Nordhavn sends a textile message

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec not only dream up textile designs for Kvadrat. They have also for the second time designed the label’s Copenhagen flagship showroom.
Ready Made Curtain by Kvadrat offers a flexible and easy-to-install curtain system with a personal touch.
Ready Made Curtain brings together all elements required to create individual design curtains: hanging mechanism and cord, pegs and a selection of Kvadrat textiles. The concept allows to choose from these elements separately, providing a multitude of possible configurations. Whether a combination in subtle tones and natural finishes or something more bold and colourful is desired, Ready Made Curtain can be freely combined to suit ones individual taste.
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 Bouroulle.
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.
Ready Made Curtain also includes a cut-to-fit fabric service where the correct length of Kvadrat fabric can be ordered from your nearby Ready Made Curtain dealer.
