New Zealand company Kaynemaile has won Best Architectural Product at the NYCxDesign Awards, announced 20 May.

Kayne Horsham, inventor of Kaynemaile – an innovative polycarbonate architectural mesh for building exteriors and interiors – accepted the award at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Kaynemaile is currently exhibiting in the centre of New York’s Times Square with a 4.25 metre high, 40 square metre walk-though “touch and see” installation called #WaveNewYork.

The one million interlocking rings forming the installation were created using Kaynemaile’s liquid state manufacturing process at its Petone, Wellington design studio and factory.

#WaveNewYork has been designed by Kayne Horsham and American artist and MacArthur fellow Ned Kahn, who are also currently working on a dramatic art installation, to be unveiled this summer in New York.

“We’re honoured to be in the heart of New York bringing the freedom and joy embodied in our design to over a million New Yorkers and visitors from throughout America and the world in Times Square,” comments Kayne.

“New York and New Zealand are global centres of innovation and leaders in design. The NYCxDesign Award for Best Architectural Product perfectly supports our U.S. market entry,” he says.
