Bloomframe is REAL!- 09.02.09

bloom1.jpg The Bloomframe is a reality! Not that it wasn’t real before when i posted about it about 2.5 years ago, but now its in production!!! There is something so thrilling about watching these ideas grow and garner so much interest as concepts and make it into working production models! And don’t take my word for it… there’s even a VIDEO! See the video and more pics on the next page! If i had a second story, i’d definitely want one!

“The Bloomframe® balcony, designed by Hofman Dujardin Architects and developed and manufactured by Hurks geveltechniek, is the winner of the prestigious Wallpaper* Design Award 2009 in the category Most-life-enhancing-product.” Additionally it’s picked up - 1st prize Audi Design Award 2008, 1st prize Red Dot Design Award 2008 Germany, Nomination Index Design Award 2009 Denmark, Nomination Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany 2009, and Nomination MKB Innovation Top 100 2009. And there are various options/sizes/etc ~ take a peek at more pics (and the video!) on the next page!

p.s. first thing going through this with a friend… his reaction was “watch out for upskirt cams!” ~ and then someone else said it should magically tint itself as it opens… just a thought…









CONGRATS to Hofman Dujardin Architects on making the award winning Bloomframe a reality!

What a cool idea - but can I get this in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada? How much for a small (for a bachelor pad) be and then cost for shipping?

Or a venetian type frit for the lower panel, that shifts slightly so that it is banded when closed, and opaque when open
