Plauen Textildesign students from the Faculty of Applied Art in Schneeberg had the opportunity to try out their theoretical knowledge in practice. Within the framework of the final thesis in the 6th semester, it was necessary to design motifs for curtains and other home textiles. They were supported not only by their professors of the Faculty of Applied Art University of Zwickau , But also from two Saxon companies – Sensuna GmbH from Plauen, a manufacturer of roller blinds, curtains and pleats, as well as the RolloExpress from Auerbach in the Erzgebirge, an O. Nlineshop for textile sun protection ,
In March, the students of the textile design textildesign and their professors Annerose Schulze and Jörg Steinbach had the opportunity to visit the company RolloExpress and the production of Sensuna GmbH. Michael Knauth, Managing Director of RolloExpress, at that time accompanied the students, explaining the procedures – from the design to the production, to the sale and dispatch – and answered many questions. For years, Knauth has been committed to cooperation between universities and companies, which gives young people an insight into the working world.
At the end of the 6th semester, the designs under the motto”A blind is rarely alone”are ready and ready to be included in the assortment of the two companies. Michael Knauth got a first impression of the results at the beginning of August, when he paid a visit to the students in Schneeberg, convinced by their wealth of ideas as well as by their sense of fabrics, colors and patterns.
It is up to the students to decide which subjects to choose, because the artist’s view and assessment of what customers want to find and buy is also part of the project, which includes artistic, market and business aspects. For RolloExpress this is a good opportunity the standard offer of the LYSEL surface curtains To expand Sensuna’s custom-made products.
