Arktura’s Vapor® wall and ceiling panel system is an innovation in modern expression.
Through abstract patterns and subtle complexity, the perforated metal panels add visual interest and functionality to a space. Our library of patterns ensures that you’ll find the perfect design to make a statement while leaving a lasting impression.
But now, we’ve gone even further.
Arktura has recently introduced a new line to our Vapor® collection that blends the beauty of wallpaper and the innovation of perforated metal panels to create a one-of-a-kind design experience.
VaporHue™ is an innovative line of torsion spring wall and ceiling panels specifically designed to bring stunning dimensionality to a space and add aesthetic beauty and superior functionality by incorporating lighting and acoustic backing to enhance comfort.
From Wallpaper to Panels
Since its arrival in the form of rice paper pasted to walls during the Qin dynasty in China, wallpaper has been a popular choice for centuries. Wallpaper has seen its ups and downs throughout the years — sometimes seen as a status symbol in the homes of the wealthy and other times accused of being a cheap imitation of tapestries or a tool of deception, hiding imperfections and altering the appearance of the room’s dimensions. Despite its longevity in the world of design, it remains largely unchanged — after all, it’s just paper pasted onto a wall.
As we get farther into the 21st century, it’s time for a modern upgrade. Sturdier than wallpaper and with a modern twist, printed and perforated patterning in torsion spring panels is shaking up the world of design.
Building on the idea of using wallpaper as a way to add depth and movement to a space, VaporHueTM panels have increased design flexibility and come with added features like InLine lighting, backlighting and the option to add Soft Sound® acoustic backing material to enhance comfort both visually and acoustically.
Let’s take a closer look at the five distinctive lines in the VaporHue™ collection.
Flora Stuns With Biophilic Beauty
Evoke a biophilic floral landscape with VaporHue™ Flora. The feathering perforations act as a base to dual-color organic printing that flows seamlessly across panels and through the space. With Flora, you’ll create a space that is alive with possibilities, even as it is grounded in nature.
To take this biophilic design to another level, you can add a third layer of color and acoustic comfort with a Soft Sound® acoustic backer to reduce noise. Or if your design calls for extra lighting, illuminating the space is effortless with our integrated backlighting and InLine lighting options.
Astra Delivers Fast-Paced Energy
VaporHue™ Astra’s linear perforations and printed patterning add a sense of fast-paced movement, creating energy and excitement. Perfect for a space meant to inspire and excite, these aluminum torsion spring panels achieve uninterrupted patterning, never slowing as they race across the wall.
Where light is needed, you can add backlighting or InLine lighting for the perfect amount of illumination. You can also add another layer of color and enhance the acoustic comfort of the space with a Soft Sound® backer, available in a wide range of colors that stun when paired with the Arktura White panels.
Stitch Weaves Through the Space
Designed with bi-directional linearity, VaporHue™ Stitch weaves a stunning pattern that will impress all guests. A playful take on symmetry, this line of printed and perforated aluminum torsion spring panels creates a seamless transition from wall to ceiling, stitching the space together.
Adding backlighting or a Soft Sound® backer will help you meet the acoustic and illumination needs of the space. This design makes use of both to create the perfect environment for productivity. For extra noise control, an optional acoustic Soft Sound® backer gives you both an incredible pattern and reduces sound.
Pop Rounds Out Large Rooms
Reminiscent of classical printing methods and the pop art of the 1960s, VaporHue™ Pop blends perforated circles and a combination of solid and finely dithered printed dots to create a modern twist on a classic, fun style. This design supports one printed pattern hue, but the dithered dots create the impression of added depth and a range of colors.
Integrated backlighting makes Pop even more breathtaking, illuminating the stunning printed solid and dithered circles and providing the light needed to create a comfortable and efficient space.
Link Brings the Geometric Vibes
The fragmented hexagon perforations and printing of VaporHue™ Link create a three-dimensional cube effect that transfixes all who are lucky enough to see it. Bringing elegant depth to a space, this innovative blend of perforations and printing adds a dynamic effect.
As the panels seamlessly transition from one to another, you can add definition through a creative mix of backlighting and Soft Sound® acoustic backing. In this design, the alternating use of light and backing highlights the pattern and its ability to flow through the space.
