Kvadrat introduces Twill Weave to its product collection.

Twill Weave brings a contemporary interpretation of the classic woolen twill upholstery textile.

It is crafted by American designer Jonathan Olivares.

Originally designed for the Twill Weave daybed, which Jonathan Olivares created in 2016, Twill Weave features the same weave pattern as carbon fiber – the material used for the bed’s frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Twill Weave derives its full-bodied structure from thick, voluminous woolen yarns. It is constructed with a traditional twill binding, using meticulous production processes to ensure exceptional color precision.

Each colorway for Twill Weave units two tone-in-tone colors – one in the warp, the other in the weft. These combine to accurately reflect the actual colors of minerals, metals, and ceramics from Harvard University’s extensive  Materials Collection.

The resulting colorways bear the colors of the earth and are conceptually and visually linked with carbon fiber.

Jonathan Olivares: ‘To develop the colors, I looked to pigments – like the charcoal grey of carbon – that occur naturally within the earth’s crust. The resulting colorways bear the colors of the earth and are conceptually and visually linked with carbon fiber.' 

Like the natural materials they are based on,  Twill Weave’s colorways deliver different levels of contrast. Some appear almost unicoloured and offer subtle reflections; others look more striped and have a three-dimensional expression.
