The Wool Parade by Kvadrat Maharam
The playful installation by Design Studio Doshi Levien opened at the Sydney office of Kvadrat Maharam to the delight of the architecture and design community.
This unique showcase, which encompasses a series of sculptural upholstered objects, takes inspiration from the avant-garde parties and architectural theatre costumes of the early Bauhaus period.
The five pieces, which are peculiarly beautiful and ambiguous in form, each exude an individual character which, when viewed together, are reminiscent of marionettes in a parade. All are upholstered in an irreverent and bold combination of woollen fabrics, associated with costumes and the theatre. These Kvadrat fabrics include: Hallingdal 65, Divina MD, Divina 3, Steelcut Trio 2, Remix 2 and Willow.
