Tratto, meaning traction or stretch in Italian, is a unique screen made from stretched CNC cut Belting Leather held in traction within an aluminum frame. Designed by noted architect, Emanuela Frattini Magnusson, the screen acts as an impactful feature wall or space divider in 26 colors of Belting Leather. The leather is sliced and stretched creating sculptural shapes with an interesting play of positive and negative space. The screen affords space separation without blocking light or sight lines and is materially efficient since it stretches the leather to more than twice its length.

Appropriate for contract, hospitality, and residential environments, Tratto is available in several standard widths and heights and multiple screens may be linked together. The screening system ships complete with top and bottom suspension hardware as well as suspension cable that may be cut to length to accommodate varying existing conditions.
