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. 75% of products contain recycled or renewable fibers.

The Future Tense collection designed by Suzanne Tick highlights our progressive approach to textile design and an emphasis on super scale and the duality of materials. Non-traditional processes are applied to honest materials, providing new context. Each fabric requires a second look, encouraging interaction with the environment and promoting curiosity. Through questioning the tangible, we become more engaged with our surroundings. Nodding to past eras characterized by large graphic applications and the elevation of everyday materials, the Future Tense collection harnesses the power of textiles to simultaneously define and shift our spatial perspective. The five new fabrics are grounded in industrial design, celebrating advances in conscious manufacturing and sustainability. The expressive patterns and palettes are both bold and complex, reflecting the balance between harmony and discord.
Schema’s fragmented graphic pattern honors generations of restless designers; an awakening of brilliant color and disciplined lines in an attempt to dissolve space. Nodding to recurring visual cues, super graphic patterning shifts one’s notion of scale and context while bringing vitality to an interior. By juxtaposing graphic geometries with pure hues, curvilinear forms are reintroduced in spaces both built and imagined. Digital dream spaces signify our vision of utopia, while the built environment increasingly breaks from norms and requires deeper engagement. Schema’s textural materiality is impactful and grounding, while imaginative and vivid colors speak to possibilities of the cerebral.
The Woven Logic Collection by Suzanne Tick highlights anomalies in automated structures and celebrates weaving from simple, plain and basket weaves along with more complex constructions. The five new fabrics feature these hidden complexities within inherently durable material constructions. Each fabric represents an exploration in fiber development with sophisticated color palettes.
Highlighting the innovation that can be achieved through manufacturing partnerships, Elastic Wool repurposes existing manufacturing technology in response to current needs in the marketplace to create an entirely new material. Today’s curvilinear furniture presents new challenges for textile application. In response, elastomeric fiber is introduced to an intimate blend of wool and nylon and woven in conjunction with cationic polyester for a highly upholsterable and durable textile. The plain weave construction, often considered the most rigid structure, takes on an element of playfulness and spontaneity without sacrificing performance. The color palette encompasses bold brights, heathered hues and refined neutrals to highlight the integrity of the wool fiber.
Light defines the way we observe space and affects our perception of shape and form. Luum’s collection, Phenomenology, is inspired by the nuanced and striking phenomena of light, and how it transforms built environments. Lustrous surfaces and patterns emerge and shift to alter and augment our experience within our environment dependent on our vantage point. 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.
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.
