The Florentinum, Prague

Case Study
The curved glass façade created challenges for the management of light and shade and the need to ensure the optimum comfort for users. The TESS™ 400 external system was chosen and aligned to the structural glass design. It uses relieving rollers to allow the blind to flow around the curve and small ultra-thin cable to keep the fabric tensioned. When fitted to the external façade of the Florentinum it allowed the architectural effect of the curve to remain striking even when the blinds were deployed, as well as working as a heat shield on hotter days.
