‘[With Kvadrat], we share the identical philosophy that the best requirements in design and supplies might be mixed with vital sustainable and moral actions,’ says #tide co-founder Marc Krebs. ‘[We both] need to create a much-needed social and environmental impression that protects the oceans and helps coastal and island communities of their struggle in opposition to plastic air pollution out of 100 per cent ocean-bound plastic waste.’

Because the title suggests, the gathering is impressed by sportswear and nods to a high-tech aesthetic, with delicate tactile patterns enriching the floor and a color palette outlined by vibrant shades of purple, inexperienced and blue in addition to a collection of neutrals that vary from greys to taupe. Every textile is outlined by a two-tone contrasting composition, enhancing the design’s three dimensional impact. ‘The colors for Sport are divided into “salt and pepper” monochrome nuances, which illuminate the textile’s high-tech graphic character, and stable shades which fade its texture away,’ explains Urquiola.
