Service-oriented and needs-based, providing individual solutions and delivering innovative and practical progress: ISS is the leading provider of Facility Services in Switzerland. With a unique range of services on offer, coupled with a highly-trained workforce across a vast array of vocational groups, this successful corporation delivers services from car park management to property management to surveillance services.

To enable ISS in future to receive potential business partners in an even more appropriate setting, the company is relocating its head office to the newly constructed Westlink site on the Vulkanplatz, a large square in downtown Zurich.

A fascinating ceiling solution from durlum is incorporated in the design of the meeting rooms, sanitation facilities, the cafeteria, main forum, vestibules and corridors. Powder-coated in black and white, the styling TICELL-N metal open-cell ceiling gives these interior spaces a distinctive and special atmosphere. Thanks to a special process, the surfaces of the black and white powdercoated aluminium blades are structured in such a way that their punched edges reflect the flow of light - creating a unique look that also conveys modern, lightweight construction.

And it does far more than simply look great: With its large open 96% cross-section, the multidirectional open-cell installation vanishes effectively into the ceiling void, also ensuring that as much light as possible is able to enter the interior.
