The latest collection from Knoll Textiles expands on the brand’s vertical application offerings with four new performance wallcoverings and one open-weave drapery, all of which combine organic textures with high-tech construction methods.
A small-scale version of a classic menswear herringbone pattern, Gist uses marled (or mottled) yarn that expresses a subtly variegated appearance. Made from 53 per cent post-consumer recycled polyester and 48 per cent polyester, the nuanced textile is suitable as direct-glue wallcovering or wrapped panel applications in high-traffic settings. Available in 8 colourways.
Combining woven multicolour yarns with thermoplastic olefin, Gossip is a durable alterantive to grasscloth. The PVC-free hybrid wallcovering (made from a blend of 90 per cent polyester and 10 per cent Tekloom Thermoplastic Olefin) is bleach-cleanable and can be also be used for wrapped panels. Available in 8 colourways.
Contact features a highly detailed and layered cellular-like motif that was achieved through rotogravure printing at varying scales, which resulted in a surface with visual depth and movement. The wallcovering is made from 88 per cent non-phthalate vinyl and 12 per cent post-industrial recycled non-phthalate vinyl. Available in 11 colourways.
With a lightly embossed surface that has been digitally printed with a crosshatch pattern, Headline features a compelling play of light and shadow. The wallcovering is made from a blend of 63 per cent thermoplastic Olefin and 37 per cent post-industrial recycled thermoplastic Olefin with a polyester/cotton backing. Available in 8 colourways.
The single drapery in the collection, Altitude is a sheer double-width panel with an open weave, and lends both structure and softness to interior spaces. The transparent leno weave is comprised of 92 per cent post-industrial recycled polyester (Trevira) and has a slightly striated surface. Available in 6 colourways.
