Steelcut Trio is a hardwearing woolen upholstery textile with the same construction as Steelcut. Originally designed by Frans Dijkmeijer, it comes in updated color-ways crafted by Giulio Ridolfo. The three-dimensional surface of Steelcut Trio 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 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.
