Giving shade and joy to children - The I-SYS rope support system

A sea of fantastic shapes

Keep your eyes open... for so many great shapes. Today, London was and is a centre of culture and modern healing methods. The Moorfield Eye Hospital, the world's largest children's eye clinic, combines both. Aluminium slats hang down from an I-SYS stainless steel cable suspension from CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE as an eye-catcher on the façade.

The Moorfield Eye Clinic's history dates back to the year 1805. For more than 200 years it has been caring for children suffering from eye diseases. Not only the treatment but also the education is very important in the clinic. Renowned eye specialists have learned and taught here over the centuries. Among the patrons of Queen Victoria was one of the patrons of the clinic.

Aesthetic shapes thanks to the I-SYS rope support system

The fact that the current managers of the clinic are not only excellent doctors and aesthetes, but also have a good sense of humour is proven by the numerous "eye-catchers" on the façade. If you look up from below at the I-SYS stainless steel cables, you can see different interpretations, just like with a work of art.

The facade, which is child-friendly and invitingly designed, consists of I-SYS stainless steel cables suspended from aluminium slats. The practical thing is, during the day they provide shade, in the evening they are colourfully illuminated.

Practical and artistic variety

We from CARL STAHL ARCHITECTURE are always pleased when our products are not only of practical use, but are also allowed to present their artistic and aesthetic advantages. That is why we are convinced that our products ...

  • XTEND stainless steel mesh,
  • XLED light module systems,
  • GREENCABEL planting systems and our
  • POSILOCK rope suspension systems

... different artists can inspire to extraordinary works.

Like a flock of birds hovering in the air, the aluminium slats float outside the windows of the Moorfield Eye Hospital. The 10 millimetre thick I-SYS stainless steel cables fit organically into the architectural work of art.
