Corsica & Capri by Vescom

Vescom’s ever expanding portfolio has recently seen the addition of two new transparent, acoustic curtain fabrics: Corsica and Capri.

Vescom have their own weaving mill and for these collections they’ve decided to use different yarns to add texture, a play between matt and shiny. Both of these new designs are a natural enhancement to the three existing transparent, acoustic fabrics: Carmen, Marmara and Formoza.

With these fabrics, Vescom not only welcomes two acoustic fabrics with excellent sound-reducing values (alphaw 0.65); Corsica and Capri also look stylish and come into their own in an open space. Regardless of whether this space is a hotel lobby, meeting room or an office environment. What really sets the curtain fabrics apart is the fact that they’re translucent – a factor that seems at odds with sound absorption. The fabrics are so light and translucent that they connect, rather than divide, space. Corsica and Capri are also extremely soft yet strong and high performing.Vescom 2018Corsica: natural linen look Corsica proves that aesthetics and functionality can be combined. Despite the high acoustic value, the floor-to-ceiling fabric has a friendly textile feel with a soft linen look. In addition, this fabric creates a comfortable mood to ease any room. Corsica characterises a beautiful blended effect, is available in a wide range of natural colours and can be perfectly combined with other linen-like fabrics.

Capri: functional elegance Curtain fabric Capri brings a room alive, while providing acoustic benefits to ease the ambient feel and level of comfort, exactly as Corsica does. The fabric has a pleasant and smooth texture while offering a chic look and offers a pallet of colours of special metallic tints such as bronze, silver and platinum.Vescom 2018Functional properties Vescom’s acoustic curtain fabrics are floor-to-ceiling and therefore can be made up without seams. They are lightfast, colourfast, fire retardant, safe, functional, durable and, in many cases, washable at high temperatures. All fabrics are Oeko-Tex certified.
