Panorama, Diorama and Suite by Margrethe Odgaard

Margrethe Odgaard’s new curtain collection comprises three elegant satin-woven curtains: Panorama, Diorama and Suite. Though each design has its own story to tell, they share rich, natural colours and traits: all feature one side that is a polarised mirror of the other. Surprising and eye-catching whether seen from inside or outside, they are subtly lustrous on one side and more matte on the other.

Margrethe Odgaard: “When creating the collection, I did a lot of research into traditional interior architecture. During the baroque period in the 1700s, for instance, it was common to divide walls with profiled timber 1/3 from the floor and up. In contrast, French Modernism was characterised by extending the ceiling 1/3 down the wall. Depending on where the dividing line is set, it influences a person’s own reflection within a space and can be used to make a room look larger.

Atlas by MArgrethe Odgaard

Designed by Margrethe Odgaard Atlas was created to deliver a pioneering mélange look that compliments the existing mélanges in the Kvadrat collection. She achieved this with a construction that unites two different coloured yarns – each of which combines two colours – in the warp and the weft.

Margrethe Odgaard: “When working on the textile’s palette, we chose 37 out of 1216 possible colourways. Atlas reminds me of small topographic maps describing a rich, sensuous and vibrating world of nuances.”

Patio by Karina Nielsen Rios

Patio is an upholstery textile developed for outdoors, which offers exceptional colour vibrancy. Designed by Karina Nielsen Rios, it is made with a highly durable, specially developed Trevira CS yarn.

A result of 3 years intensive research, Patio features a fluorocarbon-free, environmentally-focused finish, which is water-repellent and fast-drying. It also provides resistance against chlorine, seawater and artificial weathering and is flame-retardant. In addition to its technical features, it also stands out for a soft touch compared to other outdoor fabrics.

Highfield designed by Alfredo Häberli

Highfield is an upholstery textile with a sporty expression crafted by Alfredo Häberli. It comes in updated colours and a top layer made of the textile Field – also by the Argentinian-born designer – which features a pronounced checkered pattern.

Alfredo Häberli: ‘My idea for Highfield was to achieve a three-dimensional, soft surface. The irregular circles in the material add sparkle to the surface and the pattern suits furniture well with its combination of square and organic forms’.

Still by Georgina Wright

Still is a natural-looking, exceptionally soft chenille upholstery textile designed by Georgina Wright. Dynamic yet understated, it is inspired by the still-life paintings of British artist Ivon Hitchens.

Constructed from Chenille yarn, Still has a striated expression that runs in the direction of the weft. It also features a subtle matt sheen and the dry-hand feel typically associated with cotton, despite being crafted from man-made fibres.

Georgina Wright: “Ivon Hitchens’ panoramic paintings are directly derived from landscape views. When applied to a textile, his colour universe adds a new layer to the totality of the design.

Clouds by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec

In collaboration with Kvadrat, internationally acclaimed designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have created Clouds, an innovative, interlocking textile tile concept for the home. Made from one element and attached with special rubber bands, they can be installed to a wall or hung from a ceiling.

This piece instantly produces three-dimensional shapes that constantly evolve as you keep adding new elements to the geometry by banishing traditional rectangular settlements. Clouds coat architecture in a more fluid yet dynamic way; bringing surprisingly colourful fabric windows to any room,’ Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Kelim Patterns

Kelim Patterns adds a fresh, contemporary perspective to the sensuous world of Kinnasand Kelim rugs. It comprises four designs, each available in three colourways, characterised by dynamic dialogues between pattern, colour and weaving structure.

Meticulously crafted by hand from pure New Zealand Wool, the Kelim Patterns rugs are handwoven using a nomadic flatweave technique. They reenvisage artisanal Kelim patterns in a new light, playing with scale, contrast and motion.
