Steve Symons

CEO of BuzziSpace

November 2015
Young Belgian brand BuzziSpace and family-run Danish fabric firm Kvadrat joined forces at Maison&Objet in Paris and at 100% Design in London, where they launched the first range of BuzziSpace furniture upholstered with Kvadrat fabrics. “A major project has brought us together”, as Steve Symons puts it. “We are active in the same market, and although interior designers regularly ask us to get together, we’ve never done so... Up until now, we have upholstered our designs with our own fabrics, such as the signature material BuzziFelt, with its high sound absorbency. But there are three factors that have brought our two businesses together: sustainability, quality, and international ambitions. Kvadrat is the number one premium fabric brand in the sector. We would not enter into a commitment like this with just anyone, but with Kvadrat it is almost inevitable. Great minds think alike. We have the same principles in terms of sustainability and quality, and we think along absolutely the same lines.”
