Flowing suspended ceiling made of Escale spiral mesh in the Cour de Justice
Cour de Justice inside
Metal mesh beautifies the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.
Architect Dominique Perrault encapsulated the old building structure of the Palais de Justice in a two-storey ring elevated at a height of 11 m. The hall becomes a real highlight thanks to the gigantic installation of a golden shimmering, flowing suspended ceiling made of Escale 7x1 spiral mesh. The circular, three-dimensional structure already impresses with its dimensions, standing around 10m tall, up to 19m wide and approximately 28m long. 40 trapezoidal mesh elements unfold and overlap from a tulip-shaped center to create a canopy. The mesh panels vary in length from 5.65m to 18.35m and in width from 1.10m to 4.50m. In total, 1,387m² of tailor-made design mesh was installed.
