in 2008 and


in 2010 with a collaboration with


, the womenswear label founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis in collaboration with designer Erin Beatty.

“This is my third Knoll Luxe collaboration with a fashion designer,” says Dorothy Cosonas, creative director of Knoll Luxe. “I watch the runways closely. I often see a direct influence, especially in terms of color and pattern. Incidentally, Suno just won a 2013


Award for Emerging Talent.”

The collection consists of seven upholstery and two drapery textiles translated from Suno’s recent runway collection. The global influence—from Indian embroidery to vintage Japanese origami paper to the Africa Kagan—is clear but with a fresh and modern interpretation.

Translating fashion fabrics into interior textiles is nothing new to home design, but Casanos pushed herself in an innovative directions: discovering new mills, new constructions and new technologies. The result is a bold collection that stands out in the market.

“These fabrics are intended for a range of different interiors, reaching from residential to high-end hospitality. My goal with Knoll Luxe is always to provide fabric options that appeal to many different audiences,” says Cosonas. “This line, in particular, is very graphic, and I envision it used in a multitude of ways, from a large upholstered piece that is the central focus of a room, to accent pillows, to drapery.”
