World premiere: complete smart motor range

In the Innovation Zone at the center of the Motionblinds booth at R+T, the complete range of Motionblinds all-in-one smart solutions will be premiered together for the first time. With Motionblinds first official launch at R+T in 2018, this comprehensive smart motor line-up is designed for all types of interior shading. Motionblinds caters to smart home and smart buildings with convenient USB-C rechargeable battery motors and reliable wired solutions tailored for commercial projects.

Motionblinds: two-time innovation award winner

Coulisse is honored to receive two Innovation Awards at the R+T Stuttgart 2024 event, recognizing the excellence of Motionblinds with built-in Eve technology. The first award, in the 'Building Automation' category, celebrates the groundbreaking Adaptive Shading feature. This technology allows shades to intuitively adjust according to the sun, optimizing natural light and energy efficiency based on the geographical location and orientation of the window. The second award, in the 'Interior Sun Shading Systems' category, highlights the innovative Smart Frame. Making its debut at R+T, this new solution is the world's first solar-powered motorized pleated and honeycomb blind in a magnetic frame, specially designed for drill-free installation in tilt and turn windows and doors.

Coulisse-Lienesch unveils inspiring textiles

The Coulisse-Lienesch booth stands as a testament to the collaborative strength since the acquisition of Lienesch on January 1, 2024. This strategic collaboration solidifies a unified approach for customers seeking a comprehensive product range from a single, industry-leading supplier. The exhibition unveils the latest strides in textile innovation, presenting carefully curated collections featuring textured fabrics, recycled yarns, energy efficient Honeycell® and FSC®-certified bamboo for venetian blinds, aligning with the on-trend tones of 2024. Capturing the limelight is the Fundament collection for roller and pleated blinds – an affordable and essential foundation for every assortment.

Grand opening: new showroom and warehouse

Following the R+T event, Coulisse is preparing for the highly anticipated opening of its brand-new Motionblinds showroom in Enter, the Netherlands. Scheduled to officially launch at the end of February 2024, this state-of-the-art showroom is designed to provide hands-on demonstrations, trainings, and valuable insights, contributing to the global promotion and sales of Motionblinds.
