Tronic Throw

4.605,00 kr

Variant

Kvadrat tæppe

The throws in the collection extend Raf Simons aesthetic into the finer details of an interior scheme. Versatile and distinctively soft to the touch, they range from classic, single-colour designs to subtle gradations. The throws allow for mixing and matching and complement the textiles and cushions in the Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection.

This chic throw combines a dynamic use of colour with the silky elegance of cashmere and the strength of wool. Two tones of yarn are woven together creating a gradated marriage of colours – each colour dominates one end of the throw and subtly melds into the other as it progresses along its length. The use of white and black warp threads in the weave adds to the flickering colour effect. 

Inspired by the aesthetic of the dip-dye technique used in a number of garments in Raf Simons collections, the transformation of colour in Tronic is achieved through the carefully calibrated use of different coloured yarns, rather than dye being applied to the finished piece. Colour progressions range from the soft evolution of creamy white into a rich oatmeal, the drama of deep charcoal turning into soft grey, and warmer transformation through tones of red, deep green and royal blue. Tronic has black or white twisted fringes at both ends, with raw frayed edging on the sides.

“I was fascinated by how the colouration and weaving processes in fashion textiles don’t have the same limitations as those of furnishing textiles. Working with Kvadrat, we’ve been translating the subtle colouration and texture that you’d find perhaps in a tweed or bouclé into textiles suitable for use in furniture. Because of the dense weave that is needed for furniture, the colouration becomes even more interesting, with almost a painterly impact.”

Design Raf Simons

Born in Belgium in 1968, Simons studied industrial design in Genk. Inspired by the work of designers such as Martin Margiela, he moved to Antwerp, where the head of the Fashion Department at the city’s Royal Academy encouraged him to start his own label without further study. 

Launched in 1995, Raf Simons menswear—informed both by classic tailoring and youth culture—had a huge impact on the style of the decade.

In 2005 Simons became artistic director of the Jil Sander label, which under his tenure became known for its vital, sophisticated modernism.

In 2012 he was named creative director of Dior Women, a position that he held until late in 2015. During his time as Chief Creative Officer of American fashion label Calvin Klein from 2016 to 2018, he has been awarded Designer of the Year 2017 for both his Menswear and Womenswear collections and for his Womenswear collection in 2018.

In April 2020, Raf Simons joined the Prada brand as Co-Creative Director, working in partnership with Miuccia Prada.

A passionate collector of contemporary art and modern design, Simons’ aesthetic is often informed by his admiration for art and he regularly engages in interdisciplinary collaborations.
