The Canvas textiles possess the enchanting characteristic of providing a variety of different impressions, depending on the distance and angle from which they are viewed. This, along with Giulio Ridolfo’s references to haute couture in his conception of Canvas, has inspired us to design a furniture piece featuring movement and a constantly changing appearance.
The Catwalk Bench takes an uncommon approach to upholstery, wherein the textile is displayed as a revolving loop, somewhat reminiscent of a conveyor belt – rather than resting static. Bit by bit, all the various colourways of Canvas 2 appear and move across the surface of the bench like a vivid fashion show, highlighting the tonal relationships and harmonies within the collection.
