Its patented unobtrusive frame makes this an attractive element for use in providing improved quality of artificial and natural lighting, with acoustic properties. New design preferences for using illuminated textile surfaces open up a wide range of innovative applications for architects, lighting and general interior designers. Shortcomings of other factors – for example, poor functionality or climatic deficiencies – can be compensated for by well-designed lighting and sound ambiences.


Adjustable, highly translucent ceiling and wall units, lamps and ceiling panels. Acoustic ceilings, diverse membrane structures and facade concepts.


Full access to the plenum by local maintenance staff. The thinnest of joint-lines are virtually shadow-free, providing uniform light distribution. Durable, color-fast, wrinkle-free stretched-membrane is VOC free and Fire rated. Modules and 2-ply which are dustproof and also act as sound absorbers.
