French designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec will be showing three collections of 3D knitted fabric for Danish design brand Kvadrat at Milan Design Week 2014 in April.
“Constructed using a double jersey knit, the collections reveal new surfaces of slightly quilted fabric combining the stretch flexibility and firmness necessary to upholster a wide variety of shapes with the possibility of less points of stitching.” say the Bouroullecs.
The knitted front layer of the textiles is made from fine mix of wool and polyester yarns, which combines dark and light fibres. “This ensures that they have a sensuous touch and feature a rich play of warm, delicate and irregular colour nuances.”
The knitted back layer is made from unicoloured polyester yarns, in accent colours, providing firmness and structure.
The collections will be launched at Kvadrat’s Milan showroom at Corso Monforte 15, 20122 Milan from April 8 to April 13, 2014.
