DESIGNS on the OUTDOORS
After three years of research, Kvadrat has launched its first outdoor fabric. Designed by Copenhagen-based Karina Nielsen Rios, ‘Patio’ is a vibrant upholstery textile in 24 colourways made from specially developed yarns to be fast-drying and water-repellent (it is resistant to chlorine and seawater, too). Depending on the level of contrast between the yarns (there are two colours: one in the warp, the other in the weft), it appears to be either a single hue or textured. Suitable for parasols as well as furniture. £85 per metre ( kvadrat.dk).
