Origami Ceiling

Usually when “cool” and “drop ceiling” share a sentance, they are conjoined by the word “not,” as in “Drop ceilings are not cool.” Sustainable design firm MIO has changed that. I’ve seen other designy ceiling tiles, but none as elegant as these. I’m not sure how durable the material is (send me a design sample, MIO?), but they not only look great, they even fit in standard drop ceiling frames, and they’re affordable ($98 for twenty-four 2′x2′ tiles from one of four invertible patterns). I’m not sure what they envision you doing with lights, vents, etc., but I’m ready to do a little stealth redecorating here late one night…
