or Call to Order

Steel­cut 2 is a hard­wear­ing uphol­stery textile, which is an evolu­tion of Steel­cut in an addi­tional color scale. It is designed by Frans Dijk­mei­jer and colored by Giulio Ridolfo. The fabric features an inno­v­a­tive weave, which creates a three-dimen­sional surface resem­bling small pyra­mids or steel points. This gives Steel­cut 2 a simple, precise expres­sion, despite the complex weaving tech­nique used in its production.

Frans Dikmeijer

NETHERLANDS (1936 - 2011)

Frans Dikmeijer studied at the Academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven, before he began working at Kendix textiles. From there he became Head of Design at Artex before moving onto de Ploeg textiles. By 1992 his relationship with Kvadrat had begun and he went on to create a large number of upholstery textiles for them.

Dikmeiger is often referred to as one of Europe’s leading weavers. His work perceives materials, colors and textures as an organic whole. It is fundamental for him that there is harmony within the elements. A common characteristic of Frans Dikmeijer’s woven textiles is that they radiate a logical simplicity despite the technical complexity of them.
