Florian Kräutli’s Magnetic Curtain. Swiss designer Kräutli, who is currently studying in the Netherlands, the design center of almost everything these days, wanted a curtain he could shape into any form.
The Magnetic Curtain can be pushed and pulled, scrunched and elongated, manipulated to your heart’s desire into open and closed arrangements, as well as everything in between. Sunlight too intense in one particular area? Just use the magnets to cover that blinding ray and open the rest of the window to allow the more pleasurable light to shine in.
But what’s more interesting, I would argue, about the Magnetic Curtain is its sculptural possibilities. In front of a window, as a room divider or wall installation, the Magnetic Curtain becomes a playground of innovation and form. It is has great decorative possibilities for spicing up an installation or short term exhibit. The maluable structure of the curtain makes it super easy to move, intsall and uninstall.
The Magnetic Curtain will be available through Droog Design
