• Boucle exclusives

The name boucle originates from the French word meaning “curled”  and refers to a yarn, made from a series of looped fiber. It was first introduced in the late 1940’s, after American architect and furniture designer Florence Knoll requested

“A chair that was like a basket full of pillows—something I could really curl up in.”

From this brief, industriel designer and architect Eero Saarinen created the Womb Chair, where he interpreted her description down to the upholstery fiber which was a nubby textile from yarn of curled fibers, hence the very first boucle upholstery.
For our Font collection, we made a curated selection of boucle exclusives. One is Kvadrat Zero, a textile where the influence of Parisian couture clothing can be seen in the elegant and irregular bouclé. We chose the contrasting colours blue and brown.

Another boucle from our selection is Elle. During the subsequent dying the yarns take the colour differently, creating captivating shifts within the same tones. This effect and a slight sheen from the acrylic blend bring life to the voluminous textured bouclé surface while creating a perfect twist to the classic design of the Font collection.
