Launching new Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection

22-03-2017

New Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection unveiled with a special exhibition at the National Academy of Design in New York.

This fourth collection from Raf Simons and Kvadrat draws once more on the designer’s passion for modern and contemporary art: in this instance, the subtle use of colour associated with Pointillism, the artistic technique originating with Impressionist masters as Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Vincent van Gogh in the late 19th century.

Since 2014, over the course of four collections, Simons has found inspiration in a range of different eras and aesthetics, working with Kvadrat to produce textiles suited to a broad range of interior applications, always led by a desire to bring a richer, more nuanced application of colour and texture to the interior.

I was fascinated by how the colouration and weaving processes in fashion textiles don’t have the same limitations as those of furnishing textiles. Working with Kvadrat, we’ve been translating the subtle colouration and texture that you’d find perhaps in a tweed or bouclé into textiles suitable for use in furniture. Because of the dense weave that is needed for furniture, the colouration becomes even more interesting, with almost a painterly impact.” Raf Simons
