Dexigner feature

Extract: On Thursday, Kaynemaile has unveiled a 4 foot high, 425 square foot walk-through "touch and see" experiential installation in Times Square as part of NYCxDesign. The installation is situated on the Design Pavilion on a pedestrian-friendly plaza between 44th Street and Seventh Avenue. Kaynemaile, a revolutionary architectural and design material that is playing an integral part in NYC's infrastructure renewal projects, was invented by former Weta Workshop artistic director Kayne Horsham after his experience working with chainmail costumes on the Academy Award-winning The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Those visiting the installation will see how Kaynemaile accents the link between art & science with seamless polycarbonate architectural mesh.
