Swedish multidisciplinary design/architecture office Claesson Koivisto Rune were inspired by silk, “the way some fine silks have a delicate gradient dichromatic feature” for their ‘Chromatic’ furniture fabric collection.
“A highest quality jaquard woven furniture fabric equals the finest quality of anything, say like the finest silk. And it asks for the same respect. In fact, for Chromatic, the inspiration is silk.” says CKR. Väveriet, established in 1895, is specialised in jacquard woven upholstery.
“The two-colour effect is subtle and the report is rather long. When upholstering – for best effect – the idea is to not seek match where two fabric pieces are sewn together or adjacent.”
Claesson Koivisto Rune is presenting their new furniture fabric at the 2013 Stockholm Furniture Fair.
