Akira Minagawa Collection
The Akira Minagawa Collection for Kvadrat is characterized by sophisticated patterns, elaborate embroideries and elegant colour shades. The collection is an image of the sources of inspiration for Minagava. These are often found in nature and at the beginning of his creative work he always reflects on his hands. With the embroidery and various motifs his various designs are transferred accurately on the textiles: the individuality of every line and every single brush stroke is reflected in the seam. Thereby, not only the visual storytelling by Akira Minagawa comes to life, but it is also ensured that the collection offers a wealth of subtle details, elegant shapes and vibrant tactile surfaces.
