About Finn Sködt

Colours are fluid and the colour blue, especially, is always going somewhere

Finn Sködt trained as a graphic artist at the Graphic Institute of Denmark, Copenhagen, after spending some time at the Aarhus Academy of Fine Arts.

Today, he works with textile design, graphic design, painting, sculpture, and colour composition from his home and workshop, situated in the attractive surroundings of Helgenæs, Denmark. Finn Sködt has been creating upholstery and curtain textiles for Kvadrat since the early 1980s. He is renowned for his exceptional ability in finding and blending colours.

His starting point is always the primary colours – red, yellow and blue; after which he begins to pick out other colours and nuances. Finn Sködt’s work especially favours clear colours and is often inspired by his background in graphics and the arts. The style of his graphic art, as well as his textiles is pure and aesthetic, often featuring his favourite colour: Ultramarine blue.
