Suspended Ceiling Clouds at The Mellow Mushroom Restaurant

Mellow Mushroom restaurant

The Mellow Mushroom pizza chain assigned the construction of its new restaurant, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, to the architecture firm Tobin Starr + Partners. The three suspended ceilings, which are the focal point and masterpiece of the restaurant, were designed in the image of the flying carpets of The Arabian Nights tales.

About the project

Project: Mellow Mushroom restaurant
Date: 2011
Location: Charlotte, NC
Installer: WARCO Construction
Architect: Tobin Starr + Partners
Photographer: Rick Tanner

WARCO Construction, a CLIPSO® Certified Installer, was in charge of the installation of this original, colorful and artistic decor, which immediately grabs the attention of the patrons. This project used CLIPSO 495 D acoustic covering and CLIPSO P-C10 and P-CC profiles for the three ceilings: one measuring 10 ft x 20 ft, and the other two measuring 6 1/2 ft x 13 ft.

The versatility of the CLIPSO system immediately appealed to the project managers who were sourcing a printable, customizable covering providing acoustic optimization.

Only four days were needed to install the entire project. Two days were needed to install the profiles and coverings, and another two days were needed to integrate the audiovisual elements into the ceiling clouds.

The result? Wavy, magic carpet-like ceilings designed to transport their patrons to another place and time.
