Entertainment Venue Design Tips with Tension Structures

By December 23, 2019 January 14th, 2020 No Comments

When designing any commercial interior environment, textiles can have a dramatic impact on the mood and ambiance of the space. Because fabric is lightweight, flexible, and inexpensive with an infinite number of potential uses, it’s an excellent choice for commercial design. 

Whether you’re designing a bar, nightclub, hotel lobby, or entertainment venue, your goal is to create a one-of-a-kind destination. As your tension fabric structure experts, Eide Industries has a wide selection of tension structures available to suit virtually any commercial project. 

Discover how tensile structures can enhance entertainment venues in the following ways. 

Define space

The skillful use of fabric can help divide space and create a sense of place in a commercial interior. Fabric tension structures can function as room dividers in a light and airy way that built construction cannot achieve. Likewise, hanging fabric panels can create a similar effect. Textiles can easily be used to add warmth and color and help create an atmosphere.

Create mood and ambiance

Whether you want your tension structures to look more angular and hard-edged, or soft and fluid, you have room for creativity. Fabric structures in an entertainment venue are versatile design elements. With the various selections in colors and styles, your architectural fabric can change the way people feel upon entering a space.

Enhance lighting design 

Lighting is just as important to the aesthetics of an interior as they are practical, and you have to carefully consider its impact on the space. Combined with your light fixtures, fabric can accentuate the visual appeal and function of any space. By incorporating high-tech fabrics, such as PTFE-coated fiberglass mesh fabric, they can reflect or diffuse light as part of the space’s overall design.     

Reduce noise

Acoustics are a challenge for any commercial space — especially for entertainment venues and restaurants. Some common problems can include sound reverberation or background noise that makes conversations difficult. Fabric generally helps dampen noise, but tensioned fabric structures are an aesthetically pleasing option for absorbing sound compared to acoustic foam.

No matter your design obstacle, there’s always a way around it. As you learn more about tension structures, you just may find a new use that can benefit your project.
