Four new fabrics in Brentano's spring Studio Collection are inspired by the work of diverse fine artists. Autumn takes its cues from watercolorist Raoul Dufy. Construct interprets the wire sculptures of Naum Gabo, a favorite of Brentano Design Director Iris Wang. Holbein's squiggles "mimic the intricacy of the cuffs and collars in Hans Holbein the Younger's Renaissance portrait paintings." Finally, Precision portrays the strict, straightforward style of the 1920's Precisionism Movement.
Contract Textiles Draw from Fine Art
Bleach cleanable and extremely durable, Autumn, one of Brentano's eco-friendly fabrics, has post-consumer recycled yarns and a GreenShield finish. Its eight colorways include bold colors like Tropical Flowers (orange) and Les Fauves (purple). Construct, also a bleach-cleanable, eco-friendly performance fabric with recycled content, features a wavy grid pattern resembling mesh wire. The intricate geometry looks great in both neutrals like Space (black and cream) and bright hues like Revolution (hot pink).
Holbein, which offers a loose interpretation of Renaissance frippery, weaves together solution-dyed nylon warp and high energy-dyed post-consumer recycled polyester weft to create an eco-friendly, bleach cleanable fabric with a soothing kinetic pattern ideal for healthcare and hospitality interiors. Two-toned Precision takes its cues from the 1920's art movement. The fabric's skinny, recessed stripe comes in contemporary colorways, including edgy Fountain Pen (gray and black) and dramatic Sunbeam (yellow and tan).
