Designed circa 1965 by leading British textile designer, Marianne Straub, this moquette was widely used between the 1970s and 1980s on the Northern, Piccadilly and Bakerloo Lines and on London Transport buses. Featuring large-scale interlocking blocks of colour, this scaled up geometric velvet creates a striking, graphic statement.

Continuing the success of Kirkby Design’s first collaboration with Transport for London (TfL), Underground Vol.II features a carefully considered curation of 7 distinct designs, originating from individual London transport lines. Readapted as luxury upholstery velvets and playing with scale, texture and colour, these sophisticated geometrics are presented in an entirely modern, trend driven palette. With designs ranging from the 1930s to present day, Underground Vol.II taps into the rich design history of TfL, vividly commemorating an iconic aspect of London’s design identity.
