Suspended Installations Brighten Open Interior Spaces in Winter

This winter, why not update your organization’s architecture with a brightly colored, large-scale suspended installation by Banner Art Studio?

The lightweight fabric architectural art we design for medical offices, hospitals, recreation facilities, schools and universities, colleges, children’s centers and office buildings is light and eye-catching.

When our activities naturally move indoors for the season, it makes sense to beautify and bring new life and color to open atrium architecture, entryways, skylights and other vaulted indoor spaces. Our mobiles spark creativity, inspire employees, create a sense of community, promote learning, send a positive message, and beautify interior spaces.

Some of our most popular subjects for indoor displays are butterflies: monarchs, brightly colored butterflies, and dragonflies. Our big butterfly mobile art complements the modern high ceilings and skylights of children’s centers, educational institutions, schools and hospitals with bright eye-catching color. Clients often choose our butterfly motif when they want to bring an inspirational message to patients, children, staff and students. See examples of our work in our Photo Gallery Portfolio, including our Gallery of Large Scale Butterfly Art Installations.

Each piece is light translucent and dust and dirt resistant, designed to catch air currents and natural light coming in through windows and skylights. We design pieces of art that reflect an organization’s logo colors and themes, helps maintain continuity of a brand, blends with art motifs already in the space, or that sends a message of hope, unity and renewal.

Banner Art Studio has developed an assembly process for our suspended installations that makes them easy to pack, ship and install. Jo Hohlbein, Creative Director at the Indianapolis Zoo says:

It was amazing how easy Mettje and her team made the mobile to install. One person could handle a piece of the mobile easily, and Mettje does an incredible job of marking things so it’s obvious for anyone to see how they fit together.

“My job as a ‘banner’ designer is to represent the highest aspirations of my clients, and to give them a ‘banner’ to unite the group,” says founding artist Mettje Swift of her fabric architectural art. “The aesthetic comes from nature, indigenous design and modern art. The tradition of banners, is, by nature, public art. Banners & hanging mobiles adorn architectural spaces, but most importantly, represent pride and human aspiration.”
