New fabrics inspired by the design philosophy and culture of Japan
New York, NY—KnollTextiles is pleased to launch Azuma, a textile collection inspired by the balance and harmony found in Japanese design philosophy and culture. The name Azuma means 'East.' Creative Director, Dorothy Cosonas and the design team studied dozens of books researching traditional Japanese motifs, fashion, costuming and arts resulting in 4 upholstery fabrics, Kabuki, Sashiko, Zen Wave and Kaya, that celebrate bold graphic forms and simple subtle beauty.
Supporting the Japanese design concept are 4 vertical products. Noren is the next generation of acoustic sheer with sound absorbing properties. Stencil is an embossed type II vinyl wallcovering while Calm is specialty wallcovering with wool content. Finally, Edo addresses the trend for a heathered natural looking material on the wall for wrapped panel application.
The products of Azuma blend together beautifully in this cohesive and inspired collection.
