On the 8th of April the new Kvadrat/Raf Simons
collection will be unveiled during Salone del Mobile 2019 with a special installation at Garage 21.
Since their first collection in 2014, Kvadrat/Raf Simons have strived to push the limits of upholstery fabrics, using the designer’s unique aesthetic vision and Kvadrat’s unparalleled technical expertise. Simons’ knowledge of fashion, art, music and architecture have all played their part in the development of the textiles and accessories collection. The wide-ranging curiosity that informs Simons’ work as a fashion designer has influenced his work in developing these textiles for the interior, highlighting a discrete universe of elegantly modulated colours and textures that invite combination.
This season sees an evolution of the existing collection with further exploration of the microarchitecture of the textiles and yarns - a subject that has fascinated Raf Simons
from the very beginning of his career. Delving into his background with clothing, he has continued to work with heavy structures made from natural fibers such as wool, cotton, linen and viscose, resulting in four new textiles.
‘I am interested in all the qualities that have an origin in fashion like bouclé, tweed and corduroy… Because of the density that is needed for furniture in order to make it last in the long run, it becomes even more interesting I think,
’ Raf Simons.
