Product description:

The Markilux 1500 folding-arm awning is a lightweight construction with an openly positioned pneumatic spring at each arm.

Our goal was to design an awning which would appeal to a younger demographic. Assembly, kinematics and profile were reworked, all resulting in a fresh and airy perception of the product.
