The Raf Simons / Kvadrat collaboration is the meeting of two artisans: the Danish textile company and the Belgian designer, both noted for their use of colour, rich fabric and a modernist approach to design.
The Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection brings the acclaimed designer’s exceptional sense of style to the home. Distinguished by the innovative blending of colour and materials for which he is known in the fashion world, Raf Simons’s first collection of textiles and accessories for the home is by turns sophisticated and playful, and produced according to the exacting standards associated with Kvadrat. Conceived as a suite of diverse yet complementary tones, weaves and textures, the eleven core textile designs are suitable for use in a wide variety of interiors, and work beautifully together in a multitude of inventive combinations.
For this first collection, Raf Simons chose to offer a refreshing alternative to the flat woven textiles commonly used in contemporary upholstery, creating richly textured, meticulously realised designs that bring a sculptural quality and a new tactility to furnishings.
The collection comprises throws, blankets, cushions and fabrics reminiscent of Simons’ A/W14 Dior pop-colour collection
