At Europe’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems in Munich from January 12 to 17, 2009 GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG will be presenting three innovative types of woven metal mesh. Mediamesh® und Illumesh®, stainless steel meshes with interwoven LED technology developed in cooperation with the mediatecture company ag4 media facade GmbH, already set spectacular accents on buildings in several locations across Europe. As transparent “skin”, the two mesh systems provide a view of the architecture behind the façade while at the same time functioning as a media platform for all kinds of displays ranging from graphics to video sequences and even live transmissions.
With its latest product line, Nativemesh, GKD presents an innovative stainless steel mesh with weft elements composed of natural materials. The combination of these two materials is much more than the sum of its manmade and naturally grown components: Nativemesh creates scope for design through unexpected synergies. It unites the beauty of nature with the aesthetics of what was originally an industrial product to provide aconvincing solution for sustainability in construction. As the first product of this new line GKD presents Nativebamboo.
