Initial situation

Japanese reserve determines the mood of this room. Only a small number of supportive elements as well as plain, exposed concrete walls emphasize the architectural focus on the basic essentials. Consequently, the curtains and roller blinds were to fulfill their task of providing glare protection in a discreet manner.


Our product Shadow met the aesthic and functional requirements of the architects in an exemplary manner.
