Fabricoil® Ceiling Systems Enhance CASBAR Lounge

SLS Las Vegas’ Newest Bar Showcases Graceful Coiled Wire Fabric Design

TUALATIN, OR…Cascade Architectural, the international leader in the design and manufacture of coiled wire fabric systems, recently provided a striking ceiling treatment for the new CASBAR lounge at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino—an all-encompassing resort and casino with 1,615 guest rooms and an array of restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues.

As part of a $100 million transformation of the casino, the elegant 24-hour CASBAR lounge showcases vibrant gold, orange, and purple tones to create “a striking setting reminiscent of moody desert sunsets,” according to SLS Las Vegas. The lounge offers guests a selection of wines and craft cocktails designed by the award-winning beverage team at SLS. Above the bar hangs the main feature, a collection of coiled wire fabric systems by Cascade Architectural, creating a chic layered effect.

“Our team needed decorative architectural drapery that aligned with our design vision in terms of material type and color—both of which we were able to realize with Fabricoil,” says Nancy Paolino, Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Innovativo Design, designer and architect of record.

CASBAR’s above-bar feature was created using aluminum Fabricoil® in two different weave sizes, 3/8” and 1/2”, all with 15-gauge wire. The ceiling treatments are secured using Custom Curved Steel Angle with Hooks attachment systems offered by Cascade Architectural. Innovativo Design chose a Satin Gold powder-coated finish—ideal for Las Vegas ambience and the architects’ desired desert theme.

“The shape and color of the Fabricoil component was inspired by original Sahara motif,” adds Paolino. “We were pleased to work with a manufacturer who was able to accommodate us and our design concept.”

Fabricoil provides a sleeker look compared to traditional, rigid metal mesh products. Its flexible and formable construction makes it ideal for projects requiring a layered, free-flowing, or lightweight installation. And although lightweight, the durable metals used to create Fabricoil systems ensure that Cascade Architectural projects maintain their beauty for decades. As an added benefit, the material tends to shed dust and does not require constant cleaning or maintenance.

In addition to their decorative purpose, the Fabricoil ceiling treatments also serve as stylish light diffusers. The coiled wire fabric intercepts light casted down from the ceiling to dim and diffuse throughout the bar area, creating a comfortable environment for guests below.

CASBAR Lounge at SLS Las Vegas was completed in May 2019.
