With hexagonal shapes that mimic the look of chemical bonds, this geometric ceiling example invokes motion, connectivity and interaction. Its continuous pattern makes it scalable and effortlessly sleek. In addition, this design utilizes our Vapor® system, making the ceiling feel geometric without needing separate tiles.

2. A Classic Diamond Pattern with Sporadic Solids for Added Effect

Nothing is boring or standard about a Vapor® Cora ceiling design. It’s jaw-dropping and designed specifically to turn heads and make an impact. In this example, the geometric ceiling seems to melt down the walls to create a completely immersive visual experience. 

3. Fragmented Hexagons Create a Chic Geometric Illusion

“Hospitality Common Area” Featuring: VaporHue™ Link by Arktura

This geometric ceiling has a three-dimensional cube effect thanks to its VaporHue™ Link printed and perforated aluminum panels. The fragmented hexagon patterning uses illusion to bring cohesion and depth to this space, showing how impactful subtle geometry can be. 

4. Patterned Triangle Cloud Baffles with Innovative Integrated Light Bars

Who says geometric ceiling tiles can’t have movement? This geometric ceiling uses the SoftGrid® Wave system to make the ceiling seem alive with a wave effect. And now, for larger jobs, the addition of SoftGrid® Max options allows you to do it all while maximizing value and minimizing the impact on the environment. 

These expansions add variant options for openness and size for each design, extending each space’s possibilities.

6. Elegant Hexagonal Cloud Baffles in Three Dimensional Arrangement

“Dimensional Lobby” Featuring: SoftShapes™ Hex cloud baffles by Arktura

7. Install Your Own Geometric Pattern with Arranged Multi-colored Cloud Baffles

“Quiet Library” Featuring: SoftGrid® Deca by Arktura“Patterned Workspace” Featuring: SoftGrid® Deca by Arktura

These multi-colored SoftGrid® Deca cloud baffles are an excellent way to provide dimensional geometry to any space. With their inverted hexagonal shape, these cloud baffles can easily combine to create a complex geometric ceiling. 

8. Make Light Your Geometric Paint Brush

“Soft Workspace” Featuring: SoftSpan® 24 by Arktura

Using lighting is a powerful way to elevate a geometric ceiling pattern. In this example, the SoftSpan® 24 baffle system already creates the look of a tightly coffered ceiling. By backlighting every other square, this coffered ceiling now has an additional geometric layer that mimics the look and feel of a modern checkerboard. This system achieves the trellis look without the weight and cost associated with real wood trellis systems.

9. Take Geometry to the Third Dimension with Acoustic Baffles

“Mission Veterinary Partners” Southfield, MI, Davis & Davis (Architect), Featuring: SoftFold® by Arktura

This example shows the power of a minimalist and focused design. With one section of SoftFold® acoustic baffles, this ceiling was transformed into a three-dimensional geometric piece of art. It goes to show how thoughtfully incorporating a functional element can also elevate a design.

“High-Arched Lobby” Featuring: SoftShapes™ Quad cloud baffles by Arktura

With dozens of sizes, depths and thickness options, this commercial space really utilizes the versatility of the SoftShapes™ cloud baffles. 

11. Trust in Triangles for Powerful Geometric Patterning

“Neustar” Reston, VA, Garrett Rowland Photography, HKS Architects (Architect), Featuring: TriSoft® ceiling system by Arktura

Want to break the rules? Add a touch of abstraction to geometry. Go with the TriSoft® ceiling system to create an array of three-dimensional triangles. To take it a step further, you can play with completely different shapes with the flooring to create an impactful geometric haven. 

12. Loosen Symmetry for Engaging Ceiling Panels
