Crypton and Designtex teamed up to introduce a special collection that pays homage to art, design, technology, performance and two leaders in the contract textile industry. Designtex 5x5, A Crypton Collection features five contemporary artists from around the world whose work is translated into five patterns in five colorways each, digitally printed onto Crypton-backed upholstery textiles.

Designtex commissioned the five artists and expanded their works into five colorways each to complete the collection. The 25 colorways are then digitally printed onto Crytpon-backed upholstery textiles at Designtex’s digital printing facility in Portland, Maine using a digital printing process that ensures a clarity of image and striking color. The featured artists include Arturo Guerrero (Line Variations), Elizabeth Atterbury (Social Dance), Ellie Malin (Five Cities), Kapitza (CrissCross), and Phillip David Stearns (BitDrift).

Designtex 5x5 is meant to also be a celebration of the two companies and the women behind them—Susan Lyons, president of Designtex and Randy Rubin, co-founder of Crypton.
