An addi­tion­al inner lay­er of insu­la­tion for win­dows. In old­er build­ings, win­dows can’t always offer suf­fi­cient insu­la­tion. ‘Modist’ is attached to the inside wall sur­round­ing the win­dow and pro­vides required addi­tion­al insu­la­tion. 

Who For ten­ants who can’t pro­vide finan­cial, time, and tech­ni­cal sup­port to change or improve their win­dows for bet­ter insu­la­tion

Why Cli­mate change and ener­gy crises lead us to be more con­scious about our ener­gy con­sump­tion. ‘Modist’ focus­es on a sim­ple yet effec­tive way to improve effi­cien­cy while ben­e­fit­ing also from aes­thet­ics.

How The sys­tem allows for an easy assem­bly and instal­la­tion. The fab­ric cov­er cre­ates an extra lay­er over the win­dow while pro­vid­ing a unique aes­thet­ic expe­ri­ence. Even if the user moves to anoth­er hous­ing, ‘Modist’ can be eas­i­ly adjust­ed to the new win­dow size. 

Where Orig­i­nal­ly ‘Modist’ was designed with the old build­ings in inner cities in mind, but it can be used in a vari­ety of build­ings with less effi­cient win­dows.
