The Cartouche Collection by Robert A.M. Stern for CF Stinson
Architects Robert A.M. Stern Design have created a new collection of seven fabric designs for high performance textile manufacturer CF Stinson. Naturally, when designing the collection, Robert A.M. Stern were inspired by the patterns found in architecture.
The Cartouche Collection is inspired by architectural details found in traditional American buildings, from shingle-style houses to the New York Public Library.
Each design references a different element in the finishes and trims of great buildings, from 19th century-inspired lathe turned ornamentation to a scrolling acanthus-leaf motif .
Robert A.M. Stern commented, “Architecture is a visual language. As architects, our approach to textile design follows the basic principles of architecture-proportion, symmetry, scale, rhythm, balance-allowing the fabric to become an element of the building it inhabits, enhancing and interacting with its surroundings rather than competing with them.”
The fabrics are suitable for many high-end applications including corporate offices, lobbies, and waiting areas; academic and institutional buildings; assisted living and medical facilities; and hospitality, including hotels and restaurants.
The patterns called Spindle, Acanthus, Links Serpentino, Insignio and Balustrade feature subtle texture and a refined color palette that adds sophistication to the patterns.
