Architecture VISION Product News 04


Modern architecture, in new and existing environments, creates customized and highly recognizable living spaces that emphasize fantastic features. Sefar’s fabrics substantially contribute to design possibilities in the area of façades as well as interior applications. Sefar's fabrics are used in remarkable buildings around the world and designers take advantage of the breadth of the Sefars' product’s diversity.  
SEFAR Architecture VISION fabric interlayers are black precision fabrics, which are laminated in a glass composite, generally with a one-sided metallic coating or additional printing, for use on façades. Double-sided coating and printing are also possible and ideal for facade fins and louvers.
SEFAR Architecture VISION fabrics lend your façade incomparable elegance and aesthetics. The combination of the metallic treatment, three-dimensionality, and virtually unlimited colour and motif design options creates a vibrant, iridescent, exciting, and irresistible look for your façade. At the same time, the fabrics positively influence the physics of the building by reducing thermal heat gain through high energy reflection. The interior, black side of the fabric ensures a clear view outside from inside the building. This is the so-called 'one-way vision effect.'
A multitude of colours and designs open up new perspectives for visual design. Here, we are presenting three, recent projects that utilized SEFAR Architecture VISION fabrics in their building envelope. These display both Sefar’s internationality as well as the versatility of SEFAR Architecture VISION fabrics.
