Month's drapilux recommendation: Nature-inspired lightness

  • Inspiring Interiors

Textiles are an inseparable part of the interior as they give a room atmosphere and good acoustics. But which fabric is best suited for which purpose? This month's drapilux  recommendation is drapilux835 and is aimed at classic and modern hotels as well as offices, healthcare facilities and hospitals.

  • Nature-inspired lightness: drapilux 835

The translucency of drapilux 835 conveys openness, lightness and a sense of character. This  was  how  Holger  Schön,  Commercial  Property  Manager  at drapilux, described the series. That is the reason why this fabric, with its versatile floral patterns, adorns the four walls of the commercial property manager’s own home: “We live in the suburbs in a rural setting. Consequently, we chose a design with poppies, as this pattern harmonises well in the natural surroundings in which we live.” The fabric also plays a part in the hygiene chain thanks to the intelligent added function of drapilux bioaktiv. Silver ions on the surface of the fibres kill over 99 percent of any bacteria located on textiles.

Dass drapilux auch beim Design Maßstäbe setzt, zeigt die Auszeichnung mit dem German Design Award. Eine Experten-Jury hat die drei Stoffe für ihre herausragende Designqualität als „Special Mention“ ausgewählt.

„Special Mention” drapilux 809 in der Kategorie Excellent Product Design – Home Textiles and Home Accessories
Die neue Serie des Artikels drapilux 809 ist Anni Albers gewidmet, die als Bauhaus-Künstlerin auch international Bekanntheit erlangte. Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten in der Weberei entwickelte sie ihre eigene Formensprache. Diese bestand aus abstrakt-symmetrischen Motiven und streng auf die Grundformen reduzierten Mustern. Die Jury begründet ihre Entscheidung zum Gewinner in der Kategorie Excellent Product Design mit seinem vom Bauhaus inspirierten zeitlosen Dreiecksmuster:„Der Stoff fügt sich problemlos in die Designsprache vieler moderner Einrichtungsstile ein und sorgt dabei für eine elegante Atmosphäre.“

„Special Mention” drapilux 188 in der Kategorie Excellent Product Design – Home Textiles and Home Accessories
Das minimalistische Dessin mit dem großzügigen Rapport von drapilux 188 ist der Bauhaus-Künstlerin Benita Koch-Otte gewidmet. Sein reduziertes Dessin erinnert an den angesagten skandinavischen Trend und eignet sich sowohl für den Einsatz im Hotel als auch im Büro und Healthcare-Bereich. Ein insgesamt modern und hochwertig wirkender Stoff, so die Beurteilung der Jury.

„Special Mention” drapilux 115 in der Kategorie Excellent Product Design – Home Textiles and Home Accessories
Die besondere Optik bei diesem Deko entsteht durch seine Zweifarbigkeit. Das gewebte Textil wird in einem aufwendigen kationisch/anionischen Verfahren gefärbt. In Kombination mit einem Anteil an Reycling-Fasern und seiner Schwerentflammbarkeit ist dieser Artikel die Königsdisziplin der Stückfärberei. Insgesamt liegt der Stoff in 36 Nuancen der modernen Farbtöne Puderrosa, Aqua, Petrol, Olivgrün sowie Koralle und Orange vor. „Der Deko zeichnet sich durch eine besonders hochwertig wirkende Optik aus. Eine interessante Textillösung für elegante Interiorkonzepte“, urteilt die Jury.

Stoff-Empfehlung des Monats August: Elegante Glanzpunkte für den Healthcare-Bereich und das Hotel

  • Elegante Glanzpunkte: drapilux 189 85

Textilien sind untrennbarer Teil des Interieurs, denn sie geben einem Raum Atmosphäre und eine gute Akustik. Doch welcher Stoff ist für welchen Zweck am besten geeignet?

  • Elegante Glanzpunkte: drapilux 189 85

Textilien sind untrennbarer Teil des Interieurs, denn sie geben einem Raum Atmosphäre und eine gute Akustik. Doch welcher Stoff ist für welchen Zweck am besten geeignet? Die drapilux-Empfehlung dieses Monats ist Artikel 189 85 und richtet sich an den Healthcare-Bereich sowie an klassische und moderne Hotels.

Der Blickfang bei diesem Deko entsteht durch seine besondere Webtechnik, die sogenannte Scherlitechnik. Dabei werden zusätzlich eingetragene füllige Fäden, die lose auf der Rückseite des Gewebes liegen, nach dem Weben abgeschnitten bzw. geschert (Schweizer Ausdruck: Scherli). Bei drapilux-Artikel 189 85 bestehen die gescherten Schussfäden aus einem Filamentgarn, das sich durch seinen charakteristischen Glanz vom matten Untergrund abhebt. Das Ergebnis ist ein großzügiger Rapport (116 cm hoch x 140 cm breit) mit zwei sich überlappenden Rechtecken aus schillernden, in Scherlitechnik gewebten Punkten. Die Glanzpunkte umfassen trendige Farbtöne wie Currygelb, Aqua, Oliv, Puderrosa und Koralle. Die Fondfarben hingegen sind neutral gehalten. Das verleiht dem Stoff eine angemessene Zurückhaltung. Damit passt der Deko gut zum angesagten natürlichen Boho-Trend oder auch zu einer skandinavisch angehauchten Einrichtung. Insgesamt ist der Artikel in vier hellen und drei dunklen Kolorits erhältlich.

Trevira presents high-end contract textiles for healthcare environments at Building Healthcare in Dubai

Bobingen - Trevira GmbH, Germany, is again participating as an exhibitor at this year’s Building Healthcare show in Dubai, from 2-4 October. The manufacturer of high-value polyester fibres will present a large variety of fabrics made by 12 partners from inherently flame retardant Trevira fibres and yarns.

Modern furnishing concepts for healthcare environments are making increasing demands in terms of quality, functionality, colouring and hygiene. Perfectly matched materials and colour concepts in the interior not only help to provide good orientation for the residents, but also create more attractive spaces. In addition, the use of appropriate textiles such as curtains, drapes, blinds and sliding panels, fabric-covered dividing panels, upholstery and bedding textiles, can improve the room acoustics, protect your privacy and let the room appear in a pleasant light. In healthcare environments where hygiene and cleanliness are of particular importance, antimicrobial textiles may be used.

In healthcare environments where hygiene and cleanliness are of particular importance, antimicrobial textiles may be used.

Trevira CS® and Trevira CS Bioactive® create a safe, attractive and comfortable environment in hospitals, clinics, spas, care homes and all other sectors in the contract sector.

Trevira CS Bioactive® contract textiles combine flame retardant and antimicrobial functions, which makes them the ideal material for use in healthcare facilities. They inhibit the growth of bacteria, prevent the formation of odours in/on the fibre and keep the textiles fresh for a longer time. The permanent flame retardant and bioactive properties of their fibres is integrated at molecular level, meaning that they remain unaffected by repeated washing, abrasion and ageing. This gives them an advantage over textiles with only a supplementary surface finish.

Trevira CS® and Trevira CS Bioactive® fabrics for the healthcare sector presented at the show stand come from these suppliers: Delius, Dina Vanelli, Fidivi Tessitura Vergnano, Gebrüder Munzert, JAB, Mattes & Ammann, Pugi, Rubelli, Rudolf Breuer Mechanische Weberei, Schmitz Textiles/drapilux, Subrenat, Verotex.

Trevira CS® and Trevira CS Bioactive® fabrics meet the requirements of the relevant international fire safety standards and can be certified according to the IMO regulations for the maritime sector. All Trevira fibres and yarns carry the Oekotex Standard 100 certificate. They are manufactured in accordance with the highest standards for sustainable products. A broad variety of collections with thousands of designs are available in Trevira CS® worldwide.

Richmond-based HandCraft Linen Services Recertified Hygienically Clean

Emphasis on Process, Third-party Validation and Outcome-based Testing
HandCraft Linen Services’ Richmond, Virginia laundry has had their certification renewed for Hygienically Clean Healthcare, reflecting their commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

The laundry was first certified in 2014. Recertification confirms the organization’s continuing dedication to infection prevention, compliance with recognized industry standards and processing healthcare textiles using BMPs as described in its quality assurance documentation, a focal point for Hygienically Clean inspectors’ evaluation. The independent, third-party inspection must also confirm essential evidence that:

•             Employees are properly trained and protected
•             Managers understand regulatory requirements
•             OSHA-compliant
•             Physical plant operates effectively

HandCraft Linen Services’ Richmond, Virginia laundry has had their certification renewed for Hygienically Clean Healthcare, reflecting their commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing.

The laundry was first certified in 2014. Recertification confirms the organization’s continuing dedication to infection prevention, compliance with recognized industry standards and processing healthcare textiles using BMPs as described in its quality assurance documentation, a focal point for Hygienically Clean inspectors’ evaluation. The independent, third-party inspection must also confirm essential evidence that:

•             Employees are properly trained and protected
•             Managers understand regulatory requirements
•             OSHA-compliant
•             Physical plant operates effectively

To achieve certification initially, laundries pass three rounds of outcome-based microbial testing, indicating that their processes are producing Hygienically Clean Healthcare textiles and diminished presence of yeast, mold and harmful bacteria. They also must pass a facility inspection. To maintain their certification, they must pass quarterly testing to ensure that as laundry conditions change, such as water quality, textile fabric composition and wash chemistry, laundered product quality is consistently maintained. Re-inspection occurs every two to three years.

This process eliminates subjectivity by focusing on outcomes and results that verify textiles cleaned in these facilities meet appropriate hygienically clean standards and BMPs for hospitals, surgery centers, medical offices, nursing homes and other medical facilities.

Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification acknowledges laundries’ effectiveness in protecting healthcare operations by verifying quality control procedures in linen, uniform and facility services operations related to the handling of textiles containing blood and other potentially infectious materials.

Certified laundries use processes, chemicals and BMPs acknowledged by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, American National Standards Institute and others. Introduced in 2012, Hygienically Clean Healthcare brought to North America the international cleanliness standards for healthcare linens and garments used worldwide by the Certification Association for Professional Textile Services and the European Committee for Standardization.

Objective experts in epidemiology, infection control, nursing and other healthcare professions work with Hygienically Clean launderers to ensure the certification continues to enforce the highest standards for producing clean healthcare textiles.

German Design Award 2018 goes to drapilux

Emsdetten, Germany -  Award for the drapilux 235 03 article from the Boutique collection: the international expert judging panel for the German Design Award 2018 named the material the winner of the Home Textiles and Home Accessories category due to its outstanding design quality.

drapilux is one of the major textile manufacturers in Europe and a pioneer of intelligent functions. The German Design Award is recognition of the success achieved by drapilux in setting new benchmarks in design.

New fabric quality and stylish design

With the flame-retardant, opaque article, 235 03, drapilux – the commercial property furnishers which specialise in hospitality, healthcare and maritime – have brought a product to the market this year that can be used in hotels and care facilities, on ships or at home.

New hotels, furnished in a themed and aspirational manner, are particularly fond of the modern pattern as it gives their properties a unique character.

The special feature of the drapilux 235 product series from the Boutique collection is the new quality of the materials used: “The coarse yarn provides the textiles with firm grip and is therefore well suited for bedspreads and upholstery”, explained Kirstin Herrmann, Head of drapilux Design Studio. ”The design of Article 235 from series no. 3 is reminiscent of cherry blossoms and has a natural and delicate appearance. The bright colours, however, are used sparingly to give the product a modern and trendy touch” she continued.

The fabric features drapilux akustik, a function which has a positive effect on the acoustics of a room. When ordering above a certain amount, all textiles can be delivered with intelligent finishes: drapilux air and drapilux bioaktiv actively improve the indoor climate and fight against germs and bacteria on the textile.
