The Akira Minagawa collection for Kvadrat is characterised by refined patterns, detailed embroidery and sophisticated nuances. It consists of three upholstery textiles and a curtain.
As the collection reflects, Akira Minagawa often gets his inspiration by observing nature, life and society, and always starts his creative process by hand. He depicts scenes from nature through motifs that are reflected in textiles using a range of different techniques, such as embroidery, weaving and printing. Every textile in the collection offers a wealth of delicate details, elegant shapes and tactile surfaces.
Akira Minagawa is a clothing and textile designer perhaps best known for his minä perhonen label. Born in Japan, Akira Minagawa combines influences from Scandinavia and his cultural roots in his timeless designs that go beyond the limits of fashion.
