Product description

Dawn 2 is a dim-out curtain created by Barcelona-based designer Cristian Zuzunaga. It offers an updated colourscale, as well as excellent drapeability and light protection. Constructed with three layers, the textile’s dim-out effect is provided by weaving a black dim-out yarn between the front and back sides.

Dawn 2 is piece-dyed and has an even, unicoloured surface. In the lighter colourways, the black dim-out yarn subtly emerges from the surface of the curtain.

Cristian Zuzunaga collected items from nature, such as fallen leaves, for the refreshed colour-scale. He looked at them after it rained and, again, once they were dry. Reflecting this, some of the colours have a more pronounced sheen than others.

Dawn 2 is ideal for environments where a darkening effect is desired, such hotel rooms and private bedrooms.

Performance
  • LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

    ISO 105-B02

    Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

    The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

  • Visual light transmission {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightTransmission}}%

    Light transmittance indicates the percentage of the visible light penetrating the textile. Densely woven textiles in dark colours usually have a lower light transmittance, whereas loosely woven fabrics in light colours allow more light to pass through. 

  • Absorption 0.45/Class D (Absorption flat) 0.65/Class C (Absorption folded)

    EN ISO 354

    Acoustic absorption is indicated as αw-value which approximately corresponds to the percentage of sound absorbed. For instance, an αw-value of 0,4 translates into 40% absorption of sound.  Acoustic absorption of a textile is measured in its flat and draped state.

  • Airflow 1931 Pa s/m

    EN ISO 9053-1

    Airflow resistance influences the sound absorbing qualities of a textile. Typically, the denser the construction of the textile, the higher the value.

    There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

Care instructions curtain textiles

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the curtain textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.

  • Regular care

    If possible, we recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat and Kinnasand are supplied bearing a maintenance label. We recommend the use of a light duty detergent without optical brighteners for all items in which, according to care instructions, washing is possible. In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants. Please take into account a possible shrinkage between 1 – 3 %. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
