Fiord 2 is a versatile woollen upholstery textile with a subtle three-dimensional expression. Originally designed by Tone Barnung, it comes in an updated, expansive colour scale crafted by Louise Sigvardt. Constructed with a mélange yarn and a unicoloured yarn, Fiord 2 features pearl-like dots that play across its surface. This sophisticated expression reflects a source of inspiration behind the design: moonlight glittering on the rippling waters of a Norwegian fjord.
Louise Sigvardt has refreshed the flexible palette for Fiord 2 with
12 new saturated notes with warm, vibrant nuances. These respect
the original colour concept of combining complementary yet
diametrically opposite colours, and are inspired by the vibrant
colours she encountered travelling in Mexico. For instance, the magenta is based on a traditional Mexican dye,
which is widely used by avant-garde architects like Luis Barragán.
Louise Sigvardt combined this tone with a grey to represent the
mood of both Scandinavia and Latin America. Meanwhile, the
yellow hues reference Mexican plastered walls, which reminded
her of Fiord’s textured surface.
Louise Sigvardt: “The new colours of Fiord create a connection between traditional Scandinavian muted notes and colourful Mexico. Similarly, Barragán was inspired by minimalist aesthetics in his buildings but has added the traditions and atmospheres from the country he grew up in. This is the essence of Fiord: to create an expression that blends different parts of the world in a way that feels natural, like something one has known for a lifetime.”
Fiord 2 is durable and flame-retardant. Consequently, it is wellsuited
to both public and private places.
