Sky-Frame Classic

A rectilinear aluminum frame, fusing subtle aesthetic with Swiss firmness, composes the design of Sky-Frame’s debut window system Classic. Its pure appearance sides with the distinct design language of modernist champions from Mies van der Rohe to Richard Neutra. Consequently, it is a plea for thinking open and expanding space. Its iconic descent and balanced proportions make Classic fit to any architectural vision, always providing a modernist touch. To its formal quality, the system adds a functional versatility: It can be a platform for multiple extensions, serving diverse practical user needs. The drainage runs beneath the outdoor flooring or in recessed channels of the rails. Joint with its various opening styles – sideways, centralized or with corner-openings – and rails flush-fit to floor and ceiling, it accomplishes a frictionless usability.
