The Danish textile brand Kvadrat tapped Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez—of Dwell’s Young Guns class of 2013—for its annual exhibition at Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile. For his installation, Alvarez adapted his hallmark thread-wrapping machine. The automated industrial process binds together basic furniture with colored, glue-soaked string. In this iteration, he substituted brightly hued textile paint for glue, using it to saturate Kvadrat’s Divina wool thread as it wraps a curved structure.
