ReThink is the sixth edition of Kvadrat’s Design Projects.
Through a series of works by 12 emerging and established creatives, ReThink explores the potential of our textiles as a medium for expression. 

Ame is an upholstery textile designed by Teruhiro Yanagihara that embodies longevity and mindful reuse in its construction and aesthetic. It is the first Kvadrat textile woven with recycled polyester made entirely from textile waste, and features a design inspired by Sashiko, a traditional Japanese mending technique.

Introducing Today, a semi-transparent plain weave curtain textile with a light and gentle character, whose cotton-like structure evokes a natural look and feel. Today is made from a twisted, spun polyester yarn by Trevira CS eco, which is flame-retardant and derived from 100% recycled post-production waste.
