Custom Commercial Ceilings with Integrated LED Lighting Manhattan NY
AWAKE Fabric Ceilings & Lighting is a Manhattan-based 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 Manhattan and greater New York City. It is our mission to devise solutions that delight our clients with both their form and function.
We know that it’s hard to stand out in a sea of skyscrapers. Harder, even, to retrofit an existing space—one more likely than not designed for something entirely different—to suit the specific needs of your business or home.
This is especially true if your space needs a full facelift — a more refined aesthetic, modern lighting, and proper acoustics. With just the right combination of architectural textiles and intelligent design, we can tailor one bespoke solution to suit each of your various needs.
Intersection of Art & Architecture
Perhaps you’d like to transform a once-stodgy retail space into a trending restaurant, one with perfectly balanced acoustics and a branded “statement” wall — the kind that’ll inevitably end up all over Instagram. Or maybe you want your interior design to be congruent with that of your brand — modern, gleaming, and eco-friendly. Maybe you merely want to turn your studio apartment into a podcast recording studio. Whatever you can envision for your ceilings and walls, we can make happen.
We pride ourselves on being firmly positioned at the intersection of art and architecture. That means we won’t rest until both the form and function of your space — commercial or residential — is maximized. Until the aesthetic trumpets a clear and resonant brand and the materials and design enable that seamless ascent into the prolific flow state.
Our clients are elevated right alongside us onto the cutting edge of integrated ceiling, lighting, and acoustic design — that which is simultaneously practical, beautiful, and functional.
Integrated LED Lighting
As denizens of elevated, modern design, we see lighting as both the foundation and the backbone of your space. Intelligently-designed lighting, in addition to simply looking nice, will enhance the mood and the mind when occupying said space.
We are proponents of integrated and recessed LED lighting. This is the most ultra-modern lighting option on the market today. Combined with recent innovations that have sharply lowered the raw costs of LEDs — already the most energy efficient, eco-conscious, and easily customizable option — the options for your space are truly infinite.
We have already been designing and installing backlit ceilings and walls for over a decade.
Acoustic Design, Sound Pollution Mitigation
Lighting may be the foundation of your space, but acoustic design is the spine. A lack of proper soundproofing can lead to a space being plagued by high reverberations, echoes, and sound pollution.
Anyone who has attempted to live or work in Manhattan — especially on the lower floors of a building — can attest to the way in which sound pollution can forcibly pull one out of the “flow” in which deep work and true productivity are achieved.
The acoustic benefits provided by our range of textiles may not be seen, but they will certainly be noticed. We offer a complete range of acoustic products, which include acoustic textiles, sound-absorbing backers, and soundproofing and anti-vibration materials. By creating a space that is acoustically balanced and free of noise pollution, we will help unlock that flow for you and your team.
After a brief consultation, we can devise a bespoke acoustic solution tailored to your needs.
But, for just a moment, put aside the functionality of integrated LED lighting and perfectly-balanced acoustics. Consider the aesthetic of your space — currently, and what you envision as ideal.
It’s important to understand that our stretch fabrics — the very same stretch fabrics that will mitigate sound pollution and which will be integrated with recessed LED lighting — the look and feel of these fabrics can be customized beyond your wildest imagination.
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
What we do — conceptualizing, designing, and installing a bespoke lighting, acoustic and aesthetic system for ceilings and walls — requires a high degree of interaction. We want to know your goals, vision, and the other necessary context for the project.
Then — inch by inch and pixel by pixel — our artists will begin to conceptualize your vision into a first draft of sorts. This first draft will be collaboratively revised and refined into a final design.
At that point, our focus turns to quality control to ensure that each and every installation, no matter how small, is of at least museum/gallery quality. Finally, our installation partner in Manhattan will deliver a seamless installation.
