The mechanics of the hanging system have been refined over and over again by the designers until the absolute minimum required material and skill were achieved. This is a purposefully elementary product. ‘The ambition was to create a new system that allows anyone to install a quality curtain in record time.,’ note Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.
The ingenuity of the hanging cord – a replacement for the traditional curtain pole – is found in the hanging mechanism that can be mounted either on the wall or ceiling: ‘The starting point was a picture in a Japanese book from the fifties. The book was a catalogue of objects and in it was a guitar. From there, we began to explore the system of string tension in guitars.’, the designers explain.
The cord is an efficient and elegant solution to hanging a curtain. It can be rewound when need be, in order to maintain the right tension, and is easily transferable from window to window.‘One of the the ambitions of our work with Kvadrat is to bring more fabric into interiors. The difference between this and previous products is that here we chose not to do any intervention on the fabric. The system is very simple, we have used the lightest touch.’ Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
