The elegance and versatility of KHEOPE Sail enhances Twiga Beach Club in Versilia

A fine restaurant and a night club, it is the most prestigious luxury beach resort in Italy. The client’s requirement was to cover a large area (370 sq.mt.) and Kheope sail by KE was the perfect choice. The need was to find a shading solution that was as light as possible. KE engineers suggested to create a customized coverage through Kheope motorized sail system, in order to provide a wide shading area, which creates a new outdoor enjoyable area.


For this particular installation, it has been necessary to completely redesign the sail to reach useful heights of more than 4 meters, with modular self-supporting sails, with the help of counterweight struts due to the height of the required poles. A unique design was born, with a play of lights and shadows, overlays, heights and inclinations, creating a brand new outdoor experience for guests.


The essential design of Kheope matches with any outdoor environment: the steel structure and nautical materials give a lightweight and modern feel to the sail. An innovative choice for tomorrow’s shading system.
