Anchoring the World’s Largest Indoor Aquarium

Móz Designs has Columns Móz Designs teams up with PGAV Destinations for new Georgia Aquarium expansion

 

After a two-year renovation, award-winning metal expert, Móz Designs , is excited to announce their inclusion in Georgia Aquarium’s new shark gallery. Located in the largest indoor aquarium in the world, the Georgia Aquarium’s new one million-square-foot expansion breaks its own record by a landslide. Setting the tone for the new exhibition, nine of Móz’s Engraved columns support a sweeping overhang at the entrance, immersing visitors within the underwater experience. Specified by St.
Louis-based firm PGAV Destinations, the Current-patterned columns are reminiscent of sea kelp with  their wavy engraved texture and glisten like sunlight reflecting off the ocean.

 

"We enjoyed the challenge of transforming solid metal into organic wave-like columns for Georgia Aquarium," says Móz Designs co-founder, Tripp Sandford. "Applications like this truly demonstrate all the things you can do with all of our metal options."

 

Designed to accommodate Georgia Aquarium’s two million visitors per year, the columns are built to withstand high-traffic and heavy-duty cleaners, especially as more Americans resume indoor activities over the next year. Rolled from 0.090-inch solid-core aluminum and spanning more than 14 feet high, the columns are ready to support attendees while maintaining a good-as-new appearance.

 

A custom Aqua Blue Gloss was uniquely created to imitate the columns’ aquatic surroundings. Complete with etched silver pinstripes and a hand grain finish, the installation maximizes durability and quality design. Produced in Móz’s Oakland factory, each column arrived ready for installation, saving precious time in the field.
