Curtains with Magnetic Technology

A curtain is a piece of cloth intended to block or obscure light, for instance at night to aid sleeping, or to stop light from escaping outside the building (stopping people outside from being able to see inside, often for privacy reasons). Florian Kräutli a design student at Eindhoven had a very clever idea when he made the Magnetic Curtain, a curtain which you can shape to any form”, magnets embedded in the curtain fabric allow the user to shape the curtain innumerable ways, both open and closed. Embedding hundreds of evenly dispersed tiny magnets into a grid of prefab folds allows for the easy manipulation of the silhouette or strategically modifying exposure for light and/or privacy. – Via – Yankodesign & Moco Loco

    I think that the idea is remarkable and unique and if some has a difficulty to make the room more brighter then this invention is more than helpful. As a Toronto realtor I`m very delighted by the new practical ideas but I prefer to combine with decorativeness. That curtain doesn`t represent me the beauty now but with minor alterations I think that it could be a very impressivel part of the home. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Yes, you are right, the curtain doesn`t impress with the beauty, but I’m sure that if a designer could take a look at this idea, this curtain would look awesome.

    Hey what a cool idea! Magnetic Curtians??? I posted a link to your site http://freshome.com/ on my blog http://freshome.com/. I was in the process of trying to find new fun ways to redesign my house and really like several of the articles you have, such as the “Book Case Table”. I also included another great site called http://www.homefurnituremart.com/ that offers quality furniture at affordable price. Many of the products will compliment the suggestions you have mentioned on your site! Please feel free to take a look at my blog and comment if you like.

    I can’t believe this “Fact is that more and more people are suffering from sleep disorders caused by stress and high anxiety levels.”
