Luum Textiles debuts at NeoCon with Starting Point, its first integrated textiles collection, designed by Suzanne Tick -
13th June, 2016
Luum Textiles today announced the introduction of its first collection – Starting Point – at NeoCon from June 13-15 at The Mart in Chicago. Each product in the Starting Point collection descends from a common origin story: pre-digital analog processes, particularly the art of hand weaving. “Each pattern starts with a strong point of view to create an enduring textile for the interior, said Suzanne Tick, Creative Director, Luum. “The key to this collection lies in the art of hand weaving.
Whether it’s the unique weave structure developed on our studio handloom for a solution-dyed nylon upholstery or the hand-woven art project that inspired our printed polyurethane, each textile in the Starting Point collection descends from a common origin story.”
Focusing on performance luxury, Starting Point upholstery includes two large-scale fabrics for use on collaborative seating as well as two smaller-scale performance patterns. Three vertical fabrics provide a range of textures for walls and panels. Two multi-purpose fabrics feature long colorlines to coordinate with the other patterns. This allows for analogous palettes with varied shades, values and saturations for additional layering and visual texture.
The Starting Point collection includes Angulo, Point to Point, Perilune, Substance, Percept, Complement, Twining, Carreaux and Soft Ridge. All fabrics meet or exceed heavy-duty contract requirements, including three bleach-cleanable patterns, and are highly durable, with three patterns at 100,000 double rubs.
“From fiber to finish, across upholstery and wallcoverings, Luum creates products designed to work together seamlessly,” said Dave White, Vice President, Luum Textiles. “We’re always looking ahead and imagining the ways our collections will be used. It’s why we work by hand at the fiber level to understand – and ultimately influence – how our materials will perform in the built environment.”
