SAS International was recently chosen to provide a modern, open cell ceiling for the canteen area at Wix.com’s European headquarters in Dublin.
The renovation of the building supports the significant expansion of the Isreali software company in Ireland. With a staff of 140, the canteen space was designed to be a fun social hub, with ample space for individuals to relax during breaks.
SAS800 was selected to meet the client’s requirements to bring texture and interest to the space. This manifested most vividly in the unusual bespoke pastel colour – RAL 3012. This was chosen to mirror the darker tone of the floor area. Together, both colour blocks define the dining space.
This suspended metal ceiling also accommodates spot lighting and air conditioning grills.
Chris Carey, Designer at SAS who worked on the project said:
“The client chose SAS due to their ability to deliver a bespoke product within a demanding fitout programme. The tight timescale was challenging, but we were delighted that all was achieved on schedule to the highest SAS standard.”
The project was part of a complete fitout of an existing building at the prestigious Hanover Quay, part of what has become known as Dublin’s “Silicone Dock.” It was completed in May 2018.
