Journey from pastoral to industrial
The celebrated collaboration between Kvadrat and Peter Saville opens a sensorial, thoughtful new chapter with the launch of Technicolour – a craft-orientated, sculptural collection that visually and haptically translates the industrial processes in textile production. The name relates to the spectrum of bold hues commonly used to mark flocks of sheep that are spectacularly incongruous in pastoral settings.
Controlled accidents and traces of the reality of nature are expressed throughout Technicolour, which exemplifies Peter Saville’s eye for articulate colour compositions. The collection has its roots in the curiosity he’s always had about the random industrial-coloured markings on sheep which he first observed on family holidays in Wales. Peter has likened this to ‘rural graffiti’.
