01 product description
Point, the sixth textile collaboration between the renowned British fashion designer Paul Smith and the Maharam Design Studio, distinguishes itselves by a fusion of construction and pattern. A study in scale, density, rhythm, colour, and proportion, Point is a vibrant upholstery textile. It is available in 11 colours and 7 different geometric patterns, ranging from traditional to modern, which combine unique but related stripes that run from selvedge to selvedge. With so many different expressions, Point provides virtually endless opportunities for creating dynamic and individual interiors.
An imaginative evolution of Paul Smith's signature 'classics with a twist' style, Point offers a balanced construction chosen for its clarity of colour. It is woven with dense, semi- lustrous rayon yarns in the warp and weft, secured by a fine nylon binder. These form a gridded structure reminiscent of needlepoint and traditional gros point transport cloth.
All seven Point patterns are built from a single square unit and feature an individual repeat in the length, which varies from 29 cm to 79 cm. Importantly, these repeats are designed to be cut randomly, ensuring every piece of furniture upholstered with Point will look unique.
