"We wanted to created a ensemble of characters that celebrate the sartorial and spacial qualities of wool," Jonathan Levien told Dezeen.

Designed to showcase all the wool fabrics in Kvadrat's collection, Doshi Levien's characters formed from geometric shapes and volumes fly, bounce and spin around each other in the short animation.

The 12 colourful characters in the parade were inspired by theatre costumes from the early Bauhaus period.

    Utterly charming. They remind me of deep sea creatures wafting around the ocean floor.

    I am thinking fancy cat-scratch furniture. Looks great.
