Project Details

The iconic Olympia London exhibition centre and event space is currently being redeveloped as a visitor destination for culture, creativity and entertainment. The precinct will include a new theatre, hotel, cinema, art conference facilities, co-working office spaces and a logistics centre.


Guillaume Janssen bottom-up opaque fabric shading systems with zip side channels and very tall (9 meter) heavy-duty zip screen systems with special fabric tensioning springs. The shading systems are operated in unison by switch for up, down and intermediate height adjustment control using Vestamatic VL-SMI digital motors and BUSbar cabling system – powering x16 motors/blinds per cable, greatly reducing the amount of wiring and connection points needed.
