Going Wilde: Staycity Berlin

Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity, Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie is Staycity’s first property in Germany. The 48-apartment development is part of a new scheme occupying what was the best-known crossing point of the Berlin Wall.

Wilde is Staycity’s premium concept inspired by the wit and irreverence of Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde. The brand’s ethos is based around the fusion of superior design with touches of the unexpected offering space for guests to escape, relax, cook and work in creative interiors. That’s why Staycity Group applied our unique DS-XL® LED-system in combination with FES® wave system in this distinctive project creating an instant wow-effect.

Smart Home integration with Homey


The motorized rails of Forest come with wireless control via either Z-Wave Plus or 433MHz RF. Both options can be integrated directly into the Homey smart home platform.

When connected to Homey, the motorized systems can be controlled via all iOS and Android smartphones, from anywhere in the world, together with the other 50 000+ devices Homey works with. They can also be integrated in Homey Flows for automation. For instance, you can automatically open curtains at wake-up, or close them when the 'movie time' scene is activated.

Note: systems using 433MHz are limited to 'open', 'close' and 'stop' commands. The Z-Wave-based systems can also be set to open or close to distinct percentages / positions, allowing for more granular control.

Hole puncher and Punch Endstop

Carriers can be tricky to replace on recessed track systems. But not anymore! We now offer a hole puncher, with which you can create a slot in an existing track so curtain carriers are easily replaced or added in our KS-recess system.

To cover the slot, engineers at Forest Group have developed the perfect solution in the shape of the Punch End Stop. The opening remains completely invisible, adding to the system’s appearance and versatility. Depending on the way the Punch End Stop is placed, it allows for different hooks, making it suitable for wave curtains as well.

Easyflex Master Carrier 90º and small stiffener

Perfection is our goal! That’s why we have developed especially for curtains with a wave pleat a new 90º master carrier in combination with a small stiffener.

This always gives the wave curtain a stylish look because the 90º master carrier ensures the perfect wave fold from the beginning. For applications where the curtains are treated very roughly, the stiffener is also a sustainable solution. The stiffener makes curtains more robust and ensures that curtains last longer. Especially useful for hotels.

It’s a small detail but it makes a big difference if you use dark draperies in combination with a black or anthracite curtain track. From now on we have included the Easyflex Endhook and the FES Pendant in black to our product range. Get ready to explore the dark side!
