Utrecht armchair textile by Bertjan Pot for Cassina

April 20th, 2016 by retail design blog

Dutch designer Bertjan Pot has created a colourful textile to upholster Cassina’s Utrecht armchair, designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1935. The Utrecht armchair has been exclusively produced by Italian brand Cassina since 1988, and has become one of the brand’s most iconic products.

Each of the three versions of Pot’s BoxBlocks fabric will cover 90 limited-edition chairs. The colourful geometric-patterned material is made using innovative weaving technology. Using a computer-controlled Jacquard weaving machine, eight coloured threads are mixed two at a time to create 19 different colours on a template outlining the shape of the armchair.

The result is a unique geometric pattern in which the combination of triangles is never repeated. When designing the pattern, Pot was inspired by the shape of the chair itself, which he described as “block-sculptural”.
