It’s more than 60 years since Joe Hunter and Henry Sonnenberg launched their business venture; the ‘Hunter Douglas Machinery Corporation’, to develop an innovative casting and production process for lightweight aluminium.
They were planning something very new and very different. A product which would completely change window coverings: Aluminium Venetian Blinds.
Innovation yesterday and today
These Venetian Blinds were introduced into Europe in 1951 under the brand name Luxaflex®. Their outstanding design and practical functionality quickly became the ‘must-have’ window covering. Ever since – and right-up to the present day – Luxaflex® has continued introducing new, ground-breaking products like the unique, award-winning Duette® Shades, Silhouette® Shades and Facette® Shades.
