This year’s MilanDesign and styleWeek saw a sturdy contingent of earthy timbers, motley stones, and soft leathers, but there have been also individuals that took a leap in the other path presenting some brightly coloured collections. A single of which was Antwerp based textile firm Kvadrat with their ‘Davina’ project. We share the function of Belgian designers, Muller Van Severen, who were one particular of the 22 designers asked to design and style a a single-off piece for the set up.
On demonstrate as component of the Milan Layout Week 2014, Kvadrat’s Davina undertaking invited 22 designers to develop a one-off piece of furnishings that reinterpreted fabrics of the Davina selection.
Doing work among the realms of artwork and layout, Muller Van Severen presented a daybed created from layers of the softly textured wool material. The Antwerp based duo, masterminded by Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen, looked to the three distinct components of the daybed for the design – the place you sit, exactly where you lie and the cushion among the two – representing every part with a distinct colour.
The Davina textile assortment was created for Kvadrat in 1984, by a Danish painter and graphicartist Finn Skodt, and to this day is loved for the bold colours that make the assortment what it is.
Also portion of the exhibition had been designers Werner Aisslinger, Robert Stadler, Martino Gamper, Lindsey Adelman and Max Lamb.
