Ronan & Erwan Bouroulllec are unveiling their latest project for Kvadrat – three collections of 3D knitted and stretch upholstery fabric – in Milan
Ronan & Erwan Bouroulllec are unveiling their latest project for Kvadrat: three collections of 3D knitted and stretch upholstery fabric. They are: Canal, Moraine and Gravel.
Constructed using a double jersey knit, the collections reveal new surfaces of slightly quilted fabric combining the stretch flexibility and firmness necessary to upholster a wide variety of shapes with the possibility of less points of stitching.
The knitted front layer of the textiles is made from fine melange wool and polyester yarns, which combines dark and light fibres. This ensures that they have a sensuous touch and feature a rich play of warm, delicate and irregular colour nuances.
The knitted back layer is made from unicoloured polyester yarns, in accent colours. These provide firmness and structure.
The Canal, Moraine and Gravel collections will be launched during the Salone del Mobile at Kvadrat’s Milan showroom at
Corso Monforte 15, 20122 Milan, Apr. 8-13.
