The color of the fixture can be modulated with a remote controller, giving the user full control over the illumination and ambiance of the space.

Perkins + Will of Atlanta specified Sensitile Jali® Cascata for light boxes for this boardroom ceiling.
The Jali panels have a bronze backing along with a frosted face and a pattern density of 100%.

We prefabricated these into five-sided "boxes" for ease of installation and for a seamless appearance.
