The Adjaye Collection
David Adjaye is a world-renowned architect with projects spanning across four continents. He is known for his artist’s insight and for weaving the traditional aesthetics of his African roots with those of modern design. Adjaye is based in London and is widely considered one of the foremost architects of his generation.
The Adjaye Collection is a unique collaboration between the architect and KnollTextiles in which Adjaye’s take on geometric and organic systems is translated through varied weave structures and construction techniques. The end result is an extraordinary range of patterns and textures inspired by African geography, nature, and culture, as well as objects and textiles from the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. Each pattern is named after a place in Africa cherished by Adjaye.
The Adjaye Collection coincides with the “David Adjaye Selects” exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, which is curated by Adjaye himself from works held in their permanent collection.
