élise fouin creates vibrant sunbrella canopy during stockholm furniture fair

 

stockholm furniture fair: paris-based designer élise fouin has created an undulating canopy of rainbow; a surprising setting for the sunbrella® indoor and outdoor fabrics brand. the ‘sunbrella canopy’ draws influence from a forest canopy and invites visitors to experience the array of colors created by the fabric circles.

the sunbrella brand is recognized for their fabrics being resistance to fading even after exposure to the sun and water. with this, élise fouin has merged an artistic and imaginative vision to for the textile-made installation to create the sunbrella canopy during stockholm furniture fair.

 

‘the canopy is the forest’s top layer – a point exposed to the extremes of nature, such the sun and rain, just like the brand’s fabrics,’ explains élise fouin. ‘visually, I wanted to reference the lush leafiness below the canopy and to contrast it with its smoother outer forms, like a forest seen from above. it immerses visitors in a world of sounds and senses in which the dazzling colors of the textiles, in shades ranging from earth red to subtle hues of green and blue, play a central role. we also work with the light that filters through this canopy and gives prominence to the finish of these ‘textured fabrics’.’
