Kvadrat Storylines & Unscripted
“Storylines” imagines thread as the line, yarn as the syntax and textile as the story. The collection brings a narrator’s eye to these concepts by exploring intervals between texture, pattern and colour. Multidimensional materiality becomes the medium for storytelling, as surprising new narratives continuously emerge. We translate the unique concept of the collection into a visual storyline.
- Brand Experience
Movement ebbs and flows through “Storylines”. Seen from inside a space, lines emerge from the curtains as sculptural drapes, cascading stripes, and vibrant pleats. When looking out, views are transformed into constellations of lines and diffuse colours. Together with the changing light, the collection unveils eye-catching rhythmic lines and prismatic colour dynamics throughout the day. Multidimensional materiality becomes the medium for storytelling, as surprising new narratives continuously emerge. We translate the concept of this collection into a visual storyline for all Kvadrat channels.
Designed by Creative Director Isa Glink and team, the curtain collection comprises a selection of plains, pleats and patterns in a wide range of weights from diaphanous to dimout. Shaping the experience of diversity, meticulous weaving constructions and finishes create curious parallels with lines of dialogue. Whether cut, shrunk, soft-washed or colour-printed, the curtains express sensuous graphic and tactile dimensions.
Unscripted by Sarah Illenberger
Intrigued by the free spirit of scribbles that people create while trying out pens, pencils and crayons, the artist Sarah Illenberger has collected test papers from art supply shops for a long time. She has curated and recomposed these spontaneous inscriptions into a colourful edition of printed textile panels. Entitled Script_One, Script_Two and Script_Three, these tactile transformations, which complement the playful plain curtain Blow, invite us to take a second look at what we would otherwise glance over.
