The shortest distance between two points of inspiration is often a curve. Perhaps that’s why architects throughout the ages have used vaults and domes. In the modern era, you might have your own reasons to use curved ceiling panels – such as creating increased clearance above a ceiling for ductwork, or to allow daylighting to penetrate deeper into a room. Lightweight, acoustical, and fully downward accessible, Radians® ceilings break the 3-dimensional barrier with a smoothness of gesture executed with uncompromising precision.
