This autumn's news on the upholstery front is called Rock and has been designed by Eva Larsson. The name does not come from the history of music but from geology; it is minerals, the earth's building blocks, that with their patterns have provided the inspiration.
Imagine a surface of a rock. From a distance it looks completely red, but when you get closer a depth of shades emerges. The wool fabric Rock is structured in a similar way, thread by thread.
Oil painting from nature's paintbrush
Designer Eva Larsson explains how Rock was developed: "I wanted to create something new in all theplains. My inspiration was found in crushed minerals, walks in the forest and a piece of rusty iron that had been left outside and had received a nice patina. The pattern is created as an oil painting with a dark base and lighter tones on top".
Single-coloured with exciting effect
Rock is woven in wool and adds a new dynamic to Svensson's collection of single-coloured upholstery fabrics. "Something happens with ”Rock”, an excitement that brings a nice balance to other fabrics", says Eva Larsson.
Form with function
The design effect does not only provide a visual depth, it also provides a pattern that is easy to adapt to different settings. The new pattern is available in 30 colours and can be ordered now.
