now THAT is cool.
I dig this shade but I love these: http://www.bodieandfou.com/products.asp?catname=Lounge&subcatname=Blinds&cat=5&subcat=59Any clue where I can find these in the states? I'm trying to find roller shades for my house and can't find anything this creative. Thanks!
anonthey dont list reps in the us so i'd just shoot them an email and ask. most times they'll let you buy one directly from them if there isn't someone in the states.d*s
I live in the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon, and sadly (but inevitably) I am losing my amazing view of the epic Fremont bridge to new development. I will soon be counting down the days that I have my beautiful skyline of the arched bridge framed by mid-and high-rise towers (at least "high-rise" by Portland standards). I would LOVE to have a shade I could pull down to reminisce about the good old days before condo-mania was in full effect (or the "Sold Rush," as a friend has coined it). I wonder how/where I could get something like this custom designed with a stylized version of my current view?
the pic was taken from coolhunter.net without credit
anon-nope, it was credited to a reader named adrianne who sent me a link to fiasko with the photo. if she/he saw it on coolhunting they neglected to say so in her email.i welcome emails regarding my sourcing if anyone is ever curious. i'm happy to send you adrianne's email if you'd like it (shoot me a line at [designsponge at gmail dot com] but i don't think it's cool to publish it in the comments section without their permission.d*s
@Kristin:Step 1: Find graphic designer. Or graphic design student. Or someone that enjoys working with graphics.Step 2: Take a picture of your view.Step 3: Give photo to graphic designer/crafty friend/starving art student. Have them isolate the shape of the windows from the buildings, and save out as a .dwg or other laser cutter compatible file.Step 4: Send file to laser cutting service, to be done on fabric/material of your choice.Step 5: Stylized view done!Of course, there's a lot of other stuff to figure out between these steps, but I think it's definitely doable, D.I.Y. wise.
So uh, how does one acually go about buying one? The Fiasko website is worthless
Any idea how/where to get one of these? The fiasko design website isn't much more than a business card with flashing pictures and emails to the address listed on their site keep bouncing back?
Step 6: Shell out $600 bucks per window shade. This is far from a DIY project short of you cutting out all the windows yourself. Lazer cutting ain't cheap, bout 3 bucks a minute and this is at least an hour if not two...plus shipping of material before and/or after cutting plus making it into a shade. All together it just makes more sense to find the damn shade on the market somewhere and have it shipped to you.
Wow! I like that. I always thought about to do this with a real picture from a former view from my window. Now there are big buidings –– 2 years ago it was possible to sea water and cranes from the hamburg seaport. hmm...
this shade rocks my world!
i emailed the site and my email hasn't bounced back yet- still waiting to hear from them. will post an update on buying them as soon as i hear something...d*s
Wow! I actually designed a more simplified version of this for myself as a kid.
anonymous... I didn't say that it wouldn't be pricey. But for a shade that is customized for a view of your choice (rather than a generic skyline), $600 ain't bad.
How can I buy this roll down curtain from Spain? It´s a wonderfull idea, congratulations!!!
