Maison Manuvie, located at 900 de Maisonneuve West, in the heart of downtown Montreal, is a building completed in 2017. This 27-floor Class AAA office building is developed by Ivanhoé Cambridge and co-owned with Manulife.
Working with artist Lozano-Hemmer on his interactive Colorimeter, SACO adorned the impressive artwork on the wall of the main lobby of Maison Manuvie with 1020 V-Tiles, arranged in a grid pattern with a customized diffused material applied to the front. The perimeter glow is achieved using Shockwave’s V-Stick. SACO Shockwave V-Sticks come in two sizes, 300mm and 500mm, to cover most installation scenarios. The perimeter used a total of one hundred and two 300mm SACO V-Sticks and twenty 500mm SACO V-Sticks.
