Design Goes Square 

With conventions being challenged, hierarchies flattened, and traditions overturned, society is redefining values to the extent that design sets out to deliberately break convention and celebrate human imperfection, the less usual, and the uncommon. Space and color appear warped, creating an optical illusion. The Square Family’s Pyramid, Square and Base Flat Backs echo the new design principles of flexibility and modularity; they offer endless ways to create mold-breaking surface effects in uneven futuristic patterns that echo the value revolution that’s afoot. 

The three members of the Square Family come in three sizes (4 mm, 6 mm, 10 mm) in a palette of Crystal, 6 effects and 1 color; customization options are also available, and can be found in the customized catalog or by request. Designing patterns made of size, height, and shape combinations makes for expressive, individualistic looks that give unbelievable light reflection. They create an almost pixel effect that is perfect for bold, contemporary motifs in womenswear, accessories and shoes. This works equally well when three different articles, or three different sizes of the same article, are mixed. Check out the Crystal catalog here.


Pre-coated with heat-sensitive glue, the Square Family crystals are easily applied to a wide range of textile carrier materials using a heat press, giving durable and long-lasting results. However, it is important to remember that the height of the crystals means that the heat has to be applied from the back, so do use a compensating pad such as a silicone ironing pad/foam (art. 9010/002). Find more about application instructions here.


P, F and W cleaning is possible; alternatively, turn the fabric inside out and wash by hand (30C max.) using a mild, chlorine-free laundry detergent, and avoid tumble drying. Find more about care instructions here.
