The slats of a venetian blind are usually suspended tapes which are strip of clothes. An alternative to tapes are cords. When making use of cords, all the slats can be rotated together through almost 180 degrees.
These slats could be rotated in a way that they would overlap with a side faced inward and in the other direction in a way that they would overlap with the second side faced inward. Between these two extremes, multiple levels of separation could be achieved between the slats via the variation of the rotation.
Venetian blinds have lift cords that are passed through various slots in every slat. When the cords are being dragged, the blind’s bottom shifts upward thereby making the lowest slats press the following apex slat’s underside when the blind is raised.
