Raf Simons’ third collection for Kvadrat explores the stripe in upholstery textiles, taking its inspiration from Modernist furniture, Pop and contemporary art, fashion textiles and music. In the new designs Reflex, Pulsar and Fuse, the stripe theme is carried out in varying degrees of graphic boldness through the use of textured yarns and subtly fragmented colour.
Each of the three textile designs comes in a handful of colourways across three sizes of cushions. While feeling fresh and contemporary, the palette, including cobalt blue and fiery red, sharp lemon yellow and powder pink as well as a range of greys and neutral tones, finds echoes in key colours of the earlier collections. As a result, designs from all three Kvadrat/Raf Simons collections can be used alongside one another to produce richly nuanced combinations of colour, texture and pattern within an interior scheme. In addition, the collection is further complemented by a particularly soft throw made from pure camel wool.
