At GKD, when we think “metal fabric” we envision extraordinary design, nearly limitless applications and ever-evolving innovation. While metal fabric can be used in a variety of applications, we’ve profiled the top three ways architects and designers are incorporating the versatile material into building design.
Metal fabrics offer architects and designers a powerful ally in creating texture. With a broad spectrum of fabric design, thickness, weight, width and transparency, metal fabrics from GKD are especially well suited to a diverse array of interior and exterior applications.
GKD Metal Fabrics is proud to welcome Rod Whisner to its team. Whisner will serve as Director of Marketing for the architectural business unit. He will also head up Marketing and Sales support efforts for the industrial mesh and process belts business units, of which GKD is the undisputed leader in both categories.
After disappointment with material samples and mock-ups for the new Houston Area Safety Council, Kirksey Architecture turned to GKD Metal Fabrics to create an elaborate etched stainless steel façade. The resulting design is an ode to Texas industry that will welcome visitors for decades to come.
