Product description

In this project the designers wanted to achieve a graceful rounded three-dimensional surface using the most simple pattern - a singular linear strip. Turning flat material into three dimensional volumetric shapes can be done in many ways: from pattern making in fashion to complex origami folding. This project is all about the effortlessness of its geometry.

To emphasize the simplicity of a rectangular strip being turned into this rounded curvaceous armchair the designers used Kvadrat Hallingdal 65 textile, a ‘warp and woof’ fabric, where two different coloured yarns are woven perpendicular to each other. By pulling out the warp, the longitudinal thread in a roll, more of the woof’s colour is exposed thus creating a linear graphic that emphasises the shape and geometry of Kenny.
