FOSI TAKES TO THE SKIES

Fiber Optic System Inc. Adds FOSI Star Ceilings as an Official Division

With the company experiencing exponential growth in star ceiling sales orders, a decision was made to create a new division under Fiber Optic Systems Inc. FOSI Star Ceilings is now the official division that designs and manufactures star ceilings. "With so much attention on the star ceiling aspect of the business, I decided that it was best to organize a separate division for star ceiling orders," says Cyr Ryan, owner and president of FOSI.


FOSI began its journey into the world of star ceilings in 1994 when it designed and manufactured the star ceiling for the first Rainforest Café in Minneapolis' Mall of America. Since then, FOSI has created over 50 star ceilings for the Rainforest Café locations alone, both in the U.S. and abroad. In recent years, FOSI opened up its design to other commercial and residential clients and has completed well over 450 additional star ceilings.

Two design aspects set FOSI aside from other star ceiling companies: a custom approach and an astronomically correct design. Flexibility in design allows the FOSI team to personalize each star ceiling for the customer. Various shapes, sizes, and even material type are available at request. Generally based on the September night sky as seen from North America, viewers enjoy the dimmed Milky Way, constellations, comets, and even shooting stars. All of these effects are achieved with the use of just one FOSI -patented illuminator. Blue fibers joining the stars of a particular constellation create a recognizable outline of the constellation. The blue fibers are lit with an additional lamp in the illuminator. A second illuminator is used for the addition of fireworks and sound effects to the night -sky scenery.

Alterations in design have occurred over the years, and the company is using its more than 30 years of experience to help home theater companies minimize labor costs. Recent changes to the design of the panel system allow for 90% of the work to be completed by the FOSI team.

Fiber Optic Systems Inc. is a manufacturer of quality custom fiber optics displays, exhibits, signage, and special effects since 1970. FOSI is located in Whitehouse Station, NJ.
