Planum for Kvadrat | Febrik

January 2020

planum-1a_01

Planum is a knitted upholstery textile with a refined expression and a smooth, soft surface. It comes in curiosity-inspiring colours crafted by Dutch Design Studio Raw Color. Characterised by a subtle matt lustre and a natural, dry handle, the knitted textile is constructed using a simple double-knit with a predominantly woollen surface. To create the versatile colour scale for Planum, Raw Color took a collection of three-dimensional objects as a starting point. The studio explored diverse directions and shades before making a final selection of 20 tones from 350 hand- painted samples.

Raw Color: “We decided to develop the colour palette based on hand-painted swatches. This enabled us to create shades that are less expected and uncommon.” Naturally for a knitted textile, Planum features excellent stretchability, making it ideal for upholstering organic forms while minimising the number of seams. Suitable for contract and private use, the textile combines well with the more voluminous, three-dimensional textiles in the Kvadrat Febrik collection.
