We offer a variety of custom curtains created using different techniques: woven, 3D woven, laser cut, zund cut curtains. The colors can be altered as well as the materials to trigger different senses and create a suitable atmosphere. Within the curtain we can orchestrate the defusing or reflecting of the sunlight, contributing to light and climate control, we can also create the visual effects of light and shadow play. In addition to that, well designed curtains will generate a desired level of privacy and a balanced acoustic ambience within the space.

A custom curtain can start from scratch, but can also transform an already existing textile:

– Creating textiles provides a unique opportunity to build up material properties from the very beginning. Starting with a single thread, technology and structure determine a very wide array of possible materials. When we also take into account properties of different yarns such as metal, recycled yarns, seaweed and elastic yarns, the possibilities are endless. Textiles range from thin to thick and opaque to transparent, monochrome to coloured, fine to rough, 2D to 3D. In recent years Studio Samira Boon has been driven to create unique products by combining advanced weaving techniques with a wide range of materials. For us the challenge of creating textures lies primarily in creating innovative structures and characters with strong visual properties as an additional result.

– Laser cut or zund cutting is a treatment that can be used on secondhand or dead-stock materials, to give the textile a new life. These options make the laser cut or zund cut curtains an environmentally friendly choice. The textile can for example be very flowy and light, to obtain a diffused light effect with dancing patterns. But it can also be a solid and sturdy fabric with a more structured pattern to obtain a sharpened look. The technique has no limitations regarding the pattern and gives the option to make a parametric, highly personalized perforated design.
