future objects of the season
There is a growing interest in desirable objects, innovative materials and sophisticated colours this season. The Raf Simons x Kvadrat collaboration is the merge of fashion, fabrics and furniture. The Belgian designer and creative director for Dior woman and the Danish textile company Kvadrat have with the new textile collection created a modern approach to design – rich on colour and texture.
The collection is made on the mutual respect of good craftsmanship, based on the well-known innovative approach of Kvadrat and the refined and sophisticated feel of Raf Simons colour palette. The outcome of the collaboration is 11 new fabrics that can be turned into pillows, armrests on chairs & couches. A sneak peak of the fabric collection was shown on the runway at Raf Simon’s “Sterling Ruby” A/W14 men’s wear collection in Paris earlier this year. Some of the coats in the collection were created of more than 75 different patches of fabrics from the Kvadrat collection, launched later this year.
With Kvadrat’s history as the leading manufacturer of furnishing fabrics, since 1968, the company has a long side shown the ability to embrace innovation and pushing the aesthetics, technological and artistic boundaries in both fabrics, colours and the design direction. This innovative design dedication combined with Raf Simon’s background in both industrial and fashion design, gives the collection an aesthetic sensibility and tactility, which adds a touch of newness to the interior scene where furniture meets fashion.
The result is simply – future objects for the coming season!
