Product description

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.

The play of light and shadow on the relief of their output resulted in the graphic pattern of Utopia, while the iridescent and luminous quality of brushed aluminium and glass is interpreted in the fine diagonal twill of Lake. Utopia features jacquard-woven diagonal lines in varying dimensions that are divided into larger squares. Creating a subtle contrast with the matte background, Lake’s twill pattern emerges as you get closer to the textile.

‘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’.
