Kvadrat at 3 Days of Design 2018

Kvadrat presents its first outdoor textile Patio on new furniture collection Brea by award-winning British design duo Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for DEDON.

Patio is Kvadrat's first upholstery textile especially developed for outdoors. A result of 3 years intensive research into innovative and environmentally sound water repellent finishes, Patio sets a new standard for outdoor textiles both in terms of properties and look and feel while being 100% free of fluorocarbon.

To celebrate this new venture into outdoor textiles, Kvadrat joined forces with DEDON to present Patio on the new furniture collection BREA by award-winning British design duo Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, who will present the collection during 3 Days of Design. 


Kvadrat × Really: Circular by Design
Benjamin Hubert will present Shift

Really’s second edition of Circular by Design made headlines at this year’s Salone del Mobile, and get its Scandinavian premiere during Copenhagen’s 3 Days of Design.

Seeking a balance between the real and the intangible, Kvadrat and Really invited seven designers from around the world to demonstrate the potential of Solid Textile Board and Acoustic Textile Felt made from upcycled end-of-life textile for use in furniture and interiors. 


British designer Benjamin Hubert will be in Copenhagen to present his work, Shift, a modular, flexible display and storage system for retail use. In its ‘still’ position, Shift is a flat acoustic wall panel. From this static state, elements fold open to serve as display shelves and storage. Elegantly engineered without using screws or bolts in its construction, kerfs cut into the shelves allow them to unfurl like a textile and brackets swing out to support these horizontal surfaces.
