TESS™ 440 was chosen for its discrete stainless steel cable guides, which blend in with the glass and brushed metallic finish of the façade, to allow a clean aesthetic when the blinds are retracted. When the blinds are deployed, the illusion is created of a floating fabric façade. The project team installed over 280 TESS™ systems in phases over three months in line with the construction programme. Guthrie Douglas were engaged by BIPP-BIPP SA to collaborate on design concept development, the feasibility study including wind resistance testing, system manufacture, on-site installation training, and post-completion support.
