A little over two decades ago, artistic director, Kayne Horsham was working on the set of the beloved trilogy, Lord Of The Rings, where he discovered his love for chainmail material and it’s sculptural capabilities through future-forward technology and expert engineering. After his time on set, Kayne took this creative spirit and undying passion for material innovation and brought it to the world of architecture and design. Along the way, he found himself deep in research, exploring and discovering every intricate detail of chainmail. The result? A limitless 3D material of solid polycarbonate resin rings with no joints or seams. AKA: Kaynemaile.

The Kaynemaile offering is unlike any other. As the experts of architectural mesh, this state of the art product is the result of 60 years worth of material science and extensive research. This one of a kind material features a series of polycarbonate rings that seamlessly interlink to form a modern chainmail fabric. Its resulting strength and high flexibility offer unlimited design potential for illustrious ceiling features and elegant interior screens, ideal for partitions and space dividers.

Ideal for interior screening, this versatile mesh material allows interior spaces to be divided, defined or decorated whilst maintaining transparency and airflow. The stylistic range of hanging, folding or framed dividers provide clients with the choice of how they create privacy and partitions. From smooth, curved screens to geometric folds or kinetic screens, the design options are boundless.

The Kaynemaile team works closely with clients to collaborate on design concepts and create custom features. As seen in their involvement with many projects, a range of unique ceiling features and interior screening have been beautifully incorporated in commercial and residential spaces.

Notable examples highlight Kaynemaile’s large range in colour: Bronze mesh was used to create a warm and dynamic ceiling feature in the new Crowne Plaza Hotel at Christchurch; the chainmail ‘ribbons’ that flow across the lobby were designed by Designworks and inspired by the movement of the Avon river.
