Nordhavn sends a textile message
by Fabian Peters | 12/8/2017
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec not only dream up textile designs for Kvadrat. They have also for the second time designed the label’s Copenhagen flagship showroom.
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’.
