The perfect office
Vitra presented working environments by Sevil Peach, Konstantin Grcic and Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby at Orgatec 2018. What is the idea behind the "Work" concept? Anna Moldenhauer interviewed Jonathan Olivares.
Twill Weave brings a contemporary interpretation to the
classic woollen twill upholstery textile. It is crafted by
American designer Jonathan Olivares.
Originally designed for the Twill Weave daybed, which
Jonathan Olivares created in 2016, Twill Weave features
the same weave pattern as carbon fibre – the material used
for the bed’s frame.
Twill Weave derives its full-bodied structure from thick,
voluminous woollen yarns. It is constructed with a traditional
twill binding, using meticulous production processes to
ensure exceptional colour precision.
Each colourway for Twill Weave units two tone-in-tone
colours – one in the warp, the other in the weft. These
combine to accurately reflect the actual colours of minerals,
metals and ceramics from Harvard University’s extensive
Jonathan Olivares: “To develop the colours, I looked to
pigments – like the charcoal grey of carbon – that occur
naturally within the earth’s crust. The resulting colourways
bear the colours of the earth, and are conceptually and
visually linked with carbon fibre.”
Like the natural materials they are based on, Twill Weave’s
colourways deliver different levels of contrast. Some
appear almost unicoloured and offer subtle reflections;
others look more striped and have a three-dimensional
Robust and versatile, Twill Weave is well-suited to both public and private spaces.
