The descending windows from HIRT moving architecture® set the stage for creative solutions. Developed and manufactured in Switzerland, the HIRT kinetics® disappear silently into the ground at the touch of a button. Inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Stefan Hirt, visionary and lead engineer at HIRT moving architecture®, developed the HIRT kinetics® product line.

 

When a heavy glass front or a massive wall retracts weightlessly and silently, the interior and exterior realign to form a common space. The HIRT kinetics® Swiss-made precision products allow for realizing completely new spatial concepts and inspire architects all over the world.

 

The sense of wonder HIRT kinetics® imparts is even more pronounced when the components are not made of glass, but instead of metal, wood or stone – materials that inspire architecture to transcend boundaries.
