Transport for London - Cross Rail

Wallace Sewell were invited to design the seating fabric for the new Cross Rail (Elizabeth Line), which opens in late 2019.  Designing for the public realm brings a new set of challenges and parameters, creating a fabric that is both low maintenance, and also fits effortlessly into its environment.  The Cross Rail design is woven using only a handful of coloured yarns, yet the way they are interwoven, creates many more tones and hues.  The seating is made from a highly durable specialised woven fabric velveteen called moquette.  Harriet says on designing for transport: “Something like a transport fabric, you should be able to sit on it and it just works. It’s utilitarian and in some ways you shouldn’t even notice it,”
