Architecturally inspired textile designs from Fokus Fabrik
Fokus Fabrik are a Finnish design group who draw some of their inspiration from the urban landscape. The results are some striking fabric designs that reference architectural delights such as the tower blocks and cranes shown on the Fussio and Katve cushions shown here. The hard graphic lines of the buildings and machinery contrast with the soft fabrics used to make the cushions.
Though their imagery is industrial, Fokus Fabrik's outlook is ecological and they think carefully about the processes used to manufacture their textiles – these cushions being made from an organic cotton and hemp mix. Each cushion costs 64 euros, but both designs are also available as the fabric alone.
