The Vertical Wave “Annika” System was selected over the other Vertical Wave designs “Maria” & “Andrea” as its blade design is so unique. The Silhouette formed by the overlap is pure Silent Gliss.

With the redesign of the blades, the Vertical system has been given a new life. The ability of this system allows the client varying light control by rotating the blades and can be sacked back into a relatively small spaces.
The stairwell was an adaptation of the system that reduced the sense of how high you actually are above the ground.
