Recent Interior Design trends in UAE follows either a closed gypsum ceiling or an open ceiling concept for the interiors of offices, cafés, retails & restaurants, etc
What is Closed Gypsum Ceiling or Suspended Ceiling?
Closed ceilings are created using panels, tiles or suspended plain gypsum boards.
Suspended gypsum ceilings are sometimes referred to as dropped ceilings or false ceilings. As their name implies, they are suspended from the structure above which is usually a roof or slab. This creates a space between the underside of the structure and the upper surface of the ceiling.
Suspended gypsum ceilings are hung from brackets fixed to the underside of the roof or slab. These brackets support the series of interlocking metal sections, forming a grid system where panels are fitted. These gypsum ceiling tiles can be removed to access the ducts and pipes above and in the case of a plain ceiling, access panels are provided for easy & frequent access to the top part.
Even though closed gypsum ceiling makes a room seem smaller than it actually is, gypsum ceilings can effectively conceal visual imperfections including ductwork, pipes and wires & don’t affect the performance of MEP installations. This type of ceiling allows easy access to the systems above for easier maintenance & often has lower energy costs. Lighting Fixtures can be fitted as per the size of the panels as well.
Closed ceiling are decorated using bulkheads, cornice moldings, decorative ceiling tiles, strip lights, spot lights, chandelier, hanging lights, etc. Aluminium ceiling tiles are used in kitchen ceiling

What is Open Ceiling or Exposed Ceiling?
Open ceiling one of the latest trend in ceiling interior design in UAE. Open ceiling gives every interior space an industrial appearance with its unfinished look which makes it favorable in many applications of design and the total architecture of the space. Open ceilings give an office more height and hence make it more spacious with an effect of extra space even in a crowded room. They increase natural light in your space. Bringing natural light using exposed ceiling at office interiors makes employees healthier, more productive, and more engaged. Natural light enhances the value of a space by making it more appealing to employees and customers and add character to an office. Natural light enhances the value of the space by making it more appealing to employees and customers.
All the Structural systems and MEP systems of the space are left exposed with their normal color or they are painted with suitable colors as per design. The unfinished look of an exposed ceiling is actually the result of skilled labor. At many existing buildings with suspended ceilings, the old ductwork and plumbing are usually dirty and will not be aesthetically pleasing. The ducts and pipes are painted to complement the rest of the space, which requires specialized labor to achieve a nice exposed look. Exposed ceilings require frequent cleaning and repainting. But that should never make you not make that chic interior space that’s welcoming all employees, customers, and visitors.
This is the ceiling works done for one of our Client’s office in Abu Dhabi.
When you look at the site condition before the ceiling work, you can see that the room had the benefit of natural light coming out from 2 adjacent walls with glass window opening. Sufficient cross ventilation made this room an ideal spot for bringing a mix of both open & closed ceiling concept.
The client needed the ceiling to be closed but keep an industrial look and well-lit environment, so ceiling was painted white and hanging lights were provided on the close ceiling. The ceiling added more height and HVAC ducts were remodified and are visible giving an industrial look, but not compromising on bringing the interior elements including the hanging lights.
