#IDneocon: David Adjaye Teams with Dorothy Cosonas at Knoll Textiles

Knoll Textiles Adjaye Collection Neocon 02

<<Back to NeoCon Homepage

David Adjaye collaborates with Knoll Textiles creative director Dorothy Cosonas on the Adjaye Collection, a meeting of African aesthetics with the language of modern fabrics. Digitally printed to mimic building textures and named after cherished places in Adjaye’s native Africa, such as Djenne and Lagos, the six upholstery and two window fabrics are woven of cotton, nylon, polyester, rayon, viscose, and linen. There’s also a wall-covering pattern constructed of PVC and cotton. The collection’s launch coincides with an exhibit of African textiles and objects that Adjaye curated for the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York.
