Steelcut Trio is a hardwearing upholstery textile, which has the same construction as Steelcut 2. Designed by
Frans Dijkmeijer and coloured by Giulio Ridolfo, it is now available in a wider choice of colours.
Like Steelcut 2, Steelcut Trio features an innovative weave, which gives the fabric a three-dimensional surface
resembling small pyramids or steel points and, despite the complexity of the weave, a simple and precise expression. The difference between Steelcut Trio and Steelcut 2 lies in the way they are coloured. Unlike Steelcut 2, Steelcut Trio is yarn-dyed and made from 3 differently coloured yarns, often with very bright tones on the warp and lighter tones on the weft. This combination not only accentuates the three dimensional character of the weave, it also adds life to the fabric: though it looks unicoloured from a distance, different shades are revealed as the viewer gets nearer.
The colour scale of Steelcut Trio consists of 49 colours, 24 of which were added in 2011. Giulio Ridolfo designed
these shades by exploring the complex visual effects created by working with three different coloured yarns.
Tricoloured Steelcut Trio combines well with unicoloured Steelcut 2. For example, upholstering a chair with Steelcut 2 on the seat and Steelcut Trio on back creates a particularly bold and contemporary look.
Acclaimed Dutch designer Frans Dijkmeijer is considered one of Europe’s foremost designers of woven textiles.
He is famed for his ability to create textiles that exude simplicity and elegance despite the high technical
complexity of their weave.
Giulio Ridolfo has many years experience as a textile advisor to the clothing, footwear and interiors industries.
His working method has been compared to a patchwork quilt, where he gathers and juxtaposes small fragments of real life in the form of images, colours, patterns and textures. He strives to retain the ‘colour vibes’ by adapting them into usable colour palettes without losing their original vibrant characteristics.
