Concept

Doshi Levien have created a collection of four distinct curtain textiles for Kvadrat.Initially inspired from hard and textured architectural surfaces like concrete, glass and weathered metal, the studio continued their study by creating a series of new surface textures and cast them in plaster.

The play of light and shadow on the relief of their output resulted in the graphic pattern of Utopia, while the iridescent and luminous quality of brushed aluminium and glass is interpreted in the fine diagonal twill of Lake. Utopia features jacquard-woven diagonal lines in varying dimensions that are divided into larger squares. Creating a subtle contrast with the matte background, Lake’s twill pattern emerges as you get closer to the textile.

Both textiles are constructed with slightly shiny yarns in the warp and matte uni-coloured yarns in the weft. Lake and Utopia are also linked by their colour schemes. Their palettes comprise dusty natural tones, dark masculine hues as well as a few highlight nuances. Consequently, they complement each other well. Both curtains are well suited to private spaces and contract environments alike.
