In 2011 WooltexUK entered into a partnership with its major client Kvadrat who made an agreement to purchase a stake in the company. Based in Denmark and a family owned business Kvadrat are a European leader in high quality textiles for interiors. Their textiles have been used in some of the world’s most important architectural landmarks.
Kvadrat has been developing beautifully designed interior textiles since 1968 and the company is involved in over 3,000 building projects each year worldwide. They are renowned for excellence in design and sales and their partnership with WooltexUK creates a seamless supply chain. This has allowed them to introduce exciting new fabrics to clients in Europe and emerging markets across all sectors from hospitality to transportation.
Our fabrics, designed by Kvadrat were selected for the Arlanda Express, a Swedish express train that offers the fastest transport link between Stockholm Central Station and Arlanda Airport.
Seats were made from Clara in four colours. The designers chose Clara as they wanted a strong, fire resistant and ecologically focused fabric. The Arlanda Express is primarily used by business travellers – the fabric met their requirements for life, movement and colour.
Temple Restaurant Beijing
Remix, the bestselling Kvadrat textile, manufactured by WooltexUK, has been chosen for the seating at the Temple Restaurant Beijing, part of the boutique Temple Hotel. This is one of the most impressive dining venues in the city, located within the confines of a 600 year old temple complex close to the Forbidden City.
The cocktail lounge chairs, stools and dining chairs in the restaurant are upholstered with Remix in orange, yellow, red and beige.
Sheraton Zürich West
Kvadrat textiles, manufactured by WooltexUK, were chosen for the interior of the Sheraton Hotel Zurich which opened in January 2014. The hotel offers a vibrant, open atmosphere in the district of Zurich West – an area transformed from a former industrial district to a dynamic hub and focal point for art, culture and business.
The guest rooms are decorated with a wide range of WooltexUK fabrics including Steelcut and Zap. The public areas include seating for the bar in Divina Melange and Remix in the meeting and conference areas
The interior designers love to work with WooltexUK fabrics designed by Kvadrat – commenting that they are always moving forward with innovative fabrics and ideas.
Roksanda Ilincic Flagship Store
The flagship store is located in a grade II listed building in Mayfair. In the shop the mainly neutral colour palette is complemented with bursts of colour and mirrored surfaces which guide visitors. The office spaces contrast with this by combining vibrant blocks of colour, the walls are covered with fabric panels and soft finishes.
Divina and Divina Melange have been used to create this effect in the seating in the shop and wall panels in numerous areas.
