Historic New York City Hotel Features SEFAR® Architecture LIGHTFRAME
The iconic Milford Plaza Hotel first opened in New York City’s theatre district in 1928. Today, it remains one of Manhattan’s largest hotels, and now includes an Internet café and coffee shop adorned with a LIGHTFRAME illuminated fabric wall backdrop from SEFAR® Architecture.
The LIGHTFRAME modules were built with SEFAR Architecture’s IA-80-CL PVDF acoustic fabric that allows 80 percent light transmission. The light-technical and acoustic fabric provides echo absorption through its uncoated textile structure.
LIGHTFRAME creates a pleasant and highly stylized space inside the Milford Plaza Hotel by providing uniform light transmission. The illuminated dual fabric system casts virtually no shadows due to its half-elliptical profile. The custom modules are hinged to allow direct access to the curtain wall behind for cleaning and maintenance.
