The well-known 3D artist Tim Berresheim from Cologne developed a covering for the single family home in cooperation with the Niggemeyer printing company. In comparison to the surrounding houses, it goes without saying that this is a uniquely eye-catching façade.
The design was printed on the Mehler Texnologies VALMEX® TF 400 mesh, after the colours and set up were first digitally tested.
At the client’s request, it was printed with a resolution of up to 800 dpi.
A total of more than 600 m² were printed out and installed. Horizontal supports on the upper and lower ends of the material enable the membrane to withstand strong wind gusts. The flame-retardant material can withstand temperatures between -20 and +70 °C.
