Designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and design textiles manufacturer Kvadrat join hands to simplify and romanticize the mundane chore of hanging curtains…

Brothers Ronan & Erwan are well known for their simple yet innovative solutions to various significant and seemingly inconsequential design dilemmas of everyday life. This time they hit upon the task of hanging up curtains using elementary skills and a straightforward installation.

Doing away with hi-tech mechanisms, and emulating the most popular method of fixing a poster to a wall, with a simple staple, the prêt-à-porter curtain is an effortless method of fixing fabric to window.

Replacing the traditional curtain pole with the ingenuous hanging cord, they revive the ancient winding mechanism – an efficient solution that can be rewound as the need arises, easily transferable from one window to another. The system works on the right amount of tension in the cord.

The readymade curtain kit offers a selection of 2 Kvadrat fabrics – light and semi-transparent and wooly; available in 3 different colours, with pegs, cord and the hanging mechanism to match. The colour palette varies for both fabrics ranging from white and light blue for the former to warm colours such as red, dark blue and natural shades for the woolen textiles.

The product is an attempt by the designers to create an easy DIY contemporary drapery system, whilst retaining the light and airy feel of a living space.

A highlight of this product by the Bouroullecs is the almost rustic, simple hanging mechanism without any intervention on the fabric itself. The onus of the décor thus lay on the Kvadrat fabric being used.
