VITROCSA minimal windows

Founder of the company Orchidées Constructions SA in 1989 and inventor of the Vitrocsa minimalist window in 1992

The minimalist window

Uncluttered lines and maximum transparency. Vitrocsa windows have been invented in 1992 by designers trained in the rigours of the watchmaking industry and devoted to a resolutely contemporary vision of space and aesthetics. The philosophy is simple: less is more.

The company

Vitrocsa exports to all five continents, and over forty countries. Born from Orchidées Constructions SA, company founded in 1989 and based in Saint-Aubin-Sauges, in Switzerland, Vitrocsa is an innovative SME which, thanks to licensing contracts with a number of partners abroad, has a global reach.

A technical revolution

By turning the conventional principle behind window construction on its head, Vitrocsa has started a genuine revolution: the frameless glass takes on the load-bearing role formerly assumed by the frame. The entire space can then be dedicated to transparency. This fundamental technical principle, simple yet requiring complex technology, paves the way for innovative developments, an infinite range of versions and solutions tailored to customers’ specific needs.


Vitrocsa offers a number of special applications: sliding system, curved version, pivoting structure, invisible frame, guillotine, turnable corner. Playing with formal simplicity and maximum functionality, Vitrocsa is to the window what Haute Horlogerie is to a high street watch. The leading names in international architecture have worked with Vitrocsa, notably Norman Foster (UK), Eduardo Souto de Moura (Portugal), Shigeru Ban (Japan), and Swiss architects Andrea Bassi, Vincent Mangeat, Boschetti architectes and Gigon/Guyer.
