The latest Sancal collection highlights the performance of a new "ultra-tough" knitted textile that does not sacrifice the aesthetic of the piece for functional purposes. The effortless application of the material means that it is inherently practical. Sancal dubbs this resource 'Rift' and advertises the fact that it is completely fireproof.
The furniture is sculptural and chromatic. It ever-so-slightly builds on the styles of art-deco movements. The new offerings — from the cozy seating arrangements to the fashion-forward products, present Sancal's exploration of the desert landscape. Thus, the cracked pattern of the upholstery is a nod to the "cracks on a scorched earth." The bold colorways add a visually striking element to the furniture. Although the tough knitted textile is guaranteed to be extremely durable, the fabric itself "feels soft and smooth to the touch."
