Salone, viewed critically 03: Business recycles
by Thomas Wagner | 4/13/2017
The whirlwind of new products blinds the eye to the true innovations. These are now taking place in the field of recycled materials.
Pine and Maple are two complimentary upholstery textiles designed by Åsa Pärson. Inspired by the beauty of forests, they are woven with viscose, a lustrous cellulose fibre that is extracted from wood.
Aero-finished and therefore extremely soft to the touch, Pine and Maple are made with three tone-in-tone coloured yarns. The viscose used in their construction gives them a distinctive shimmer, which deepens according to the light and the perspective of the viewer.
Pine is flat-woven and has a subtle striated look. Maple is woven with a chenille yarn and has a soft pile that reveals the structure of the weave. Foreign fibres and small clusters of colour may appear on the textiles’ surface adding to their slightly irregular, casual expression. Both textiles come in colourways that range from light to dark. In some, the contrast between the yarns is pronounced; in others it is much less distinctive. The colour palette for Pine and Maple combines an extensive selection of neutrals. It also offers a few bolder shades, such as deep bottle green and bright orange – tones reminiscent of Japanese maple trees.
