View all
The curtain made of FBR - Bruxelles velvet is made of one piece only.
The disposition of the rail Kompas (an ellipse with a dead end) allows to put back the curtain along a side of the hall when it is not desired to use it.
The curtain can be made to manually flow for realizing this elegant composition, whose functional utility is that to create a small space separated by the rest of the room when it is not needed to use it.The curtain was manufactured with a gathered vertical fullness created with Ruflette, which produces very distributed folds at the top.
The manual opening of the curtain can be effected like a Traveller curtain or, like in the picture, as a Swag curtain system.
Although it doesn't have anything to see with the native destination of the building, the artifact made of velvet integrates in an extraordinary way with the environment, rewarding the happy intuition of the planner that conceived this solution.
The upper floor, that preserve the native trusses made of wood, contains now a small hall for conferences that was separated from the rest of the room with a Traveller curtain made of FBR - Bruxelles velvet.
The velvet has been selected by the designer with the identical colour to that of the elliptic curtain that was installed in the ground floor.
In Pisa, a wing of the historical Palazzo Ruschi originally used to shelter the lemon trees during the winter was readjusted to entertain public meetings of various kind.
The Limonaia is also now the center of the association for the diffusion of the scientific and technological culture to which it gives the name.
The important work of restauration that was made in the first years of 2000 gave to the building and to the garden the native shine.
