Despite the fact that it’s largely an ingredient brand and doesn’t produce or sell tangible objects, Kvadrat—a Danish supplier of high-quality textiles—has earned cult status among design-minded customers. Kvadrat’s roster of collaborators includes such fashion, art and design luminaries as Benja Harney, Raf Simons and Pipilotti Rist, and through these creative projects with talent beyond its own corporate culture, Kvadrat is able to challenge tradition in the textile manufacturing industry.
In its latest project, Knit!, Kvadrat brings together some 28 designers from around the world to explore the infinite potential of knitted textiles for furniture and interior spaces, with each selected for their curiosity in experimenting with material, form and colour. Employing the form-shaping ability of Kvadrat’s knitted textiles, the resultant objects and installations demonstrate the breadth of possibility inherent in the fabric. Originally showcased in Copenhagen as part of the 3daysofdesign festival, the Knit! exhibition has been made available to a global audience through an interactive digital platform. Herewith, we present three of our favourite pieces.

Making Money Moves
Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure does help to alleviate stress and uplift moods, even if it may be deemed temporary. But is retail therapy just a fancy excuse to shop, or does it actually work?
The works and names of late artists live on and gain multiple reincarnations via a medium that has often been derided as ‘not art’, writes Asri Jasman.
