Melange Nap is a woollen upholstery textile characterised by exceptional depth of colour and surprising details. Designed by Akira Minagawa, it offers a distinctively unique melange expression.
Extremely soft yet durable, Melange Nap appears to be brushed. It is constructed with a unicoloured and a melange yarn, which creates a graphic pattern of tiny dots that play across its surface.
The volume of details that emerges from the surface of Melange Nap depends on the contrast between the yarns. Some of the darker colourways almost appear unicoloured whereas others have an intriguing multi-coloured look.
Akira Minagawa: ‘Melange Nap transforms an interior into ‘scenery’ within its space. The colour compositions are inspired by six elements from the natural world: Forest, Sun, Ocean, Minerals, Earth, and Dune. Each expression of the textile harmonises with its surroundings in an individual way, while creating a sense of the peace that comes from nature.’
Suitable for public and private spaces, Melange Nap
comes in a number of colours derived from upholstery textile Forest Nap, also designed by Akira Minagawa. Consequently, they combine particularly well.
