Repeat is the industrial continuation of a theme that started with B-Set (1997): the creation of individuality within serial production. Repeat is an upholstery textile with an unusually long cycle of repetition, introducing random order and the opportunity to create one-offs within a family of furniture items. The pattern refers to silk ties in the archives of the Swiss weaving mill where the fabric is produced. The design marks the start of an intense collaboration with the American textile manufacturer, Maharam.
