Raf Simons Ria cushion - 741, 45x45cm

By Kvadrat

£159.00

  • Description

    The Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection brings the acclaimed designer's exceptional sense of style to the home. Distinguished by the innovative blending of colour and materials for which he is known in the fashion world, Raf Simons's first collection of textiles and accessories for the home is by turns sophisticated and playful, 
and produced according to the exacting standards associated with Kvadrat. Conceived as a suite of diverse yet complementary tones, weaves and textures, the eleven core textile designs are suitable for use in a wide variety of interiors, and work beautifully together in a multitude of inventive combinations.
    For this first collection, Raf Simons chose to offer a refreshing alternative to the flat woven textiles commonly used in contemporary upholstery, creating richly textured, meticulously realised designs that bring a sculptural quality and a new tactility to furnishings.

    The use of colour in Ria takes inspiration from Pointillism, the painterly technique through which vibrant fields of colour are built up through the application of pure pigment in precise, individual dots.

    Raf Simons

    Born in Belgium in 1968, Simons studied industrial design in Genk. Inspired by the work of designers such as Martin Margiela, he moved to Antwerp, where the head of the Fashion Department at the city’s Royal Academy encouraged him to start his own label without further study. Launched in 1995, Raf Simons menswear – informed both by classic tailoring and youth culture – had a huge impact on the style of the decade. In 2005 Simons became artistic director of the Jil Sander label, which under his tenure became known for its vital, sophisticated modernism. Raf Simons is currently creative director of Dior Women, a position that he has held since 2012. A passionate collector of contemporary art and modern design, Simons’s aesthetic is often informed by his admiration for art and he regularly engages in interdisciplinary collaborations.
