LDF 2014: Kvadrat x Alfredo Häberli

Kvadrat x Alfredo Haberli

Danish textiles brand Kvadrat has become a London Design Festival highlight with a new collection of knitted textiles created with Argentine-Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli.

Two of the three textiles feature a tactile, quilted effect – Nebula's pixelated design is based around Japanese florals, while Nadir has an abstract feel created by overlapping and interlocking circles. The third textile, Galaxy, is flatter in texture, with a small-scale pattern inspired by clusters of stars.

Designed to be mixed and matched with other textiles in the same range, each design features two colours and is available in a range of colourways. The textiles are designed without a particular orientation in mind, making them suitable for upholstery as they can be used any way up.

To launch his third collection with the textiles brand, Häberli brought a slice of his studio to Kvadrat's London showroom with a display of collaged objects that represent the 3D moodboards that inspire his work.

The range is the third collection of textile knits the brand has produced this year – see our coverage of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec's designs from Milan Design Week 2014.

Look out for more coverage from London Design Festival 2014, coming soon, or catch up with the team throughout the week via Instagram and Twitter – see hashtag #StylusLDF14. In the meantime, have a look back at our reports from last year's event.
