Doshi Levien have created a collection of four distinct curtain textiles for Kvadrat. Lake and Utopia are densely woven with a subtle, diagonal pattern while Rocket and Fiction are two knitted curtains with a playful, contemporary look.
Initially inspired from hard and textured architectural surfaces like
concrete, glass and weathered metal, the studio continued their study
by creating a series of new surface textures and cast them in plaster.
Rocket and Fiction with their knitted construction
bring a novel approach to interior textiles. Made from Trevira CS, both
textiles offer soft draping and functional qualities. Like all knitted
fabrics, they are relatively crease-resistant. They also offer the
ability to provide warmth in still air environments, while
simultaneously enabling the movement of air.
‘We researched Le Corbusier’s tapestries and paintings in the city
of Chandigarh and were inspired by the brightly coloured buildings that
faded in the sun over time, making the colours dusty’.
