During the trade fair or at one of the numerous evening events: R+T provides an opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with colleagues, and is the ideal platform for intensive specialist discussions.
Several specialist forums and networking events ensure that contacts are made and give participants new impetus for their daily work. As a leading world trade fair, R+T is at the same time a meeting point for the sector, a trend barometer and an innovation platform.3

In addition to the major exhibitor countries, which include Italy, France and the Netherlands, the trade fair also recorded growth in 2015 from countries who were not previously represented at R+T – for example Ireland, Latvia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates and Romania. The 59,057 visitors also came from all over the world: They travelled from 131 countries. A total of 54 percent of the visitors came from abroad, 79 percent of whom came from Europe.

Roller blinds recorded the highest growth among ViS members with 14.8 per cent in 2016. A wide range of colours, designs and models permits high-quality and individual creative possibilities. “We offer three size ranges with our system and the roller blind programme is completed by the new development of roof surface roller blinds. A suitable solution is therefore available for every requirement,” said Ralf Zimmermann, Managing Director of Benthin. Every system of the manufacturer includes a corresponding choice of specific models which are distinguished by their operating options, configurations and potential uses. “The main characteristic of our systems is the impression created by the elegant and subtle design of all components, covers, cassettes and lateral guides. The systems can therefore be integrated in any window,” said Ralf Zimmermann.

Stocklot vinyl

From key rings and cases to journals and travel pouches … The new LITTLE TRUCKIN’ GOODS don’t just make life easier for their future owners but also for FREITAG’s one-off designers. The small stencils fit in neatly between the big ones that mark out the standard bags, meaning that virtually no tarp gets wasted. It’s always interesting to see what other people that have the same last name as you are doing. Its even more interesting if they are doing something cool, and in my case I can point to some Freitag brothers (Daniel & Markus) that are doing something pretty cool in Switzerland. They are making cool, and artistic bags out of recycled stuff (vinyl truck tarps, seatbelts, and bicycle inner-tubes stocklot vinyl). I like two things about the company, first the bags are made out of recycled materials, and second no two bags the company makes are the same. Since they take vinyl off trucks that often have advertisements on them, you get a different design every time.

Individual recycled freeway bags….. in Europe freight trucks are covered with removable heavy-duty vinyl tarps and stocklot vinyl. They are virtually indestructible and display various colors, logos and different degrees of patina. In 1993 the brothers Freitag, graphic designers by trade, had a bright idea and decided to turn one of these tarps into a proto-type messenger bag. The first bag was slightly crude, mis-shapen and born on their kitchen table, but they loved it anyway and the Freitag Bag was unleashed to the world. From these humble beginnings, the Freitag bag has gained a loyal following with the cogniscenti. Like snowflakes or people, no two bags are alike. Each one displays different degrees of wear, patina, colors, patterning, and if you choose, graphic remnants from the trucks they once served.

By transforming lorry tarpaulins into bags, the Freitag brothers sought to extend a product’s life cycle as much as possible. Twenty years later they decided to launch F-ABRIC, a collection of ready-to-wear clothing that rises to a new challenge: how to provide for the afterlife of a product. Clothing made with F-ABRIC can either be composted or recycled into other products. Even the buttons on F-ABRIC clothes, which can be unscrewed and reused on other garments, embody Freitag’s recycling philosophy. Designing a product from the very outset by taking into account what will happen to it after it has outlived its main function is also a challenge from a designer perspective.

Freitag Bag’s makes more than just Messenger bags, they also make wallets, purses, soccer balls, and even lap top sleeves

Far more than one of those thick books with modern layout and strangely-cropped images (which is what it appears to be on first glance). This book is a great read (even though there is only text on 1 out of 5 pages) and documents in photographs and words how the Freitag bag was developed, adopted by the masses, and used. If you want to see a product and design philosophy that is beyond “green”, this is a good place to start. Smart, very smart.

Roller blinds window curtain fabric

Fiberglass roller blind fabric is a great choice if you are after a window covering that is beautiful in its simplicity. This is because they fit very closely to the window frames and do not have a lot of excess fabric. Fiberglass roller blind fabric can also be made with a wide range of a selection of fabrics including translucent fabrics, sunscreen fabrics, and black out fabrics. Of course, the fabrics are available in a range of colors and patterns so you can choose the one that suits your home best to your taste.

Roller blinds have always been popular because of their clever control mechanism which is a continuous chain loop enabling easy and precise upward and downward adjustment. They also have a reputation for understated sophistication, but the continuing popularity of Roller blinds can be fairly attributed to the breakthrough technologyin the fabric component and most recently in the controller system hardware.

Roller blinds can now be made in contemporary textured weaves, smooth minimalist plains, translucent, screen,opaque or blockout fabrics. All of the ‘intelligent’ fabrics we use have superior solar protection and excellent insulating properties.

At Window Treatments our design team has been quick to adapt our Roller blind systems and mechanisms so that the wonderful strengths of these new fabrics can be utilised in extensive home and business applications.

Strong demand is now evident for screen fabrics in the Roller Blind range. Screen fabrics provide light filtering as opposed to light block-out so that the view can be maintained whilst at the same time light control is acheived. Screen fabrics are attractive but also very functional. Stunning Roller blinds are the ultimate in contemporary style and are perfect for controlling heat and glare with the option of maintaining your exterior vista.
