The upholstery knit Planum has been designed by Raw Color for Kvadrat Febrik. The exhibition illustrates the textile's design process next to three projects developed by the studio. They showcase Planum's colour combinations potential in an interactive installation, a series of quilts and panels.
Planum is a knitted upholstery textile with a refined expression and a smooth, soft surface. It comes in colours crafted by Dutch Design Studio Raw Color. The studio explored diverse directions and shades before making a final selection of 20 tones from 350 hand-painted samples.
The process and results of Planum are the departure point of this exhibition called Project Planum.
The textile has been applied in several projects developed by the studio. The interactive installation Chroma Columns presents dynamic ever changing combinations of Planum's shades. This installation has been initially developed for KNIT! a project of Kvadrat Febrik with 28 international designers. A collection of Quilt's is presented for the first time together with a series of small scale panels that both explore the possibilities of colour combination within Planum's diverse palette.
The diversity of projects illustrate the studio’s multi faceted mentality in close collaboration with Kvadrat Febrik.
