LATEST FABRIC & FINISH INTRODUCTIONS
 
September 2014 Launch - Teknion Textiles & Finishes


Tech Couture

The Tech Couture collection by Suzanne Tick for Teknion Textiles features upholstery and vertical fabrics inspired by artisanal techniques long associated with couture fashion. The design tools of technology have made it possible to create couture looks and techniques, formerly only made by hand with acute attention to detail. Cutting, quilting, embossing and stitch work once done by hand are now seamlessly accomplished through CAD work, lasers and computerized machinery. A feeling of grandeur can now be imparted on more modest materials and objects of all scales.

Tick brings this concept to Teknion Textiles, realizing that luxury and well-being comes from textured fabrics that impart a sense of hand manipulation and artistry. In todayís digital era of slick tech materials, textiles provide warmth, comfort and a tactile experience in direct contrast to the cold, hard, glossy touch of iPhones and tablets. Likewise, while desiring creature comforts, we are also future-seekers, craving new materials that can be used with the classics to remind us that we are moving forward. The Tech Couture collection captures this dichotomy with textiles that speak to rich textures and colors, quality constructions and the spirit of craftsmanship.

The collection features nine textiles: four new upholstery fabrics; one new vertical wall fabric, and four recolored Teknion panel fabrics that share the same spirit of artisan weaving and textural interplay.

Form + Structure

The Form + Structure collection by Suzanne Tick for Teknion Textiles celebrates the parallel relationship of hard materials in architecture with soft materials in Weaving. Although the scales are different, buildings and textiles share a common framework of interconnected elements that constitute their form and structure.

Tickís weaving has always been inspired by the patterns found in buildings, whether itís from the repetition of facades, the textural qualities of surfaces, or the perforations of screens and skins. Not unlike a building taking shape during construction, the fabrics start as weave structures, which then come alive with the addition of color work, selection of materials and the designerís hand.

The collection is comprised of nine styles, five upholstery and four panel fabrics that reference the exaggerated textures, geometric patterns and linear work found in architecture.

Textile Additions - Duality Collection

The Duality collection from Teknion Textiles comes on the heels of the Surface Tension collection, which explored the combination of textures and lusters within a large range of fabrics.

Duality takes this concept further, introducing yet more textures and materials into the brandís range. Leathers, textural solids, high performance vinyls, slick lusters, plush textures, and vertical wall fabrics all make an appearance in the Duality collection.

This wide range of leathers, vinyls, and woven textiles make for many exciting juxtapositions of their own and with other fabrics from Teknion Textiles.

September 2013 Launch - Teknion Textiles


Teknion Textiles' first textile introduction, Surface Tension, is a 2013 Best of NeoCon Gold award winner. The collection uses duality, contrasting properties and opposing forces to create interest. The palettes incorporate a range of desirable warm and cool neutrals, including metallic tones inspired by earthy minerals as well as digital technology. Bright accents that offer rich hues and deep saturation are also predominant and are ideal for color blocking, creating gradation, branding and way-finding.
