LUUM was created as “The Architect’s Textile” line. Starting from scratch at the fiber level, we use tectonic building structures to guide us in creating the weave drafts and structures. Our textures are rooted in the concept, bringing building facades inside to interior materials. LUUM patterns are inherently structural, never stylized or applied. They allow furniture to be structures of architecture, creating a continuum throughout the building from exterior to interior. 95% Of all fibers and products used in the LUUM collection are environmentally friendly and RED Label free.

The Phenomenology collection by Suzanne Tick presents five new fabrics that interact dynamically with light through exploration of color, materiality and pattern designed to illusory effect. Each fabric performs as a unique design tool to enhance interior spaces and integrate to create intriguing and elegant experiences.
Sophistication isn’t fixed—it’s in flux. Ephemera features a highly durable epingle pile that reveals or obscures the subtle underlying ikat-inspired jacquard depending on the angle at which it is seen. Age-old ikat techniques are reinterpreted through complex construction, each of the reflective and rich colors imparts a refined air to any space. In addition to its optical effect, this fabric was designed for bleach cleanability and washability, making it appropriate for merging hospitality and workplace applications.
The Tactility Collection by Suzanne Tick explores the diversity and expressive nature of a surface through fiber, structure, color, pattern, and dimension. The collection offers new classics, modernized through pattern and color. Patterns and constructions are inspired by time-honored textile techniques, such as quilting, moire effects, and spinning. The palettes reflect a more nuanced and experimental approach to color by offering a broader selection of softer shades and tech-inspired brights.
Based on the passage of light through geometric facades, Equilux’s large-scale pattern is created through the traditional method of moire. By layering grid patterns, dynamic movement is created and moire becomes modern. The subtle transition between matte wool and lustrous rayon gives equal significance to natural and synthetic fibers. Wool content feeds an emotional and sensorial desire for connection to the natural world, while the integration of synthetic fibers reflects our relationship to the built environment.
Dimension is the key to warming up an environment. Arc Angle nods to tradition by applying quilting through a contemporary lens. Using performance materials and industrial machinery, Arc Angle softens space with a technical objective.Multi-purpose, multi-directional and customizable, Arc Angle succeeds Navigate as an evolution in material hybridization. The grid is softened and deconstructed with curvilinear stitching, that fades and intensifies. Nylon stitching merges a Heather Tech base cloth with non-woven polyester. The result is a highly tactile, dimensional product.
Interstice highlights the intricate relationship between color and structure. This multi-color texture is created through a precise approach to color developed at the yarn level. The eye perceives distinct colors in the warp and weft resulting in visual texture. Through the use of fine boucles in high performance fibers, the interaction of color and weave creates a refined visual tactility. Technical brights combine with muted colors and neutrals to create complex and often unexpected colors for a versatile palette.
A bright line of thought led us to Navigate. Echoing architectural structures and grids, the embroidered pattern is a marriage of hand and machine processes. A fine, stitched line subtly fades in and out across a variegated ground capturing the spirit of a fluid and active environment. Navigate addresses the need for sound-absorbing materials by utilizing as its base cloth, Heather Felt, a 100 percent felted wool.
Digi Tweed is a hyper-textural multi-purpose product that is a direct coordinate to Heather Tech. The irregular texture and expansive palette speaks to the need for interior spaces to reflect the natural world. The exaggerated texture and tonal coloration offers designers an opportunity to explore visual dualities through the use of contrasting surfaces. Digi Tweed’s palette draws inspiration from honest and natural materials.
As the distinction between our work, home and social activities continues to dissolve, Knurl is a textural upholstery fabric that comfortably lives in a contract or residential setting. The straightforward weave structure allows thick, knubby rows of polyester yarns to shine. The exaggerated texture provides opportunities to create visual interest through texture and color. The palette offers saturated chartreuse and teal, as well as fiery reds and a range of sophisticated neutrals.
