The multi layered soffit was constructed using 3/8" bending plywood. The outer or face layer of the 3 layered soffit is an accustically clear, pleated silky black fabric, having a sub layer of a 1' thick upholsted cushioning liner. The second layer is finished in black lacquered paint with a buffed mirror finish. The third and final layer of the floating or suspended soffit is bending plywood thats finished in 18k real gold leaf having a polyester clear coat finish. For shipping, painting, transporting and installation purposes the layers were separated and re-attached at the job site. In case of any damage to the fabric or painted finishes the layers were easily dismantled using several different types of hook and locking devises that were incorporated within the design and construction of the entire soffit structure.
