Simon Hasan has developed a new expression for Hallingdal 65, the oldest and most iconic range of leading textile brand, Kvadrat.
Working with one of the U.K’s last remaining roperies, Hasan developed Kvadrat’s base yarns into a braided woollen rope with a strong polyester core.
The resulting Hallingdal 65 Rope successfully creates a new expression for Hallingdal’s familiar characteristics, and potentially extends opportunities for Kvadrat both within and beyond the upholstery sector.
Hallingdal 65 Rope was developed in commission for the Kvadrat Hallingdal 65 exhibition, for which Hasan applied the rope to a monolithic steel bench, debuting during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012.
