Curtains and room dividers

Since the early 1960s, Aarikka has manufactured button curtains that function as room dividers. They have also been utilised in the company’s own shop decorations and exhibition stands.

In the Väriverho (‘Colourful curtains’) exhibition held at the Finnish Design Center in 1971, Aarikka showcased curtains assembled from wooden elements but also curtains made from plastic, aluminium, and brass.

Interior decorators favoured various types of new room dividers for the interior spaces of hotels, restaurants, and other public areas.
