This acoustic ceiling system based on the play of intersections keeps things regular with two planes intersecting at right angles. The angles of ARO Grid 1 activate the ceiling with light and shadow, allowing the ceiling grid to quietly disappear. Play with colors, custom heights, and other ARO Grid designs to create a unique landscape of sound softening pattern across the ceiling.
