Russian 3D ceilings

Russian 3D ceilings 1

In Russia suspended ceiling is not only a stylish element of the flat interior, it can simply save your dwelling from flood made by the careless neighbors living above. Like in this case the practice shows that it is able to gather and hold all the water. Now the question is how to pour it off safely. But just imagine you wake up one morning and your ceilings look like this!

  1. What an amazing ceiling material. What is it? Is there a normal solution to removing the water? When the water is removed, does the material shrink back to it’s original position?

  2. This is well-known material for renovating your ceiling. You stretch the flexible ‘fabric’ between the walls and you can even hang lamps on it etc.

    This is a new utilization. 🙂

  3. We had this kind of cieling in Mexico. It was as nice though, but I do remember it collecting water from the leaks in our roof. It never got that full though, and the rest of our appartment wasn’t as nice as the house in that picture. I am pretty sure that the suspended cielings we had were made of fabric(manta) that was painted. The cieling above that was made of bambo with cement poured on top (the bambo was only to hold up the cement while it dried).

  4. it looks really really ugly, but I’m sure it works. But damn, I can imagine myself walking around at night with the lights off and bumping my head badly on one of those.

    • Very interesting. From your link and the one below, this appears to be a building material we may see more of. Would it not be better to return to your flat and find the ceiling sagging under the weight of Sarah’s bathwater, or find everything soaked and ruined? If the water can be safely removed, replacement of the ceiling would seem cost effective.

  5. I simply can’t believe that those pictures are real. Look at them again and get a feeling for the vast amount of water they must be holding.

  6. I think it might be real.

    I have seen this type of rubber-sheet inner roofing in Sweden, believe it was popular around 1970s. Makes the roof perfectly non cracked and smooth. And since it is rubber it might look like this when the water leaks from above. Does not have to be enormous amounts either, I think two buckets of water in each bulge will suffice.

    Kind regards

    • These pictures are real. The water leaked from heat pipes above (so it was hot and rusty), which makes the story even more interesting.

      In fact, you don’t have to replace that kind of ceiling after such incidents. After the water is removed, they detach the plastic material from the walls, dry everything, reattach the plastic and heat it up with hot air. It restores its original size and the stretchings are gone. The spec says that it is capable to bear up to 100 liters of water per square meter.

    • Old bulidings usually have inner roofing by big paper-sheets. The plastic type is commonly used for replacing cracked paper-sheets because these paper-sheets is difficult to get nowadays..

  7. How small can the reply thread get? Thats great. Can someone point me to a blog about russia, in english, where reading the comments wont be a waste of my time?

  8. Claims of “Fake!” or “Photoshop!” are nearly always shorthand for “I’m so small-minded and self-centered that I can’t imagine anything beyond my own narrow experience.” The ceilings are made of sheets of PVC stretched on a perimeter frame, most likely made by a French company, Barrisol. You can see a video an installation with a similar problem on their website.

  9. I am a painter and decorator from Australia and i can assure you that there is no product on the market which would allow your cieling to have this affect after water leaking from an apartment above. these photos are obviously photoshopped

    • I think the drag marks you refer to are actually a reflection from the bowls of water underneath, which are visible in a different shot

  11. Are you all freaks here or what?! The water pipe of the upper neighbours had broken, and all water leaked through the ceiling and gathered in a so called Stretch Ceiling System, that the owners had installed before. So there is no photoshop or whatever, it is just water.

  17. What an amazing ceiling material. What is it? how the ceiling material is it . the picture will edit in the photo shop i think .how its possible the ceiling material will be strong only its possible.

  18. What surprises me is that all that nice looking furniture still are in those rooms. Ah, maybe no one dare to remove it 🙂

  19. Definitely remarkable ! I have just ordered a cellular app progress at codingate, they easily determined genuine serious and more than cost-effective developpers who designed the item in couple of nights!!mobile – telecom and voip – net – desktop applications .
