Queen of the Curve,” the late architect will be remembered for her bold, fluid designs. She is one of my favorite women in architecture.
I almost did step into the world of architecture. I had got an opportunity to spend a week in Columbia University to see if architecture was something I would be interested in. But it wasn’t for me. I have always been fascinated with creation and creating things. I thought at some point chemistry was something that will help me create to what I wanted to create. Loved equations, experiments, science. But then even that didn’t move my soul. And I finally ended up with textiles and art my soul and passion. Architecture and textiles have a lot in common. One of them being both are 3 dimensional. The love for architecture never left me as the architect of my life lived within me. Hence, I became the architect of my own life.
“Up to even twenty years ago people did not anymore believe in what I always call the fantastic, they did not think that world is possible – some people still don’t think it’s possible – and, it is!” Zaha Hadid
Healthcare/ Clinical Fabrics:
The permanent bio-active functional fabrics by DELIUS offer freshness and hygienic cleanliness. Silver ions which are firmly embedded in the fibre stop the growth of bacteria both within and outside the fibre. They thus protect against infections like MRSA in hospitals. DELICARE fabrics also reduce the formation of odours caused by microbes.
Frequent washing does not reduce the function unlike with normal finishes. This is typical for DELIUS: the function is contained in the yarn and is not subsequently imposed by a finishing process; this also holds true for the flame retardancy.

Flame retardant textiles
According to the relevant norms all textiles delivered by DELIUS are permanently flame retardant. For all furnishing and upholstery fabrics DELIUS uses high quality yarns made from Polyester FR or Trevira CS. Textiles made out of these fibres contain a built-in safety feature. DELIUS textiles offer long-term protection, unlike fabrics which have been subsequently treated with chemicals. This small but relevant difference results from the chemical construction of the polyester fibre: the flame retardant properties are firmly enclosed in the fibre. They cannot be changed by exterior influences.

National and international flame retardancy norms
One is obliged to use flame retardant fabrics in almost all public buildings. These safety regulations, for example, apply to the public areas of hotels, schools, kindergartens, office buildings, caring homes and cinemas.The fire risk in buildings can be lowered substantially by these governmentally prescribed measures. Textiles by DELIUS fulfil the most important flame retardancy norms worldwide.DELIUS cooperates with various laboratories in order to carry out burning tests, in order to issue test reports, to obtain building inspection approvals and to organize certificates. On our Internet site you will find the relevant certificates for every article.
