Oversized, isosceles triangles in smoky pastels and natural colours adorn the new series of the classic drapilux 809 fabric. The low saturation of the colours and the generous pattern convey a special lightness to the fabric. This is enhanced by the transparent composition of the base fabric. In this way, the fabric blends in well with the design language of a modern interior.
The works of the internationally renowned Bauhaus artist, Anni Albers, was the inspiration for the design. When she first began to study at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, she intended to become an artist. The “massive muddle” and “searching from all angles”, which reigned during the early Bauhaus era, as she called it, made it more difficult for her to unleash her creativity. She finally found her creative freedom within the fixed frame of a weaving loom. Her design language also developed in weaving, which was characterised by abstract and symmetrical motifs and patterns that were reduced to basic shapes. The new drapilux 809 series is one of the latest four drapilux arrivals which are dedicated to female artists of the Bauhaus era.
