Tempo is a new, stretchable upholstery fabric in a light gauge of Trevira. The fabric’s easily stretchable quality makes it well suited for upholstering contemporary, organically shaped furniture. The Dutch textile designer Frans Dijkmeijer designed the weave. The unique quality is that the structure enables him to obtain a very elastic material that he otherwise would have only been able to produce using elastic. As a result, Trevira CS retains its fine flame-retardant features.
British designer Georgina Wright has created the range of colours. The range is constructed so that most shades are neutral and slightly underplayed and go well in every context. The range also includes a handful of bright accent colours that can be combined for effects or used to draw out the colours of the subdued tones. Although both designers have made their own designs for Kvadrat in the past, this Tempo teamwork marks their first joint project. The colours and fine wearability make Tempo well suited for the private and contract sectors alike.
