One of the latest of the many design projects we’ve worked on recently was a commercial project in the Metro Plaza Center in Reston. It’s a dramatic steel and glass building. Home by Eva brought the finishing touches to the meeting rooms with double-sided privacy draperies. But these aren’t just any draperies, these are mounted on state-of-the-art Swiss-engineered track draperies.
In 1952, a Swiss engineer developed the first silent curtain track system that became the basis for this new type of curtain system, termed “Silent Gliss”. The term literally means: Silent, “without sound” and Gliss, short for the musical term “glissando”, meaning when one note slides to the next. It’s almost musical, or theatrical, in its smooth and silent functioning.
Using the ultra-sophisticated technology of the Silent Gliss track, we installed a hand operated track system, with custom made double-sided privacy draperies for the glass walled meeting rooms that allows for privacy during meetings, but keeping an elegant appearance in and out of the rooms.
The Silent Gliss system works both in commercial and domestic spaces. We highly recommend this system to our clients with oversized glass windows in your office, home or apartment. And when its combined with your personal fabric choices we can create a space that is both highly functional and contemporary to fit your style.
