Peter Saville Designs His Inaugural Textile Series for Kvadrat
Famed British graphic designer, art director, and cultural force Peter Saville masterminds his inaugural textile series for Kvadrat, for whom he has long served as a creative consultant. Technicolour derives its concept and palette from the incongruously industrial hues farmers use to mark sheep in the Welsh countryside, a curiosity Saville likens to “rural graffiti.” Joining upholstery and curtain fabrics are three rugs pairing untreated wool tones and contrasting DayGlo hues. Crafted from pure new wool and cotton are Flock, whose irregular weft yarns are created by randomly spinning colored tufts of wool by hand, and Fleece, which features random sparks of color naturally sprinkled across an irregular, unsheared surface. The ombre Field, in Day and Night colorways (can you guess which is which?), is tufted (by robots!) of bamboo viscose. “The collection elements offer an experience of texture and color, ranging from the expressionistic to the subliminal,” Saville explains. We’re flocking to them.
