Technology Integration Used for Architectural and Interior Design
03 Apr 2021
In modern times, one of the most important factors to regulate the daylight entry into the buildings is the usage of interior shading devices. Hunter Douglas is a leading global brand in the field of window shades, Architectural and Interior Design and we have conducted various shade control behaviour studies to observe that most people don’t adjust their window shades regularly. It is not uncommon to see the blinds remain unmoved for days and even weeks. This adversely impacts energy savings enabled by effective usage of daylight.

As the leading solution provider of effective solar shading mechanisms, we provide you with a diverse range of exterior materials, façade, louvers, overhangs as well as interior shading solutions such as window blinds. We create sustainability driven design concepts in our products to ensure diffusion of sunlight entering the buildings and eliminating excessive heat gain or loss of heat in summers and winters respectively. Hunter Douglas Architectural has collaborated with architects and designers from different parts of the world to create products that take care of diverse needs of different projects, climates and seasons.

Whether it is the more challenging task of providing ideal shading solutions for the east and west facing windows or the provision of reducing heat gain of the walls, we have created some of the best architectural and interior design solutions for you by integrating technology into the products. We not only create an impressive array of products, but also provide support, from design development to post-installation service. Let’s take a look at some of our best products in this article:
