J&C Joel Install Curtains at Oslo Concert Hall

J&C Joel has manufactured and installed five custom dyed Austrian curtains, made from IFR Sowerby velvet, at the Oslo Concert Hall, Norway.

Oslo Concert Hall is Oslo’s music festive hall which opened in 1977 and has since become one of the most important institutes for music and culture in Norway.

Bespoke royal blue curtains were installed by J&C Joel into the main hall which has a capacity of over 1400 seats.

Each curtain was made separately to allow individual control with the installation of new support pulleys, hauling lines, aluminium spines and other hardware to bring the existing system up to date and enhance its operation.

The FoH curtain consists of a main curtain measuring 20.9-metres wide and two front side maskings measuring 2.7-metres wide and all with a 12.7-metres drop and 50% fullness. To complete the FoH curtain two rear side maskings were manufactured measuring 4.5-metres wide by 11.8-metres drop.

The curtains cover the entire width of the hall in a deep and rich ornate fabric creating an impressive waterfall like effect. Austrian curtains (also known as a reefer or festoon) are manufactured with vertical and horizontal fullness sewn into the horizontal pleated swags, this enables the curtain to be raised evenly by multiple vertical lift lines between each pleat.
