Introducing Tessellate™ by ABI & Zahner
October 2010
ABI has retooled its line of adaptive systems, now called Intelligent Surfaces, including both updated and newly developed systems that are being implemented in two new projects.
The newest addition to our Intelligent Surfaces catalog is the Tessellate™ surface, an architectural metal surface that continually changes its pattern and opacity, combining refined detailing, design customization and adaptive performance benefits.
Developed by ABI, Tessellate™ surfaces are delivered in partnership with A. Zahner Co.
