James Wines has developed 1 featured project with Zahner. Architects come to Zahner for the company’s commitment to developing the designer’s aesthetic to completion. Zahner worked with James Wines to develop their design into custom architectural systems, featured below.
Wrapped in a yolk-yellow nest of painted aluminum cantilevered ribbons, the Denny’s Flagship acts as a bright yellow beacon even at the center of 3 miles of neon lights. Denny’s executives are calling it the ‘Diner of the Future’.James Wines of SITE in New York was chosen to lead the design of the rebranded Denny's Flagship Diner. The team wanted to create a striking surface with visual intrigue to mark a transformation of the Denny's brand. Zahner’s Design Assist Group worked with James Wines' team of architects, designers, and executives to arrive at a custom formed aluminum surface. This material was shaped and then painted to create an undulating wave of yellow.The undulating wall appears to emerge from the flat plane. Curving lace-work falls back to the surface in an unbroken, seamless manner. This is the Denny's of the future.
