We are proud to present the world´s first upholstery textile crafted from 100% ocean bound polyester. Sport is an upholstery textile that unites a vibrant, high-tech contemporary expression with a compelling sustainability profile. It is Kvadrat’s first textile woven from ocean-bound polyester, a recycled material made from plastic waste collected within 10 km from shore.
Drawing inspiration from sportswear and technical fabrics, Patricia Urquiola designed a highly innovative upholstery textile in bright and vibrant tones. Reminiscent of contemporary and vintage sportswear, Sports incorporates a scale of rich, warm and cold accents, and neutral notes.
Unlike conventional polyester textiles, which are traditionally flat, Sport has a sophisticated binding that adds tactile multidimensionality to its structure. Tiny graphic floral forms play across its surface, infusing the upholstery with a characterful, intricate expression.
Sport comes in a versatile selection of 20 colourways. Its exceptional colour richness results from three different coloured yarns used in its construction. Sports´s pallette incorporates a scale of rich, warm and cold accents, and neutral notes, giving the textile a blood look.
