NEDAP

Annually, the Dutch machine factory “Nedap” organizes several parties for their staff and surrounding citizens. To accommodate these festivities, Tentech was asked to realize a temporary square cover which is easy to construct and demount.

The membrane structure is supported by two permanent placed poles. The poles have a triangular section and are made out of steel sheet material. With the use of levers and steel cables the membrane is brought into position. Inside the columns, a locking mechanism secures the levers, once in position. At the front, two side-poles tension the membrane. At the other sides, the structure is closed. The pavement is complemented with LED-lights which illuminate the membrane in different colours.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
