Directors talk about Orama Minimal Frames

Orama was founded in Greece in 2013 as a partnership between an experienced import company and a major extrusion unit. Today, Orama maintains a widespread international network of partners, dealers and representatives as well as an experienced in-house product development team and exceptional manufacturing facilities. Here are a few words from George Tsimpikos, managing director and Francis Flamant, export manager to the questions of an architect.

George Tsimpikos • Managing Director

Why did you decide to create Orama Minimal Frames?

In Greek, ORAMA means vision (όραμα).We started Orama in order to transform our expertise as minimal window dealers into producing a high-end aluminum system, dedicated to fulfilling every architects’ vision.

What makes Orama an innovative frame solution?

Our system development is based on the exploration of challenging window layouts assigned to us by architects and contractors. Our efforts are focused on standardizing these – often extraordinary – solutions into products that combine modern aesthetics with certified performance.

What kind of buildings can get Orama specified for?

Orama Minimal Frames can be installed in any kind of construction. From a glass extension to an existing house to a multi-storey hotel or an office building. However, our windows prefer breathtaking views, beautiful sceneries, large openings and minimal aesthetics.

Can Orama deliver frames for large-scale projects?

Of course! We have already realized large-scale installations in Rome, Milan, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and other cities. Soon, new projects in Dubai, South France, and India will expand our international presence.

Francis Flamant • Export Manager

Is Orama a technical consultant apart from a windows supplier?

We consider Orama more of a system supplier rather than a window supplier. This requires a very experienced and skilled technical team to monitor the manufacturing and the installation of our frames all over the world.

How does the future look like for window making?

The climate change and the call for environmental sensibility makes windows the most important and demanding parts of a building. Concurrently, contemporary architecture requires more and more open, large and luminous spaces, bringing humans and nature closer to each other than ever. In my opinion, along smart homes and 3D printed buildings, the window industry will congregate the highest level of progress and innovation.
