For his new collection of three upholstery textiles Stick Tree, Crystal Field and Forest Nap and curtain textile Frost Garden, Akira Minagawa interpreted different natural patterns.
Woollen Forest Nap is an upholstery textile, which can be described as the base textile in the Akira Minagawa collection. Non-patterned, it has a simple, plain weave. Forest Nap comes in 18 colourways ranging from understated natural hues to bolder notes like bright red.
Stick Tree is an embroidered woollen upholstery textile with a Forest Nap base. Its pattern consists of oblong sticks which together form tree shapes. Stick Tree comes in 11 colourways ranging from pronounced to understated.
Crystal Field is a highly structured, dense épinglé upholstery textile. The design combines geometric shapes constructed from dots, which break down into different patterns. Crystal Field comes in 8 intense combinations of blues, greens, browns and cream tones.
Frost Garden is a translucent curtain with a precise, repeated ‘naïve flower’ pattern. This emerges from the fabric differently according to the light – and when the curtain catches the wind. The pattern is created with a special weave that resembles lace. Frost Garden comes in 8 matte, frosted colourways, which have a mineral-like character.
All four designs are well-suited to contract environments and private spaces alike.
