Life is a collage of the natural and the cultural.
The Quotes collection explores this idea by quoting aspects of lived urban and organic experiences – investigating these interactions through bold graphics and vibrant material dimensions in contrasting colour expressions.
At its core, Quotes articulates the power of signature pattern by translating geometrics into their raw essence through kinetic scaling and layering. Simultaneously, energetic interplays between proportion, yarn and materiality become central through dialogues of refined organic and human-made materials and techniques.
At the urban end of the scale, the designs in the collection crafted in collaboration with acclaimed artist Alain Biltereyst – all named Untitled – translate the iconic graphic language of his paintings into the medium of soft, fluid textiles.
At the organic end of the scale, tactile plains illuminate intricate connections between downsized, subtle, soft-toned structures and pure natural materials. Ranging from matt and dense to shimmering and transparent, they unite intriguing surface qualities that play with perception with meticulous constructions which evoke a comforting sense of flow and order.
While scaling, layering and materialised geometry form the collection’s narrative, colours provide complex tonality. The Quotes palette comprises minimalistic neutrals and tones between light and shadow, which balance upscaled graphic forms and add multidimensionality to the plains. Complementing these monochrome notes, signal colours inspired by urban elements, such as logos and signs, accentuate texture and structure to reveal eye-catching contrasts.
Virtually every environment we find ourselves in reveals a rhythm of human and natural creations. By casting fresh light into this everchanging dynamic, Quotes connects our interiors with the outside and invites us to reclaim our urban spaces.
Isa Glink, Creative Director. “Quotes stands for simplicity of shape and refined materiality that expresses the underlying geometry of weaving constructions. Alain Biltereyst’s work perfectly complements the concept behind the collection.”
Alain Biltereyst, artist. “I want people to discover the beauty of the everyday, not only the natural landscapes but the human-made forms and signs. They are the traces we leave behind as human beings.”
