Referencing the undulating forms and textures of a cloudy sky, a billowing ceiling creates a dynamic visual statement overheard - both indoors and out. We heard from Wave Shade about the latest in this innovative architectural feature.

Defining an outdoor space in style while combining UV protection and creating shaded havens in the heat of summer can prove somewhat of a challenge. It’s a design challenge that an innovative Kiwi company has created a unique and unmistakable coastal-influenced solution for.

 

As their journey to define floating shade solutions has developed, so too has their product offering, with the original Wave Shade outdoor products now being specified both indoors and out to create relaxed yet elegant spaces reminiscent of the undulating forms of the clouds above.

 

The original Wave Shade is a solution designed to offer protection from harsh UV light and sun in the summer months and a beautiful overhead feature for those cooler nights. The Wave Shade is a flexible, easily retractable billowing shade cover, with each section designed to float around in the breeze, the movement capturing a relaxed coastal vibe.

 

The Wave Shade can be completely customised to fit any space, and is suitable to be fixed to pergolas, facades or other existing structure. In the instance there is no suitable structure to attach to, one can be specially built, or it can be fixed between two buildings. In interior settings, there are various options for fixing.

 

The shade slides on two wire cables that are tensioned around the perimeter to create a very lightweight system. The shades themselves are crafted with a woven shade mesh fabric, while the bars and other components are stainless steel. 

 

Wave Shade’s latest offerings include an acoustic version, particularly suitable for larger interior settings such as hospitality and retail spaces. 

“Used indoors, a Wave Shade can create a dramatic and dynamic ceiling feature, covering up industrial or unsightly ceilings. It’s a particularly popular option for settings where ambience is important such as eateries and retail outlets,” Wave Shade’s Nick Suckling says.

The Wave Shade currently comes with the option of two retraction systems - a simple hook and pole system to retract and extend, and a cord system similar in function to the way a blind and cord combination operate. In early 2020, a motorised version of the Wave Shade is due to be released, offering more design freedom and ease of use in larger spaces. Integrated lighting solutions are also on the cards early next year, Nick says of the product he describes as “ever evolving”.

“There are now four different fabric offerings, each available in 40 colour options. Every Wave Shade product is sold with a minimum 10-year warranty.”
