Within the context of the "Twin Gardens" project in Hall 12 at this year's Decosit Brussels visitors were able to retire to the "Secret Places" by Trevira, made up of four pavilions in differing designs. Here they could draw inspiration from creations in textiles of a puristic ambience that is at present shaping modern architecture. Attached to the inner sides of the four pavilions were various Trevira CS sliding panels, each illuminated from behind.

The "Secret Places" concept illustrated the subject of multi-functional window decoration in a manner that is playing an important part in the currently prevailing trend: "Living in harmony with nature".

A substantial proportion of the panels manufactured by suppliers of Trevira CS is made from a modified flame retardant material containing a low-melt component. This involves the material being stiffened during processing with the effect of heat. As a result textiles always retain their shape, they slide effortlessly and regulate light input intelligently. A smaller proportion of the curtaining consisted of conventional Trevira CS fabrics.

For "Secret Places" Trevira had harmoniously assembled textiles in quite varying structures, transparencies, tonal combinations and looks, including for instance lasercut. The visitor was thus able to gain a good overview of the range of collections on the market. The pavilions offering various opportunities to sit and linger for a while, were mainly decorated with Trevira CS furnishing and upholstery fabrics, each one in different colouring. The project incorporated flame retardant materials by 38 Trevira CS customers.

Also at the Trevira stand in Hall 9 visitors had the opportunity to find out about the wide range of Trevira CS sliding panels and how these worked. In addition, the Hall offered a display of further decorative and upholstery fabrics from Trevira CS customers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey.

There were 118 Trevira CS partners among the exhibitors at Decosit 2008 - making up, as in 2007, about one third of the total.

As a long-standing trade fair partner, Trevira congratulated the Decosit team on the thirty-year long existence of the Decosit Fair and in the process surprised the General Manager of Textirama, Patrick Geysels, by presenting him with a beautiful bowl from the modern Lagena collection by Höchster Porzellanmanufaktur.

This year the prestigious Trevira CS Award went for the first time to Spain, Trevira presenting the award to the "Trevira CS Rafael Catalá 2009" collection from the weaving mill of the same name.

Now in the sixth generation, Rafael Catalá has been active since 1770 as a family business and possesses one of the largest European private archives of traditional designs, valuable testimonials to the history of Spanish textiles.

The traditional Spanish company is known for the technically very demanding manufacture of high-quality textiles, such as national costumes and fabrics for ecclesiastical dignitaries, for haute couture and luxurious wedding dresses. Rafael Catalá also counts high-class suppliers of home textiles among its customers. To make traditional, high-quality textiles, the company naturally employs both old wooden looms from the 19th century alongside high performance electronic machinery.
