Pvilion designs and manufactures flexible PV solar structures and products. Ranging from solar powered charging stations to solar powered curtains, building facades and clothing, its expertise is in the integration of all steps along the process.
Pvilion is a creative business located deep in the heart of DUMBO, Brooklyn. Its design offices and manufacturing facilities provide its clients a one stop shop for all of their solar needs.
Nothing is manufactured without the process taken into consideration, and nothing is designed without mass-production, installation and shipping in mind.
