J&C Joel manufactured and installed more than 10,000 square metres of overlapping Jomeleon swags to dress the ceiling of the Multi Purpose Hall (MPH) of the Arena & Convention Centre Liverpool.

The 75 metre by 50 metre Multi Purpose Hall has a capacity of 5,000 people and can be split into four sections via moveable acoustic walls and doors. The bespoke ceiling swags measure 20m x 6m and were made from blue Jomeleon, which was chosen specifically for its striking appearance.

When pleated or backlit Jomeleon shows fantastic iridescent qualities. The fabric is perfect for masking the pipes and ducts of the MPH’s ceiling and helps to present the hall as a viable venue for staging corporate events, conferences, seminars and live performances.

J&C Joel designed the arrangement to create an overlapping, shimmering canopy of colour extending from the hall’s central lighting gantry. When not in use the swags are stored in custom made storage bags secured to the gantry and can be easily deployed and secured to the facing walls using bungees combined with the eyelets sewn into each end of the drapes.
