Minimal design and practicality for small outdoor spaces
Coming Soon to Samson Awnings
As summer approaches, spending time outdoors becomes a real pleasure.
To create a comfortable, cosy corner, even in the smallest of spaces, we have designed a totally unique product: Med Jeans, the new Gibus pergola. This innovative product, with its slender, clean lines, has been especially developed to harmonize perfectly with buildings characterized by small outdoor spaces, such as urban homes, terraced houses or apartments with terraces.
Every detail has been designed by the Gibus Research & Development department with this aim in mind, from the light structure, conceived as a lean-to attached to an exterior wall, made of powder-coated aluminium, to the slender profile of the posts and guides, which have dimensions of 60 x 100 millimetres.
The Med Jeans pergola is available in two versions: single module, with a width of up to 450 centimetres, and two modules, which reach 700 cm. Both have a maximum projection of 500 cm and are available with either manual or motorized movement systems.
The strong point of each Gibus product is the perfect balance between functionality and style: even for Med Jeans, the focus on design and attention to detail are elements that make this product efficient and elegant.
The young, minimal look of this pergola is perfect for complementing any architectural style without becoming overly dominant. Thanks to its minimal design and clean, slender lines, this new pergola gives outdoor spaces a dash of dynamism and stylish cool.
This effect is also achieved by the absence of exposed screws, the well-finished wall mount which hides the operating mechanisms, and the retractable PVC cover supported by horizontal profiles with the patented “Quick Block” system with aluminium front bayonet.
The canopy does not just protect against UV rays, but, together with the “Weather Strip” system, it also ensures that the fabric remains waterproof. The Med Jeans solution is therefore ideal for setting up your Place Under the Sun, whether in spring and autumn or full summer, ensuring comfortable enjoyment in any climate.
When summer’s warm temperatures entice you to go outside, you would like to spend your days preferably until the late evening hours outdoors, or on your own balcony or patio. A possibly variable lighting system is needed for the matching atmosphere, from cosy to well lit.
Here, the shade providers such as the Markilux 6000 show their practical side. According to the manufacturer, the patio awning does not only offer comfortable solar protection for different living areas during the day, but also spot lights integrated in the projection profile offer the possibility to set atmospheric light accents in the evening.
Depending on the size interval of the awning, between two to six new energy-saving LED spot lights (24 Volts/4.8 Watt) can be used. The swivelling spot lights can now also be switched on and off comfortably at the touch of a button using an electronic radio receiver and hand transmitter.
Optionally you can also use the radio system io-homecontrol to control the brightness of the LED spot lights, which have a light colour of 2,700 Kelvin. This permits the creation of warm cosy to bright friendly colour rooms, depending on the awning fabric chosen, which invite to let the evening pass outside protected by an awning roof.
Markilux M X-1
RedDot 2015 – Winner
For the third time in only four months that our awnings manufacturer Markilux can look forward to an internationally renowned award for its new design awning MX-1/MX-1 compact. After the Interior Innovation Award 2015 and the iF Design Award 2015, this time the awning received the reddot design award 2015 for its high design quality.
With the reddot design award 2015, the MX-1 received the third internationally recognised prize within a very short time. This does not only ensure good vibes for Markilux, but also for the designer professor Andreas Kramer from Bremen: “If a concept for a new product develops in your mind, it is natural to ask yourself, how this idea and design will be received? If you are then showered with prizes like for the MX-1, this is something truly special!”
Surprise with a new design
This success, however, is possible only as a team. For several years he has been experimenting together with the Markilux product development to find an expressive design. “This process resulted in many award-winning products, and now the most recent one, the new patio awning. We try every time to make an unusual aspect stand out, and we seem to have succeeded in this with the MX-1”, says Kramer happily.
Managing director Dan Schmitz, who provided the impetus for the novel body of the MX-1 with protruding roof function, is also enthusiastic to have won another prize for this design. “We were already able to impress renowned designers and design professors as well as trade journalists with the futuristic look of the MX-1. Now all that remains is that the end customer likes the awning. “However, after a very convincing start into the season 2015 things are looking definitely positive.
According to the Design Centre North Rhine-Westphalia, the reddot design award is one of the largest and most renowned product awards in the world. In 2015, about 2,000 creative minds from 56 countries with around 5,000 design concepts took part in the competition for product design, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
