ARCHITEXTURE I Richard Frinier for Sunbrella

Platinum Award
2019
The Architexture Collection of performance textiles from the Richard Frinier Collection for Sunbrella echoes architectural design elements found in surface and facade design. Inspired by the architectural movement taking place that involves the surfacing and resurfacing of buildings around the world designer Richard Frinier was captivated by the many unique layers and materials, such as metals, glass, concrete and other new and repurposed materials, used to create these remarkable architectural facades. The outcome is compelling for its overall design, construct and spatial effects and the impact and influence these buildings have on society.

Architextural impressions continued to manifest throughout Frinier's design process and the result is a versatile range of textiles with distinctive constructions, textures, patterns and colors. Fabrics in the Architexture Collection enhance and complement both interior and exterior spaces.

A synthesis of architectural forms and soaring skyscrapers, the pattern NYC translates the vertical facades of the iconic metropolis into a tapestry of urban living. LA is an abstract interpretation inspired by a modern building facade in Los Angeles. Kowloon, a densely-populated area of Hong Kong, was the inspiration behind HiRise, which appears as a textured stripe of tiny windows.

Focusing further on the design elements of architecture, Facade showcases an offset window pattern infused with reflective fiber for a shimmer that creates a sense of energy. Frinier based geometric pattern Hexspace on an architectural window screen he saw on a French metropolitan high-rise building. And, the adaptation of a hex-shaped facade as seen on a Shenzhen skyscraper translated into Linx, a dimensional motif.

Reimagined from the window wall of a New York skyscraper, Architex appears as a woven grid pattern. Matrix is a honeycomb pattern originating from slate tiles that transforms into a three-dimensional fabric construction. To complete the collection, Struxture is a versatile construction that references the appearance of exterior surface materials and forms as the base textile for all Architexture Collection patterns.

Colorways in the Collection dfrawn upon the building materials, hardscapes, environments and skyscapes surrounding these structural facades. The palette offers a wide range of colors including Vapor, Daylight, Sand System, Stone, Steel, Brick, Green, Glass, Skyline and Midnight.

The Architexture Collection is available to the trade through Pindler and to manufacturers through Sunbrella directly.
