Kaynemaile architectural mesh pushes the boundaries of what is stylistically possible, resulting in transformative ceiling features and interior screening for any space.
June 7th, 2021
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.
Water Clear Kaynemaile mesh in One Lakefront Apartments at Seattle prove to be a beautiful colour to create light fixtures, as designed by Robin Chell Design. Obsidian Black Kaynemaile hanging screens form partitions in the cafeteria of Ohio’s White Castle HQ, designed by M+A Architects.
Whilst being aesthetically enchanting, this truly visionary material is also highly functional. Kaynemaile ceiling features and interior screenings are both fire resistant and durable. Its lightweight quality and simple fixing system ensures fast installation. High airflow through a space is also maintained as the material’s open weave does not interfere with heating and cooling systems. Further, the unique manufacturing process of this versatile architectural mesh ensures that the material is eco-friendly and 100% recyclable.
