DESIGN OF CREATIVE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FOR THE RECOVERY OF BOAT SAILS

At the end of their useful life sailboat sails are put into storage as until now there has been no available process for restoring them and bring them back to life. A large quantity of sail material has been put away without any plans for its rehabilitation.
The sails currently used on Maxi Yachts are made of high-tech materials and when they are taken out of service much of their surface is still in perfect condition.

DVELAS focuses on finding these retired sails and taking full advantage of the technology that has been invested in them. We do this not only because we can take full advantage of their strength and their durable qualities but also because we think they have enormous, unexplored, aesthetic potential.

DVELAS FOCUS ON FOUR MAIN AREAS OF DESIGN AND PRODUCTION:

DESIGN AND CUSTOM SOLUTIONS FOR SUN PROTECTION

We create shading solutions, using recovered sails within a framework of traditional systems that already exist in the nautical world or which can be adapted to our needs. We work with new applications such as photo catalytic treatments that clean the air, LED lighting systems incorporated into the fabric, nebulization systems that cool the air and fireproof the fabrics.

DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF OUTDOOR FURNITURE

Our furniture designs take advantage of the qualities of the various sail fabrics along with other materials such as light balls, metal or wooden frames, tensioned rope, foam, resin, and fibers.
