Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of window coverings, tasked Magrino with the U.S. media launch of its new, revolutionary one hundred percent blackout system, Duette® LightLock™. The patent-pending system was carefully engineered to prevent light leakage at the window and create a blissful, 100% room blackout effect for consumers.
Magrino knew that in order to make an impact on media and, in turn, consumer, the contrast between natural light and complete darkness had to be heightened. And what better place to highlight the contrast between light and dark than in Philip Johnson’s The Glass House, a house that is all about light. Magrino worked with the Hunter Douglas and The Glass House teams to ‘install’ the LightLock system throughout the house, creating a moment of total darkness, where senses were skewed, before the window treatments raised to allow in the natural light.
Magrino invited select top-tier editors, designers and influencers to The Glass House in New Canaan, CT where they experienced a tour of the property before the big reveal of the new LightLock system. Following the reveal, there was a seated lunch in Johnson’s famed Art Bunker.
