The Nick Cave Collection

Taking inspiration from specific sculptures and installations, groundbreaking artist Nick Cave layers pattern and multiple craft techniques for a collection of upholstery, wallcovering, and drapery that establishes a new point of view on the textile experience.

KnollTextiles Nick Cave Collection
About the Designer

Nick Cave

Born in 1959 in Missouri, Nick Cave works across both the visual and performing arts, tapping various media including sculpture, installation, video, sound, and performance.

Throughout his practice, Cave has created spaces of memorial in which his audiences confront the urgent issues of race, social justice, and identity politics in the United States. In his work, Cave reminds us that along with despair, there remains the opportunity for hope and renewal.

Perhaps best known for his Soundsuits, Cave creates dimension in textiles by layering, rearranging, and transforming everyday objects such as beads, doilies, sequins, and synthetic hair into material and sociopolitical representations. The heartbeat of all his work can be found in this combination of the high and low.
