Tenara® respectively pure PTFE fabric – one of the most valuable membrane materials has been chosen by the architects and professionally practiced by Temme // Obermeier.  Not even the perfect material properties (such as staying always white, no turn into yellow) but also the marvelous properties in handling for a light ceiling have been taken into consideration. Due its stretching qualities but likely high form stability it is perfect for flat tensioned frame systems. These properties have been used perfectly by the team of T//O.
