Abstract Cushion

$140.00

Abstract is a pair of cushions designed and made by Tom Dixon product design group using traditional techniques from the rug and carpet industries.

Thick, woolly, harder wearing and generally more substantial than most cushions these are hand tufted by extraordinarily skilled craftsmen.

These cushions are part of the Tom Dixon limited edition Super Texture 2018.

Urban perspective sketches and Hippy Wall hangings of the seventies were the initial inspiration for the variety of textures and blocks of saturated colors that come through in Abstract.

Details of a cityscape watercolor from textile artist Josephine Ortega were blown up in scale and separated on graph paper to create a grid – a technique familiar in tapestry pattern, but supersized for this project.

The loops, tufts and the variety of pile heights accentuate the hand-crafted nature of these cushions – impossible to create by machine. Made from 100% New Zealand wool, backed with natural linen and generously filled with Danish duck feathers – outstanding materiality and a human touch.
