Product description

Basel is a subtle and sophisticated woollen upholstery textile, designed for the Grand Hall of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. Available in ten versions, it offers a wide variety of expressions, ranging from formal to informal, smooth to rough, and dark to light. Basel comes in five different patterns, each of which is available in black or white. These are characterised by unique, fine structures created with simple bindings. The difference between them is the manner in which they are constructed. Consequently, whilst they all feature small, precise shapes, the size and form of the shapes for each pattern is different: some are little triangles, others small squares or ovals.

The patterns combine very well, and when used together, project a strong sense of tactility and complexity. For instance, placing differently upholstered chairs next to one another creates an eye-catching and intricate look – they are related yet each chair has its own character. Thanks to the versatility Basel offers, it is suitable for a wide range of contexts, from offices and concert halls to hotels and private homes. Importantly, it meets all the requirements for contract usage. Furthermore, it offers high content of renewable fibres and is therefore suitable for those looking for a textile with a reduced environmental impact; for instance, architects or interior designers working with LEED certified buildings.
