Interior Design Specialists Alessia Tudor Ltd approached us to work on a complex but stunning Cat B fitout concept for a confidential client situated near Kensington High Street.
With the focus on a modern office interior and a strong nod to the companies’ history in the plan, the design gave our Specification Team the opportunity to get creative.
A combination of motorised and manual roller blinds with high performance metallised fabrics were required to provide excellent glare and heat gain control, whilst still maintaining a view to the outside.
Furthermore, a decorative feature throughout parts of the office was also included in the brief; something that would add a ‘wow factor’ to the space.
With that in mind, our Specification Team specified our DrapeTech Coil Mesh to be suspended on v-hangers and vertical rods, fixed via an aluminium U-channel profile in a black powdercoat finish throughout much of the office space.
The colour of the mesh itself was a combination of Light Bronze, Fire and Pale Gold, to provide a stunning finish that really grabs the attention of anyone entering the space.
The varying colours and heights of the mesh created a luxurious feel in the office, shimmering underneath the spotlights, to emphasise how decorative curtains can really transform a space.
Elsewhere, we specified our SilverScreen® metallised fabric for the roller blinds, as this is the highest performing blind fabric in our range when it comes to energy efficiency. The fabric can reflect up to 85% of solar energy entering a building through the glazing.
The five motorised blinds were powered by QMotion’s near-silent motor, complete with four pre-set intermediate stop positions, manual override and precise hembar alignment, while we specified our RBL-C chain operated systems for the remaining 61 roller blinds.
As you can see, the effect created by the coil mesh really does bring the office space to life and add a sense of grandeur.
