Secco - The Evolution of Steel Windows
The Evolution of Steel Windows
Seminar, by Secco
The title says it all. A seminar that follows the evolution of steel windows from practical medium to source of inspiration. Discover how steel windows can be a strong design statement, using stainless steel, corten steel, brass or narrow sightlines. Steel windows offer the freedom to create.

Secco has played an active role in the evolution of windows and doors for 70 years, as an innovator and inventor of new systems and profiles. The company works with four metals: galvanised, stainless and corten steel, and brass. These are, of course, now industry benchmarks, but Secco continues to work tirelessly to improve and reinterpret them into contemporary designs that surprise and delight.
