Encircle is a sculptural upholstery textile with a tactile, meticulous expression. It explores the delicate irregularities of natural surfaces and is inspired by the crafts and landscapes of Grand-Bassam, Côte d’Ivoire.
Complex yet simple, Encircle unites a naturally irregular bouclé yarn and a plain-dyed background yarn. This construction gives the upholstery a meticulous look: intricate irregular circles appear to pop out of its surface. Like leaves, each one has an individual form.
Encircle’s signature characteristics also include pronounced softness and an elegant, rounded expression. It combines particularly well with Interlace, a curtain textile designed by Karin An Rijlaarsdam, as well as many woollen designs in the Kvadrat collection.
