The new showroom for this manufacturer of premium textiles is located in Nordhavn - previously an industrial port district of Copenhagen, which is evolving into a residential area. The bright and expansive 795-square-metre showroom offers a panoramic view of this vibrant, trendy neighbourhood through windows on three sides. Kvadrat commissioned the French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to design the interior.
The two brothers have developed numerous projects together with Vitra. Selected fabrics from the Kvadrat collection are used on Vitra products, and Vitra has developed exclusive textiles in collaboration with Kvadrat. These synergies find expression in the new showroom. Airy structures, large-scale textile patterns and spare accents are paired with Vitra products – most of them designed by the Bouroullecs – to create a holistic retail environment. All cabinets and Tyde tables were custom made by Studio Bouroullec and Vitra made from Really Solid Textile Boards, high-quality engineered materials made from end-of-life cotton and wool from different industries.
