Boutique Commercial Ceilings with Integrated LED Lighting Philadelphia
AWAKE Fabric Ceilings & Lighting of Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia and throughout the state of Pennsylvania. It is our mission to devise solutions that delight our clients with both their form and function.
We know that standing out in Philadelphia is difficult. And—fortunately or unfortunately—many buildings, and the spaces they contain, are simply not in the 21st century. To begin with, retrofitting an existing space—one more likely than not designed for something entirely different—to suit the specific needs of your business or home is a daunting task.
This is doubly true if your space needs a complete revitalization — a more refined aesthetic, updated lighting, and perfectly-balanced acoustics. But you’ll see that our combination of functional architectural textiles, when deployed by our industry-leading designers, will ultimately amount to one bespoke solution addressing each and every one of your needs.
Intersection of Art & Architecture
We occupy an elevated space at the intersection of art and architecture. We are right on the cutting edge of integrated ceiling, lighting, and acoustic design — that which is all at once practical, beautiful, and functional — and we love nothing more than elevating our clients right alongside us.
Perhaps you’re looking to transform a now-derelict retail space into the next trending restaurant. Maybe you want to start a new contemporary art gallery, or maybe you simply want to make your cramped apartment as suitable to working from home as possible. Perhaps you just want to upgrade your interior design to make it match your growing brand — modern, gleaming, and eco-friendly. Perhaps you simply want to repurpose your studio apartment into a recording studio.
In any event, the specific goal does not matter. This is not because we use cookie cutter solutions; simply put, this is not how you stay in business for over a decade and earn a reputation as an industry leader. No — it is because we can do anything that you can envision for your ceiling or wall, and because the more unique a project is, the more specific someone’s needs are, the narrower the window of opportunity for potential solutions — we relish each and every new challenge as an opportunity to show off our skills and delight our clients.
We don’t rest until we’re both satisfied that your space, whether it’s a living space, a workspace, or both, is totally maximized in terms of both form and function. Until the space, and each element contained within it enable that simple ascent into the prodigious flow state.
Integrated LED Lighting
Poor lighting is a surefire way to limit the potential of your space. Think about it: lighting literally determines how people will see whatever visual elements are within your space. And subpar lighting — either too bright, and in your face, or too dim, and hard to see — also makes it harder to live and work comfortably. The last thing you want is poor lighting negatively affecting the output of your employees.
As such, we are big advocates of LED lighting. In addition to just looking cool, properly deployed LED’s will enhance your mood and the mind (and that of your employees) when working in said space.
We absolutely love integrated and recessed LED lighting. Quite simply, there is not a more modern and accessible option available on the market today. Raw costs for LEDs have come down significantly in recent years; given that LEDs were already the most energy efficient, green, and most easily customizable option, even that which you think may be over budget is now well within reach.
Acoustic Design, Sound Pollution Mitigation
Have you ever tried working in a space plagued by awful noise pollution? One with a constant stream of unseemly reverberations? Acoustics are not seen — but they are absolutely noticed. Incomplete soundproofing, in Philadelphia just as much as any other densely populated area, will almost surely lead to high levels of noise pollution.
Anyone who has tried working in such conditions can attest to the way in which noise pollution can forcibly eject one from the flow state. Given that we want to facilitate the ascent of your employees into the flow state as much as possible, we believe that investments in soundproofing and acoustic balance can be a huge driver of productivity gains.
This is where our acoustic textiles enter the picture. We offer a complete range of acoustic products, which include acoustic textiles, sound-absorbing backers, and soundproofing and anti-vibration materials.
If you give us the chance, we’ll unlock the flow state for you and your team.
But even an ugly space with great lighting and perfect acoustics is still an ugly space. Our solutions address the aesthetic needs of a space just as much as they address the functional needs.
So, for just a moment, consider the aesthetic of your space — what it is currently, and what you would envision as the ideal aesthetic.
Attaining this for you is actually quite easy for us. This is because our stretch fabrics—the same ones that mitigate sound pollution and that can be integrated with recessed, LED lighting—can also be customized beyond your wildest imagination.
Yes, the very same fabrics that also mitigate sound pollution and which can be integrated with recessed LED lighting can be made to look and feel however you want, exactly as you want. As we sometimes say: one fabric, three 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
We’ll need to talk quite a bit before we can get started conceptualizing, designing, and installing a bespoke lighting, acoustic and aesthetic system for ceilings and walls. We don’t do cookie-cutter solutions, and every space (and every client) have different needs, desires, and visions. So before we can get started, we need to know your goals, vision, and any other necessary context for the project.
Then — inch by inch and pixel by pixel — our artists will begin to transform your vision into a first draft. This draft will serve as the starting point for collaborative revision and the finalization of the plan for your project.
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 Philadelphia will deliver a seamless installation.
