We believe that design is most successful when the creative process is paired with a clear performance intent. Whether itâ€™s a problem to be solved or an objective to be met, design is a forward-looking pursuit.
Weâ€™re always looking ahead and imagining the ways our collections will be used. Itâ€™s why we work by hand at the fiber level to understand â€“ and ultimately influence â€“ how our materials will perform in the built environment.
Throughout the design process, we focus on creating products that work together in a holistic way. This comprehensive approach allows us to provide architects and designers with a complete solution capable of wrapping every contour of the interior and unlocking the possibilities found within.
We work by hand at the fiber level to understandâ€”and ultimately influence â€”how our materials will perform in the built environment. Through observation and experimentation, we are constantly learning and applying that knowledge to our craft. Itâ€™s what enriches our creative process and grounds the way we approach the use of fiber, weave structure, color and Patternâ€”each important pillars of textile design.
Fiber has to do far more than ever before. It needs to be beautiful and have an aesthetic quality, tactile hand and visual interest. Spaces are now more interchangeable and fabrics need to be multi-purpose.
Weave structures provide a technical framework for fibers. We look to architecture, not only as a metaphor, but also as a foundational reference that connects the interior space to exterior structures.
Color is emotional, cultural, physical, aesthetic and utilitarian. It reinforces brand identity as well as delineates space. As the nature of work has changed, our approach to building color palettes has adapted to build a broader sense of community.
As we create new patterns, we explore how the graphic qualities of a fabric alter the way a space is perceived and experienced. Patterns can captivate as well as forgive. They can make a statement or hide imperfections.
Focus In Collection
The Focus In collection designed by Suzanne Tick for Luum addresses the importance of adaptable products for mobile and flexible environments. The aesthetic and performance qualities of products specified within these fluid spaces require an agility that supports a range of activities.
