Mehler Coated Technical Textiles supplied large quantities of coated fabric for the 2015 Milan Expo.
The major application was for sun shading the two main axes of the Expo. The 85,000 sqm of fabric was essentially planar rectangular panels attached to opposing valley and ridge cables.
One important concept behind the simple forms was the re-use of the fabric following the Expo.
Other projects included:
- Iranian Pavillion (2,500 sqm)
- Ferreo Pavillion (1,600 sqm)
- Institution Bologna Pavillion (4,500 sqm)
- Tent at the entrance (6,000 sqm)
