Interwoven: Kvadrat Textile and Design
One of the world's leading textile manufacturers, Kvadrat have been pioneers of Scandinavian style for four decades; their fabrics have become essential components of the most exquisite modern interiors. From the classic modern designs of the 1960s and 1970s to the vibrant, ecologically and technologically advanced styles of today, Kvadrat have worked together with some of the pioneers of twentieth century art and design, such as Nanna Ditzel and Verner Panton, and nurtured important relationships with some of the world's most creative artists, architects and designers such as David Adjaye, Patricia Urquiola, Roman Signer, Thomas Demand, and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. This beautiful volume designed by Graphic Thought Facility celebrates the textiles of Kvadrat, drawing a thread from their deep roots in the coastal landscape of Denmark to their herd of Icelandic sheep, bred and reared by artist Olafur Eliasson. Filled with color photographs and fascinating texts, the book highlights specific themes that characterize Kvadrat's association with the likes of Tord Boontje, Akira Minagawa, Finn Skodt, and Sevil Peach; and their influence in the field of textile design in offices, entertainment venues, and the home.
