With its unusual 3D appearance, this upholstery fabric is an innovative, three-dimensional fabric inspired by the Japanese art of origami. It is produced by combining solid individual fabric segments, creating a play of light and shade.
Pivot Origami is made possible thanks to an innovative manufacturing process, generating special folding patterns which have been predefined in the greycloth using the Jacquard technique.
In addition to its three-dimensional appearance, this material offers good seating comfort, breathability and is also available in flame retardant Trevira CS.
This material was a winner of the Red Dot Award “best of the best 2013” category. Munzert has since developed this inspiring upholstery fabric under the PIVOT brand, offering new possibilities for furniture manufacturers and brands.
