Tette: Modular Facade System
— sponsored by the Metal Finishing Association of Southern California
Tette is an exploration of anodized surfaces in architectural application. A sleeve of color telescopes over a metallic frame to allow customization of a 6 inch x 6 inch tile.
Shiny plating receives the color of the anodized parts with the integration of lighting. Blurs of color along the backplate give the tile depth beyond its surface, and double the impact of the anodized color.
Using the same frame metallic frame, tensile surfaces can be pinned on to provide shade as an alternative to louvres.
