ARO Grid 3

This versatile and variable system combines two arcs of varying depths to break up the drop ceiling grid with curved forms and active patterning. Mix up colors to create secondary patterning or keep it simple with a landscape of mono-toned forms in a ceiling system that keeps the design bar high while it’s budget-friendly to boot.

  • Variation Color variation is evidence of the manufacturing process of the material.

Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
