Woodridge, IL – October 31, 2022: Fabric Images®, an award-winning manufacturer of printed and non-printed tension fabric architecture, acoustical products, and material solutions, is proud to announce it has been awarded two ATA (formerly IFAI) International Achievement Awards for outstanding and innovative fabric environments.

IAA Awards of excellence for custom projects

The Advanced Textiles Association (formerly Industrial Fabrics Association International) is a not-for-profit trade association representing the international specialty fabrics industry that sponsors the International Achievement Awards. For more than 75 years, these awards have been recognizing the latest outstanding accomplishments in design and manufacture incorporating specialty fabrics.

Receiving the Award of Excellence in the Commercial Interiors category is a ceiling installation Fabric Images created for Resorts World Las Vegas, featuring eight 60ft long ribbon shaped fabric structures that span the retail corridor. In partnership with iWorks, Fabric Images engineered the ribbon structures out of an iridescent fabric that enhances the visual experience by reflecting color changes of the integrated lighting system. This installation also balances sound by absorbing noise within the space.

Fabric Images engineered the structure and printed custom graphics to emulate a spaceship where visitors could gather, learn, and interact with various digital displays.
