Chain Facade

A bright, colorful façade of the Ecuadorian pavilion at the Milan exhibition.

What do you think it's finished with? Solar panels, metal or vinyl siding?

No. This is an unusual way to finish a facade with anodized aluminum chains from the Spanish company Kriskadecor.

Until recently, the use of such chains was available only for the interior.

During the reconstruction of the famous Gaudi house Casa Batlló, aluminum chains were also used in the interior design.

Now there is a variant for the facade. Among the main characteristics are the lack of conductivity, non-combustibility, resistance to rust, acids and oxidation.

It is possible to adjust the finish to any size and design, reproduce images or patterns.
