NETWORK I Richard Frinier for Sunbrella
“The world is moving at a rapid pace, and we’re all online becoming increasingly obsessed with a sense of immediacy and instant gratification. I wanted to press pause and take a screenshot of the digital landscape by translating popular internet slang into original, relevant and memorable textile creations that would be immediately universal and understandable by design,” Richard Frinier says. “I especially like the range of color contrasts we were able to achieve from more subtle tone-on-tone hues to experimenting with a wavelength of frequencies and fusion of color combinations that adapt easily across countless upholstery applications for both interior and exterior spaces.”
Upholstery fabrics from Sunbrella® are continually advancing in design sophistication and comfort, resulting in applications for both interiors and exteriors. Sunbrella fabrics have achieved GREENGUARD GOLD certification as contributing to healthy indoor air quality by being a very low emitting interior product.
Available upon request.
