The cassette’s back in

Launching this month, Benchmark Kreate has developed a metal cassette facade system, fully integrated within an insulated panel. The system allows architects to create facades that can go from one shade to an almost limitless range of colours. Differently sized and finished cassettes can also be combined into the single integrated base panel to increase facade variations even further – and can achieve U-values as low as 0.13W/m2K. To give the product a contemporary feel, the firm has rounded the edges, adopting the aesthetics of the Mac keyboard, beloved of the design world. Who ever thought we’d be creating digital-effect, pixellated designs from the humble cassette?
