The Stratosphere Tower
Las Vegas

Ferragallo monoscopic designs were chosen for
the main entranceway and and in the main casino
at one of the most striking and innovative buildings
in the world and the tallest building west of the Mississippi:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

...pure space where visible forms will materalize and release themselves--forms
that are suspended, floating, hovering, poised, driving backward and forward--
near enough to touch and far enough away to escape into the void.
The first use of this concept awaits a visionary architect, contractor or
designer with the courage to employ the first architectural scale
stereoscopic mural in the world.

Ferragallo interactive surfaces present new and exciting opportunities for interior design.

Ferragallo walls flower into richly articulated visual space and create sentient contexts
for architectural interiors. They present spatial fields that expand surface planes into
volumetric space, extending the design contexts of commercial theme, place and purpose
into personal human scale dimension. Dental and pediatric health care units, in particular,
present two design contexts that are well-suited for Ferragallo Interactive orientations.

Ferragallo Interactive surfaces provide a new conceptual and contextual vision for
architectural interiors: a vision that alters the perception of walls and ceilings as
physical barriers. Human-scale depth-oriented design frees architectural interior
space from rigid enclosure contexts.

Color and pattern morphing effects offer creative options for designers of arcades,
theater lobbies, amusement parks and public service facilities. Ferragallo Interactive
designs are available in easy to install back-lit units. Ferragallo LightCarpets™
change their color and pattern, according to viewer advantage, and convey
information to pedestrians more efficiently.

Ferragallo geometries expand architectural interiors dramatically. Every change in
viewing distance complements their virtual scale. Wall areas affect viewer space
axially as well as peripherally. At any scale: 10-by-50 feet, 20-by-100 feet, or
even greater, spanning broad corporate interiors, hotel lobbies, malls, auditoriums,
civic centers, and transportation terminals, Ferragallo designs are aesthetically
and intellectually breathtaking.

Ferragallo Interactive designs are available on a variety of modular substrates.
