The external rainscreen to this Neiman Marcus storefront has been designed to look like a scarf as it ripples in a breeze. The use of three of RIMEX's finishes in this design has enabled this effect to be successfully produced on stainless steel.
The rainscreen has been manufactured using ColourTex® Champagne and Bronze coloured stainless steel sheets in the 6WL [USA reference 6-OM] pattern alongside the bead blast GRANEX™ finish in the 6WL pattern. All the material supplied is 1.2mm / 0.047" thick and was supplied in sheet format.
The sheets have been fabricated to different panels sizes, angles and shapes to set different finishes alongside each other. In some instances this involves different finishes within the same panel.The result is to create a rainscreen that mixes three different stainless steel finishes which give the structure its intended appearance of fluidity to resemble a scarf blowing in the wind.
