Designers Camille Blatrix and Joschua Brunn came up with their idea for Orillon in a Parisian bar, a venue where the countertop dice game 421 was once a popular pastime. The game is simple but addictive – players use three dice to rack up as many points as possible over the course of 10 rounds.

When approached by Kvadrat to create an object using its Febrik knitted textiles, Blatrix and Brunn’s experience of 421 led them to the idea of designing a dice tray. The padded nature of knitted textiles mean they work well as a shock absorber, allowing players to roll and throw their dice without too much bounce.

Orillon consists of a cherrywood CNC-machined frame, which is upholstered with Febrik Sprinkles – the playful pattern of which inspired Blatrix and Brunn
