Kvadrat Sprinkles Fabric
Designed by Dutch designer Bertjan Pot, Sprinkles is a joyful knitted upholstery textile. Characterized by volume and comfort, a middle layer of polyester filling has been inserted into its construction between the two knit layers.
A close-up inspection of the knitted surface reveals a kaleidoscopic gathering of tiny colored dots. The dots alter in color depending on the perspective of the spectator. Looked upon from a distance, the sparkling colors are subdued, creating a subtle mélange.
