Sport is a recycled polyester upholstery textile that unites a vibrant, high-tech contemporary expression with a compelling sustainability profile. It is the world´s first recycled polyester upholstery textile entirely woven from ocean-bound plastic waste.
“The colours for Sport are divided into ‘salt and pepper’ monochrome nuances, which illuminate the textile’s high-tech graphic character, and solid shades which fade its texture away.”
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, Sport 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, which incorporates a scale of rich, warm and cold accents, and neutral notes, giving the textile a bold look. Its exceptional colour richness is derived from the three different coloured yarns used in its construction.
