given that LEDs were already the most energy efficient, cost-effective, and most easily customizable option, even that which you may have considered impossible is fully within your reach.
We’ve been integrating LEDs into ceilings and walls for over a decade now, and we smile each and every time we get the chance to elevate another space with inspired, integrated, and recessed LED lighting.
Acoustic Design, Sound Pollution Mitigation
But unlocking your perfect space isn’t just in the LEDs. Acoustic balance is equally important. Even though you can’t see acoustics, you certainly notice them. Think about the constant drone of traffic as you try to sleep, or about the reverberation from that low-flying plane just taking off or preparing to land.
You simply can’t have white noise reverberating throughout your workspace, living space, or any other type of space — at least not if you’re desiring that the space will reach its full potential. Incomplete soundproofing—in LA perhaps more than anywhere else—will lead to high levels of noise pollution, which will put an unfortunate cap on the potential of your space.
We all know that the majority of productivity occurs with the “flow state” of deep work, and we also know that poor acoustics are perhaps the most surefire way to inhibit individuals from finding their flow. That’s where our acoustic textiles enter the fray. Their benefits may not be seen, but they’ll absolutely be noticed and appreciated. We offer a complete range of acoustic products, which include acoustic textiles, sound-absorbing backers, and soundproofing and anti-vibration materials.
By ensuring your space is acoustically balanced and free of noise pollution, we’ll unlock that flow state for you and your employees.
But, for just a moment, put aside the functionality of integrated LED lighting and perfectly-balanced acoustics. Consider the aesthetic of your space — as it is currently, and what you would daydream about as ideal.
Keep in mind that the aesthetic of whatever bespoke solution we end up designing to suit your lighting and acoustic needs can be fully customized. Yes, you read that right: one architectural fabric, three essential applications.
Whether it’s your company’s color scheme and glossy branding, a matte, abstract design, or something inspired by the Fibonacci sequence — we will delight in figuring out how to make it happen for you.
Artistic Innovation, Direction, Collaboration
Our work — conceptualizing, designing, and installing a bespoke lighting, acoustic and aesthetic system for ceilings and walls — is extremely consultative. We need to know what you hope to get out of the project in terms of your goals, your vision, and any other information you feel we absolutely must know to maximize your space.
Once we have the requisite context, our artists — inch by inch, pixel by pixel — will begin to transform your vision into a first draft of your bespoke solution. This is the starting point that will be collaboratively revised and refined into a final plan.
Once the plan is sorted, our focus turns to quality control. It is quite literally our business to ensure that each and every installation is of museum-quality, no matter how large or small, and in terms of the materials used and the overall quality of the install.
