AP 1905 PIET HEIN

Unique curtain track with LED

AESTHETICS AND FUNCTIONALITY

The Piet Hein Superellipse® curtain track (AP 1905) is created by Aluproff in collaboration with Piet Hein. Together we continue a small part of the legacy of Piet Hein and his “poetic design”, in a curtain rail designed with the superellipse formula.

INTEGRATED LED

The track is the first in the world with a groove for built-in LED. With LED light, you can also enjoy the beautiful track – and your curtain fabric – when it’s dark. AP 1905 comes in 4 beautiful collection colours matching the colours of the Superellipse table – and with the option of delivery in all NCS and standard RAL colours at a surcharge.

GEOMETRIC GENIUS

Piet Hein (1905-1996) was an architect, mathematician and poet. He is known both for his exclusive, harmonious design products, and for his small poems, called gruk.

Using mathematics, Piet Hein found a harmonious geometric figure, the world-famous superellipse.

USED WORLDWIDE

The superellipse has been used worldwide for urban planning, sports facilities and buildings, and Piet Hein himself used it in several of his famous designs.

The Superellipse® curtain track is cross-sectionally shaped like Piet Hein’s geometric figure adorned with his logo. The exclusive LED feature is also created in the spirit of Piet Hein, as he had a great love for lighting.

The track has been given the article number AP 1905 after Piet Hein’s year of birth. 

The Piet Hein Superellipse® curtain track is a good example of a value-adding collaboration between Aluproff and our partner Piet Hein. The classic design of the superellipse has been enhanced by our innovative LED light – and thus the first curtain rail in the world with integrated LED has been created.

The Piet Hein track comes in a plethora of ​​specially designed accessories, including:

Steel ball bearing glider with rubber wheels
Wave gliders with steel ball bearings and rubber wheels
Superellipse-shaped end caps in powder coated aluminium, with and without eye
Curved CURVE wall bracket in powder coated aluminium, 2 sizes
Square SQUARE wall bracket in powder coated aluminium, 2 sizes
Powder coated aluminum click ceiling brackets

Almost all accessories come in the 4 collection colours.
