TEXTURES FROM NATURE
Natural materials such as wood, stone, porcelain and bamboo, bring a tactile and organic quality to the environment and connect occupants with the soothing elements of the outdoors. Their use not only adds a sense of warmth and authenticity but also contributes to a more sustainable and eco-friendly design.
Incorporating textures reminiscent of natural landscapes, like soft textiles, woven fabrics, and other tactile surfaces can increase the sensory experience within the space. By introducing earthy materials into interior design, designers can create human-centric environments that appeal to our ingrained preferences. A considered approach to materials aligns strongly with the holistic principles of wellness-oriented spaces.
This consideration, paired with the practicality of sustainability is one of our passions in the KP Studio. We have partnered with and are ambassadors for the Campaign for Wool, ensuring the studio uses as many natural fibre textiles in projects as possible. This is not only to achieve the holistic design approach explored above but to continue the wonderful wealth of craftsmanship in our nation. His Royal Highness, King Charles, has stated it is abundantly clear that changes need to be made in the way we produce and dispose of clothing and textiles, “if we are going to get anywhere near to meeting the United Nations climate change goals set for the industry, a major part of that change has to be moving from a linear system to a circular one, where textiles and clothing are produced sustainably, enjoy long use and are made using natural materials.”
