Wood ceilings for museums are unique projects, as much as the buildings that feature them and the works they cover. A wood ceiling designed for an exhibition hall should make a contribution to the decoration of the room while leaving the leading role to the artworks on exhibit. This project is a clear example of this.
The Hall of Mayors of Bilbao City Hall is a 100 m² space located in the west wing of the building. It holds about twenty portraits of most of the mayors of the city, from 1873 until today. The room offers visitors a restful atmosphere, with dim lights, which invite one to contemplate the paintings that stand out in this environment for their own lighting.
It was necessary to install a solution on the ceiling that would provide order and harmony, integrating downlights, speakers and other elements, but also respecting the sobriety and elegance of the room. A Spigoline wood slat ceiling was chosen. It is comprised of wood slat panels laid out in a GRID system, model 5-15-70-55, with solid obeche wood finish, stained with standard varnish, installed with fastening fastening clips.
The result is extraordinary, achieving a perfect aesthetic solution that also gives the room a feeling of greater breadth.
