Revealing elements: Bouroullec Brothers’ knit upholstery collection for Kvadrat

Danish brand Kvadrat launched the Bouroullec Brothers’ knit upholstery collection, consisting of three tactile designs named Canal, Gravel and Moraine. Constructed using a double jersey knit, the three fabrics offer multi-directional stretchability and comfort. The knitted front layer of the textiles is made from melange wool and polyester yarns, which combines dark and light fibers. Meanwhile, the knitted back layer is made from unicolored polyester yarns in accent colors, providing firmness and structure, as well as a contrast with the wool.

To produce the patterns of the textiles, thick polyester threads are inserted between the two knitted layers, which are interlocked by knitting the back to the front layer. As a result of this construction, all the designs reveal elements of their internal structure on their surfaces.

Canal includes a geometric pattern of rectangles. Gravel has an abstract pattern of tiny dots. Meanwhile, Moraine comprises differently sized dots and shapes.
