2011 – A year in retrospect

2011 was a very eventful year – and eventful for CARAVITA as well. Here are some of the highlights of this past season.

Our catalog underwent a complete makeover and was redesigned for the coming season 2012. In addition to the wonderful pictures from our photo shoot in Miami, it also incorporated a new high tech section that shows all the interworking of each shade model. With a 120 pages, our new catalog 2012 is not only our most beautiful, but the largest we have ever issued.

Among the many tradeshows this past year, one we especially would like to remember, is the Casual Market, in Chicago. We received astounding feedback on the Belvedere and Supremo models with their innovative opening mechanisms for the US market. Another fantastic highlight was our innovative NEW product design with the combination of stainless steel and graphic black and white pattern designed especially for the market by designer Ramsey J. Prince.

In addition, some new products were introduced. The 360° rotatable steel foot pedal for our cantilevers Amalfi and Belvedere is a powerful functional enhancement with an eye catching appearance! The new solid aluminum hubs grant even more sturdiness and elegance to our PLUS-collection sunshades.

The Belvedere model especially benefitted from these innovations. Besides the aluminum hub and the steel foot pedal, the design of the Belvedere underwent a complete makeover. Changes to form have allowed for improvement and an even smoother running mechanism. Combine this with the new aluminum parts, makes the Belvedere a one of a kind cantilever with maximum sturdiness.

2012 – What lies ahead?

We continue to expand our product line because we strive to design what fits our customer needs and with only the best quality. For 2012, we will once again introduce creativity and exclusive design-functions into our products. Perhaps even a sneak peak for some new product designs for 2013 at the “R+T“-Show in Stuttgart (Germany) in February.

Over 800 exhibitors showcase every three years presenting the latest products and innovations to the public at the leading show for shutters, gates and shades.

At the CARAVITA-booth we will present both our cantilever-shades Amalfi and Belvedere with the new 360° rotatable steel foot pedal; Supremo with its easy and innovative sliding-mechanism and the Big Ben – fully equipped with integrated lighting system and integrated wires for infrared-heaters.
