The investment will help Lego to reach a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2022 in terms of its production, as well as phase out single-use […]
We have equipped our classic Desiree Chintz with a metallized backing, thus transforming it into an energy-saving sheer with a glare and privacy function that provides sun protection similar to a sunscreen. The metallized backing reflects the sun’s rays and thus prevents the room from heating up too much. This additional feature gives the backing a silver metallic shimmer without shining through to the front. The matt fabric side faces the room and creates a cosy, homely character. Desiree Sun not only protects against the sun, but can also serve as a privacy screen which at the same time – due to its slight transparency – still gives the room enough light. Particularly noteworthy is the soft drape, which is not present in classic aluminium-vaporized articles.to the article
Extensive tests resulted in the following photometric values:
Light transmission: 25% (percentage of total visible sunlight passing through the curtain)
Light reflection: 45 %
Light absorption: 30 % (The amount of radiant energy absorbed by the curtain and converted into heat)
UV transmission: 25 %.
Comprehensive tests resulted in the following solar technical values:
Solar transmission: 26 % (energy penetrating the fabric / the smaller the better)
Solar reflection: 46 % (energy reflected from the back of the fabric / the bigger the better)
Solar absorption: 28 % (energy absorbed by the material and converted into heat / the smaller the better)
g-value: 0.42 (total energy transmittance: energy input through the blind; the lower the g-value, the less energy passes through the blind and the lower the temperature behind it)
Fc value: 0.72 (reduction factor of a sun protection device, the smaller the better)
Although this product is similar in function to our DELITHERM products, it is a completely different article in production and in handling. As Desiree Sun has no metalized yarn but is metalized only on the backside, the article looks more homely and offers a larger variety of colours. Special attention must therefore be paid to the processing instructions.
Advantages of energy-saving glare and privacy protection:
improves the thermal room comfort
protects against strong heat radiation and UV radiation
reduces the intensity of air conditioning systems (reduction of CO2 emissions)
provides for more comfortable viewing at the monitor workstation

Chile-based ZeroCabin has created a collection of 100% self-sustaining and off-grid cabins for those who want a retreat in nature that leaves zero impact.
Developed by a small team of scientists with no architectural training, each cabin is built by the ZeroCabin team upon an elevated base of two-metre high wooden piles to maximise views in nature.
The timber-framed structures, which are built without using nails, use biodegradable insulation and thermally efficient glazing systems, which cut down on the use of active heating and cooling systems.
The “kit of parts” offered by ZeroCabin includes maintenance plans for photovoltaic panels, waste recycling and rainwater collection through reverse osmosis. These kits provide buyers with the tools and information to create a self-sustaining cabin with negative impact customised to function anywhere in the world.
ZeroCabin say: “The ZeroCabin is zero impact, it is a perfect symbiosis between you and nature. We build it wherever you want, we just leave a path, we don’t use a boom truck. 10% of our utility is invested in plans to preserve native forests and wildlife.”
Each cabin is oriented at a precise angle within its context for optimal exposure to the sun, making the most efficient use of solar panels for on-site generation of energy.
Amsterdam-based designer Maurizio Montalti – who has created pieces of furniture from a fungus-based material – is proving that mycelium can be used to replace plastic and other materials that are tough to recycle.
By combining mycelium, the “root structure of fungus”, with agricultural waste such as wheat, rapeseed and flax, Maurizio Montalti has created a new material, which he has used in the design of chairs, lampshades, waterproof vases, and slippers.
The designer – whose studio Officina Corpuscoli houses a lab where scientists work alongside designers to grow new materials from living microbes – believes that products made from mycelium-based materials are a solution to the plastic problem.
Maurizio Montalti cites his main source of inspiration as “the fascination for the micro-scale, together with a holistic vision of the world as a macro-organism animated by symbiotic relationships”.
The Italian designer and his team at the Officina Corpuscoli lab have been researching mycelium-based materials for nearly a decade.
In 2015 the studio embarked upon an industrial venture, aiming to standardise and scale-up mycelium technology and the subsequent range of naturally grown products. Alongside industrial partners, Maurizio Montalti founded technology platform and company, MOGU.
MOGU is the first company to offer commercial mycelium-based products on the market, suitable for interior design applications and as an alternative to traditional synthetic materials, such as petroleum-based plastics.
MOGU say: “Today, our relationship with the ecosystem is more than ever compromised, due to human activity and particularly to the irresponsible manufacturing processes we constantly run.
“At MOGU, we thrive to employ only residues as raw input materials, setting new value for unexploited resources through the skillful action of fungal mycelium.”
Sustainable cabins in secret locations, otherwise known as Slow Cabins, are popping up outside the city of Belgium in a bid to help people connect with nature.
Each cabin, built using eco-friendly materials with wooden interiors, is off-grid and self-sufficient through the use of solar panels, a filtered rainwater system and ecological dry-toilet. There are cabins of two kinds to suit individuals, couples and families.
The nature-based locations of the Slow Cabins are only revealed to guests after they’ve booked a cabin. Slow Cabins are mobile and frequently rotate locations, making for new sights and experiences for those looking to book a second trip.
The interiors of the Slow Cabins are natural and minimalist with its raw-look wooden floors and walls, and wooden furniture. Insulated glass windows frame views of surrounding fields and woodland, and there’s a wood-burning stove to cosy up in front of – and a small deck. The double beds consist of eco-textiles layered on a natural latex mattress, with large windows for gazing out into the surroundings.
The insulated cabins are kept toasty in the winter with wood-burning stoves, while the kitchen contains a pair of cooking plates alongside a sink, small fridge and a food preparation area. In the bathroom you’ll find a shower, wash basin and eco-friendly dry toilet. A fireplace and ceramic BBQ offer warmth and cooking options outside.
A stay also comes with a basket of locally-sourced produce and spring water.
The Slow Cabins experience is as much about making guests aware of their environmental impact. Slow Cabins say: “Each of our cabins comes equipped with a smart display that shares your energy and water use with you. By actively seeing your energy usage throughout your stay you become aware of your impact on the environment and what a positive and ecological footprint might look like.”
The Time For Two couple’s retreat costs from €175 per night, while the Time For Family cabin, which sleeps 3-5 people, costs from €185 per night.
Slow Cabins is expanding its off-the-grid concept across Europe and looking for partners.

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.

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.
IN COMPARISON: COTTON | POLYESTER VS. POLYESTER FR | TREVIRA CS
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.
