Ultrafabrics had a notably unique exhibit at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week – rolling into town in style in a super cool Airstream, housed within was the Ultrafabrics Takumi Gallery, highlighting their special American/Japanese relationship and showcasing their latest collections of high performance, tactile upholstery fabrics.
Merging six decades of passion and experience with unique technology and an artisan process from Japan, Ultrafabrics creates the most enhanced fabrics on the market and services a diverse range of markets including Accessories, Automotive Aviation, Corporate, Dental, Government Healthcare, Higher Education, Hospitality Marine, Outdoor, Residential, Restaurant and RV.
New collections include the Ultratech range; a ground breaking fabric that combines state of the art performance with a sensory experience unmatched by any material before it. Ultratech Cove, Dwell, Eco Tech and Helix unites artisanship and technology creating a new fabric beyond traditional polyurethane varieties.
Ultratech Cove brings to life a beautifully micro-beaded texture highlighted by an impressively bold palette. Uniting meticulous artisanship and ground-breaking technology in ingenious symbiosis, Cove delivers a uniquely refined matte finish and richly saturated colours beyond traditional polyurethane varieties. The futuristic tactile appeal and visually pleasing aesthetic will deliver fresh styling to any setting.
Ultratech Dwell is a fine example of form, function and innovation combining to go beyond expectations. State-of-the-art texture and performance excite the senses, uniting to make a distinctive statement you must feel to believe. Surprisingly durable and easy to maintain , Dwell’s debossed geometric pattern is available in a fresh, balanced palette, bringing sensorial enhancement to any setting.
Ultratech, Eco Tech makes a striking statement. Featuring a unique matte finish unlike any other polyurethane, Eco Tech’s innovative and exotic shagreen texture was created utilizing proprietary, design-centric Ultrafabrics engineering. A sophisticated colour palette adds to the allure and results in a collection of future-focused, sensorial fabrics.
Ultratech Helix introduces the next generation of intelligent performance fabrics with bar-raising sensorial sophistication. Helix’s distinctly dimensional geometric texture highlights a new type of surface experience you must feel to believe, creating one-of-a kind depth and texture as a result of proprietary craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. A colour story ranging from ethereal to playful allows for wide ranging design possibilities.
The Takumi Gallery was stationed in St Johns Square and in keeping with the American and Japanese theme served hotdogs and Japanese beer to an appreciative crowd of architects and designers throughout Clerkenwell Design Week.
