Giulio Ridolfo: “Colline is a masterpiece by Frans. I aimed to create a range from light to dark and added natural and earthy blended tones to it. As the colors came out of the loom, I immediately felt comfortable and happy with them. Just like climbing a hill on a spring day. »

Frans Dijkmeijer was born in the Netherlands in 1936. He studied at the Academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven, a school designed similarly to the Bauhaus, before working at Kendix textiles, becoming head of design at Artex in 1966 then move on to Ploeg textiles. In 1992 his relationship with Kvadrat was initiated and continued to create a large number of upholstery textiles there.
Dijkmeijer is recognized as one of the leading European weavers. In his work, he perceives materials, colors and textures as an organic whole. The harmony of the elements is fundamental in his creations. The range of possible materials and weaving techniques were the greatest source of inspiration for Dijkmeijer. Reflecting this, his workshop was a kind of laboratory and his strict processes became a science. The characteristic of his woven textiles is that, despite their technical complexity, they exude a logical simplicity.
