This textile facade, placed in front of the physical glass facade work like a second skin. The membrane provides solar protection for the building, favouring energy savings and reducing operating costs. It also ensures the privacy of the occupants of the premises, while maintaining a good vision to the outside. The facade becomes a real communication tool situated against the highway, highlighting the Cheops brand and the aesthetic aspect of the building.

The Frontside View 381 membrane of Serge Ferrari was selected as the mesh medium for ink jet printing by Printable. This mesh was tested against the printing and coating technique of Printable. This unique varnish and coating is specially designed to resist UV, ensures long-term colour resistance, enabling the product to be guaranteed for 10 years.
