KVADRAT and Raf Simons’ collaboration is founded on a mutual appreciation for fine craftsmanship. The collection’s materials reflect both KVADRAT’s commitment to quality and Raf Simons’ refined elegance.
The renowned design master Raf Simons was fascinated by how the colouration and weaving processes for furnishing textiles are more complex than those for fashion textiles. Simons translates the subtle hues and texture of a tweed or bouclé fabric into textiles suitable for furniture. Because of the dense weave that is needed for furnishings, the colouration becomes even more interesting, with an almost painterly impact.
Raf Simons was previously a creative director, designing collections for Dior and Calvin Klein.
