Alfredo Häberli Knit Collection 2014

DIS-PLAY
Please join us for the launch of a special installation by Alfredo Häberli to celebrate his first collection of knitted textiles for Kvadrat.

“I am a big admirer of anonymous objects. Objects just done by somebody for the reason of function, precise need or just joy or passion. My studio is full of it, the drawers, the pin wall, the shelves. In between books and models. All these create and stimulate, together with art or fashion pictures, my world of colours. I have a book, in which I do collages on colours, compositions, abstract images. With no reason or pretending. When I work on a fabric collection, on the colours range of it, or colours for an interior, I take these surfaces, collages, objects and use them to find harmony or contrast in a range. It is a feeling, a mood.
The idea behind the installation showing the four knits collection during the Design Festival London at the Kvadrat showroom, was to DIS-PLAY this moment of the process. What is fun are the different sizes on the wall and in the vitrines. The models are big in comparison to the fabrics and the real furniture small. I PLAY with different sizes of the mood boards. A small booklet shows and plays with this thematic as well.”
