Last year Danish brand Really, together with Kvadrat, enlisted Max Lamb to test the boundaries of breakthrough sustainable material Solid Textile Board by creating a series of benches. Hot off the success of this, Kvadrat and Really (with the help of curators Jane Withers and Njusja de Gier) have now placed the material in the hands of designers including Raw-Edges (project pictured), Jonathan Olivares, Benjamin Hubert and Claesson Koivisto Rune to challenge the textile further and make chairs and shelving that will go on view in Brera.
