London Design Festival 2017, London Explore the 'My Canvas' microsite
In honour of Kvadrat’s fruitful 13-year collaboration with Italian designer Giulio Ridolfo, we invited designers to create unique works using Ridolfo’s distinctive Canvas upholstery textile. The brief was left open to interpretation and the results were unveiled at the exhibition ’My Canvas’, shown at Somerset House during London Design Festival 2017.
Giulio Ridolfo has worked as a textile and colour advisor to some of the world’s leading fashion and design brands and conjured some of the company’s most successful textiles. ‘His feeling and approach to colour is unique,’ commends Kvadrat CEO Anders Byriel. ‘Surprising colour combinations of yarns give every textile by his hand a three-dimensional and surprising depth.’
