Andreu World + Kvadrat: Introducing Glow

Andreu World and Kvadrat have joined forces in a collaboration that shares the innovative, technological and sustainable aspects of their production processes, creativity and design. They present Glow, a fabric originally designed by the expert weaver Frans Dijkmijer, whose archive was donated to Kvadrat by the family after his death.

A classic wool fabric that Giulio Ridolfo has updated with a contemporary touch from a fresh and modern color palette. With a seemingly random and slightly striated design, Glow is woven in a Jacquard loom, a method used to create particularly detailed and precise designs.

As a result, Glow is characterized by its intriguing interaction between pattern and structure. It is constructed with single-color threads for the warp and weft and an additional mix yarn in each weft. This results in a refined blend that ranges from clearly visible and defined drawings to almost tone-on-tone combinations.

Glow has been created by Kvadrat to meet the needs of the new workspaces and is also recommended for the domestic environment. Andreu World presents it in a worldwide exclusive, applied to a selection of pieces from its latest collections that make it feel like a tailored suit.

Many of the “Glow” colors are part of the palette that Giulio Ridolfo has created during the last years for the Danish company. For example, some of the single-color threads come from the Steelcut fabric, while some of the mixed threads are the same as in Canvas and Remix.

Ronda combines the textile texture with the warmth of the wooden base. 

However, these threads are now combined in new ways, creating intense and deep tones clearly associated with the work characteristic of Ridolfo.

The Chicago showroom hosted Glow's presentation during NeoCon international trade fair, which annually brings together the new collections and trends of furniture and equipment for work and contract spaces in the United States.
