Iterative simplifications slowly resulted in this elegantly basic system that uses an absolute minimum of materials and requires essentially no tools or skills to assemble, making for record-breaking assembly speed and a lovely lack of instructions-related headaches.
This Ready Made Curtain by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec is easily adjustable in width and height, utilizing a flexible-length unwinding support wire (inspired by guitar springs) and simple scissor-cut fabric.
So the end consumer just has to pick the right color of semi-transparent material (with matching snaps), joined with a set of self-explanatory parts, and essentially snap them together with easy-to-use fasteners. Elementary from start to finish, and easily reusable as well (as fast to take it apart as to put it together).
From its Danish designers: “The ambition was to create a new system that allows anyone to install a quality curtain in record time. Little skill and few tools are needed, margin for error has been considered and perfection isn’t an absolute requirement. In fact, the charm of the imperfect in opposition to the overly sanitised interior, is something we believe in.”
