Introduction The essence of hospitality is creating an atmosphere where people feel comfortable and relaxed. Quality textiles are instrumental in helping to achieve this, as they play a fundamental role in how we perceive and use interior spaces. Textiles allow you to precisely define the mood you want: curtains can transform a room by influencing light and acoustics, whilst when we interact with furniture, upholstery completes the experience. At Kvadrat, we have been developing premium quality, contemporary curtains and upholstery for over 40 years. Since 2007 we have delivered over 1000 hospitality projects, putting us in a unique position to understand and meet the specific needs of the sector. Our comprehensive collection reflects our commitment to colour, simplicity and innovation. We use the newest production techniques to optimise the quality, performance and longevity of our products, whilst minimising their environmental impact. As a result, many of our textiles are particularly well suited to hospitality. Today hospitality is an increasingly globalised industry, and we offer our clients the benefits of a worldwide network, staffed by a team of highly trained sales representatives who offer expertise and insightful advice, from initial consultation through to post-sales support. Inside this brochure we would like to take you through our hospitality collection, where you will discover an extensive range of textiles that are applicable to a wide variety of different venues.
Kvadrat collection Consisting of over 150 designs and more than 2200 colours, the versatile Kvadrat collection is characterised by originality, technological innovation, high-quality materials and aesthetic excellence. Produced to the highest standards, our curtains, upholstery and acoustic panels are used in leading hotels, restaurants and conference centres all over the world. All the textiles in the collection adhere to our strict quality and environmental guidelines, whilst complying with the relevant legislation, regulations and standards. Our extensive network and specialisation ensure that they are the highest possible quality and have an extremely long life span. Our curtains and upholstery offer the security of a 10-year warranty, which provides for the replacement of the textiles, in case of accepted claims. This covers lightfastness, abrasion, shrinkage and flammability, according to the test results specified in our technical specifications.
Comprehensive service We offer the hospitality industry an extensive suite of end-to-end services. Our textiles meet a wide variety of requirements, including curtains, and upholstery for chairs and headboards. For larger orders, we offer the possibility of ‘specials’, which are customised orders of unique colours, cuts and weaves. We work very closely with our customers from the outset. Thorough planning ensures that we deliver high-quality, innovative designs that match the budget, well before tendering is due to begin. As a design leader, we ensure our sales representatives have an in-depth understanding of our products and how they fit with modern trends in architecture and design. This, combined with local and industry specific knowledge, puts them in a unique position to offer insightful ideas and advice. Importantly for an industry that often operates across borders, we offer the confidence that comes from working with a global network – we have 17 showrooms and a presence in 20 countries across the world. We also enjoy long-term relationships with many leading premium furniture manufacturers. This puts us in an excellent position to promptly meet our clients’ precise requirements.
During the selection process for our hotels, Kvadrat provided excellent advice on a number of criteria, including wear, pilling resistance, ease of maintenance, lightfastness and conformity with fire standards. Their team offers an impressive combination of comprehensive service, quality textiles and excellent value for money. Accor Hotel Group
Commitment to the environment At Kvadrat respect for the natural and social environment is a guiding principle. It is reflected in all our products, processes and supplier relationships. We seek the latest technologies to minimise the environmental impact of our products, whilst maximising their aesthetic quality, functional performance and durability. We regularly review our business systems and partner relationships to ensure the highest possible ethical and environmental standards. In addition, we work closely with suppliers to ensure potentially damaging substances are never used in our products and processes. Many of our textiles have been recognised for their environmental credentials with EU ‘Flower’ Ecolabels. The EU ‘Flower’ Ecolabel is unique in the fact that it is the only Ecolabel awarded to products that meet strict environmental and performance criteria. These take into account the entire production process, types of fibre used, and the finished textile’s fitness for use. We never use: AZO dyes, which can split off into carcinogenic acrylamides Dyes containing heavy metals Bromide flame-retardants Chemicals that require chlorine for production PVC in base production
The reduction of resources is indispensable in architecture; and all technologies which are able to avoid an egocentric modernism are important. I call this â€˜ecotectureâ€™: mixing ecology, economy and architecture in a responsible manner in order to optimise the quality and minimise the environmental impact. Matteo Thun Architect
Recommended hospitality fabrics Trevira CS 90% of Kvadrat curtain fabrics are made of Trevira CS, a type of polyester made from top quality yarn, which is hardwearing and absorbs very little water. As a result, it is easy and economical to maintain. Importantly, it is also 100% flame retardant, hypoallergenic and certified according to Oeko-Tex 100 Standard. Wool We choose the best quality wool, sourcing from New Zealand, Australia and Norway. Wool is natural, long-lasting and comes from a renewable source. It offers a host of functional benefits that make it ideal for hospitality, including excellent breathability and inherent flame resistance.
Waterborn Microfibre is an exceptionally thin fibre, typically made from man-made materials like nylon, polyester and polyurethane. It is used to construct light, soft and hardwearing fabrics, which offer an alternative with a lower environmental impact to suede and leather. Kvadratâ€™s Waterborn sets new standards for microfibre textiles in terms of environmental impact and performance. Unlike other microfibre fabrics, it is manufactured using only warm water and no solvents. This innovative production process, which recycles water in a closed system, delivers water savings of up to 70% and generates 35% less CO 2 compared to conventional microfibre production. As Waterborn is constructed from very thin fibres, it is softer and more comfortable than other microfibre textiles. It also moulds to furniture more smoothly, maintains its colour and surface more effectively when embossed, and can be washed at 60Â°.
We love Kvadrat because they have their finger on the pulse of innovative fabrics and design, but they never forget quality texture and a fabulous colour palette. We like to feel we are one step ahead with Kvadrat. Kit Kemp Chief Designer and Design Director Firmdale Hotels
Soft Cells – Aesthetically pure sound conditioning Kvadrat Soft Cells are patented panels, which control sound absorption. Suitable as building components or for post-fitting, they allow you to create an aesthetic environment with excellent acoustic properties. Acoustics play a major role in creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. For this reason, Soft Cells are particularly relevant to the hospitality industry. They promote a sense of well-being wherever they are used, and increase productivity in business areas, such as conference rooms and other high-traffic areas. Soft Cells are now available in three durable versions, all of which enable architects and designers to optimise the environmental quality of their projects: Soft Cells, Soft Cells Broadline, which offers Class-A sound absorption, and new Soft Cells Thermal. This latest version of Soft Cells features innovative ‘Thermal Transparency’ technology, and can be used in combination with thermally activated building systems ( TABS), while still ensuring strong acoustic performance. Importantly, thanks to their sustainability-focused design, Soft Cells support accreditation under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building certification system when used as a building component. Built to last, they can be reupholstered and reused as required. Soft Cells are supported with 360° service, which includes acoustic advice, if required. They also offer the security of a 10-year warranty, if installed by our certified White Glove Installers. softcells.com
