Steelcut is a hardwearing upholstery textile, which is an evolution of Steelcut in an additional colour scale. It is designed by Frans Dijkmeijer and coloured by Giulio Ridolfo. The fabric features an innovative weave, which creates a three-dimensional surface resembling small pyramids or steel points. This gives Steelcut 2 a simple, precise expression, despite the complex weaving technique used in its production.

Composition 90% new wool, 10% nylon

Giulio Ridolfo

Giulio Ridolfo

Italian ‘colour master’ Giulio Ridolfo graduated with a Masters Degree in Fashion Design from Milan’s Domus Academy in 1985 and has since worked as a sought after colour advisor to many of the world’s leading interior, clothing and footwear companies.

Ridolfo draws his inspiration from diverse sources such as photography, art and fashion. He gathers images, colours, patterns and textures then combines these different elements and expressions until he creates something new. 

Frans Dijkmeijer

Frans Dijkmeijer

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.
