Kvadrat at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018

31-01-2018

A textile launch exhibition by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in Södermalm and exquisite acoustic curtains along with an intriguing new stand concept at the fairgrounds will be at the centre of our presentation at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair.

We are launching a new refined collection of graphic, sculptural curtains, designed by renowned French designers Ronan and
Erwan Bouroullec. To celebrate the launch, the Bouroullecs have created a site-specific textile installation exhibited at the spacious, soon-to-open new Kvadrat flagship showroom at Åsögatan in Södermalm. The occasion will double as a sneak preview of what will become our new Stockholm address, also under the creative direction of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and open to the public later in 2018.

Ronan Bouroullec: “Embroidery has always been something important to me. The area where we come from, Brittany, has a long tradition about it. I remember the traditional clothes with gold yarns from when I was a young child. Since this period, I have always had an interest for it – the delicacy, the lightness, the relation with drawings of this technique.”


At the fairgrounds, we introduce an intriguing new stand concept to take visitors on a visual and spacial journey of our tactile universe and experience this winter’s new upholstery textiles by Akira Minagawa and Louise Sigvardt, a sumptuous line of rugs by Hella Jongerius, along with the Kinnasand collection of textiles and rugs, SPACE TUNES.

In addition to the winter news, we are presenting new acoustic curtains by Petra Haikonen and Patricia Urquiola, an innovative new product range adding to Kvadrat’s nuanced portfolio.
