Reinterpreting history: Archival collection by KnollTextiles

KnollTextiles launched the Archival collection, inspired by – as the name suggests – the archives. Five new upholstery fabrics reinterpret textiles from the company’s history over 65 years.

Based on a midcentury stripe by Swedish textile designer Astride Sampe, Striae Stripe is available in eight updated colorways. Kingston is a solid based on Florence Knoll’s own Plain Linen from 1953; this fabric was updated with polyurethane and ceramic skim coat atop a cotton ground. Radiance also stems from the 1950s and reinterprets Puli, which was designed by Marianne Strengell. Melange, an Italian wool with a heathered finish, is based on Galaxy from 1984. Lastly, Liberty updates 1959’s Sahara, a wool/cotton textured fabric.
