Dawn by Cristian Zuzunaga
Dawn 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 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. Dawn is ideal for environments where a darkening effect is desired, such hotel rooms and private bedrooms.
Zulu by Giulio Ridolfo
Zulu is a light, transparent curtain fabric made from Trevira CS, designed by Giulio Ridolfo. It comes in updated colours and consistently reveals surprising nuances as the light changes.
The textile is woven with an open leno-binding, which creates a pronounced texture, using fine, shiny yarns. Each colourway combines two different tones – a construction that adds depth and movement to the curtain’s expression. Intriguingly, the colour intensity increases when densely draped, and decreases in front of the window due to its open weave and transparency.
Zulu offers contrasting combinations of bright colours, as well dark metallic shades and a wide variety of natural, neutral notes. All the colourways combine with the open construction of Zulu to eye-catching effect: the colours appear to melt into each other, creating a unity.
