or Call to Order

Steel­cut Trio 3 from Kvadrat is a hard­wear­ing woolen uphol­stery textile with the same construc­tion as Steel­cut. Orig­i­nally designed by Frans Dijk­mei­jer, it comes in updated color­ways crafted by Giulio Ridolfo. The three-dimen­sional surface of Steel­cut Trio 3 resem­bles small pyra­mids or steel points. Despite the complex­ity of the textile’s inno­v­a­tive weave, it has a simple, precise expres­sion. Steel­cut Trio is yarn-dyed and made from 3 differ­ently colored yarns.


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.

Giulio Ridolfo


Italian ‘color master’ Giulio Ridolfo is a highly sought-after color advisor to many of the world’s leading interior, clothing and footwear companies. In 1985 he graduated with a Masters Degree in Fashion Design from Milan’s Domus Academy and since has pivoted, working

with renowned furniture companies developing advanced color systems for textile applications. Ridolfo draws his inspiration from diverse sources such as photography, art, and fashion. He gathers images, colors, patterns, and textures, then combines these different elements and expressions until he creates something new.
