Rennes & Chainette

Two curtains, Rennes and Chainette, have been constructed from a mechanised form of embroidery in which two diverging material forms play with light and shadow. Rennes has distinct wide stripes that intersect, creating bold, colourful forms; Chainette is more transparent, with delicate indications of colour softly reacting to light. Designed for Kvadrat, both curtains are reminiscent of handcrafted embroideries combined with Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s precise and engineered pattern technique.
