JASNO swings wins iF Award 2016
JASNO has just been presented with an iF Product Design Award 2016. JASNO won in the category ‘Textiles/Wall/Floor’ with its JASNO swings. These vertical louver blinds – with a twist – were developed in collaboration with GBO.
“It is a real honour to take receipt of this prestigious award for our JASNO swings,” said Jeroen Hermans, director of JASNO. “We developed this product with the idea of creating something new, based on our constant questioning whether the product could be further improved, and whether it matched the mood of the day”.
"We are also proud that an independent jury has once again awarded this international label for good design to our work. The award underlines the innovative character of JASNO, and is the ultimate confirmation of our pleasant and creative collaboration,” commented Dennis van den Beuken, director of GBO.
Vertical louver blinds with a twist
The unique element of the JASNO swings is that with a single operating chain, they can alternately be set in motion. The flowing movements of the louvers result in a harmonious and surprising 3D effect. This means you are able to adjust sunlight and privacy in your home or office with a single twist of your wrist. The swings, available in a variety of colours and louver widths, are produced from woven paper or a luxurious polyester fabric. The stitched seams on the louvers and the matt white or matt aluminium rounded-off rails give the louvers a strong, tough image that perfectly matches the JASNO collection.
