SELECTION OF CUSTOM CURTAINS AND SITE-SPECIFIC PROJECTS
The studio collaborates with architects and interior designers on
commercial and residential projects to provide textile design solutions
that become an integral part of the architectural environment.
Through creative problem solving, site-specific textile systems and fabric
manipulation, elasticCo helps its clients create privacy, enhance acoustics, filter light or control room temperature for improved aesthetics and space use.
Custom curtain work is available for private clients upon request.
PROCESS CUSTOM TEXTILE
Process for custom curtains based on existing textile collection:
On-site meeting is scheduled. If an on-site meeting is not possible, ElasticCo can work from renderings of the space with detailed dimensions and description. Client’s needs and wishes, as well as textile samples, hardware, curtain fullness and colors will be discussed in depth.
ElasticCo will then provide three proposals with cost estimates.
Each proposal usually includes drawings of the pattern layout, hardware solutions and development of samples corresponding to the client’s color and fabric choices.
If the client likes a proposal and wishes to work with ElasticCo, a contract will be drawn and signed.
Curtains will be fabricated in ElasticCo’s Brooklyn studio. Lead times vary according to project specifications, but a mutually agreeable schedule will be decided upon prior to start of fabrication.
ElasticCo will handle curtain and hardware installation or work with client’s contractor to oversee installation.
Process for site-specific projects:
For site-specific projects, the process is organic and starts with a conversation. ElasticCo is open to a variety of projects: Architectural collaborations, competitions, costume and set designs, interior design assignments or textile consultations.
