Brentano Redesigns Award Winner at Half Scale

Nova is textile designer’s new, compact version of contract textile Equinox.

Chicago, IL, May 01, 2016 --( Brentano’s spring 2016 collection synthesizes the textile line's strengths in residential, hospitality and contract textiles. Referencing previous successes — like 2015’s IIDA/HD Product Design Award winner Equinox — the 21 new patterns in Cornerstone lay a foundation for Brentano’s next quarter century.

Exactly half the scale of Equinox, new performance pattern Nova packs an explosion of triangles into a compact form. Designed for smaller pieces, 54” Nova’s seven colorways coordinate perfectly with Equinox, each undulating from dark to light and back to dark in the same fashion. The newest addition to Brentano’s line of contract textiles fits in perfectly with a strong, nylon warp, a GreenShield finish and an abrasion resistance over 75,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek, Cotton Duck).
