Our shading systems – the encounter of beautiful shapes with perfect functionality

For us, textile architecture is much more than manufacturing highly sophisticated sun protection systems and high-quality umbrellas. It is the meeting point of technical expertise and aesthetic perception. Every day, at many international events and in many public spaces, our umbrellas and sail designs, winners of numerous awards, are proof that aesthetic shapes create genuine added value.
Whether in large-scale production, for an individual project, or for a single umbrella: From development to production and all the way to installation we remain flexible in responding to the wishes of our customers and quickly turn them into reality at one of our sites worldwide
In doing so we have specialized for over 20 years in researching innovative materials and developing unique technological and creative solutions. Our fabric, developed in-house, forms the basis for our textile architecture and features outstanding weather resistance, robustness, and design flexibility. Many international customers are already convinced of our excellent quality characteristics and variety.
