Product description

An evolution of Panorama’s design, Diorama also features a unicoloured horizontal block stripe, which in return is complimented by subtle vertical pinstripes. These run from the middle to the bottom of the design.

As light travels through the fabric, the pinstripes appear to emerge from its surface, creating a vibrant surface with optical colour blends. Fittingly, the name of the textile refers to a type of picture-viewing device of the 1800’s, which was created by painting on both sides of a transparent canvas. Almost unicoloured, the pinstripes explore perception and contrast: some combinations are bold and unexpected, while others are more tone-on-tone. Due to the weave, they can be seen from the backside of the curtain. Like Panorama, Diorama’s palette consists of earthy, subtle hues together with richer, brighter tones.

Panorama, Diorama and Suite are elegant satin-woven curtains designed by Margrethe Odgaard. They explore the relationship between stripes, colours and bindings in an intriguing, individual way. Each side of the curtains offers a polarised mirror of the other. On one side, the weave has a subtle lustre; on the other, a more matte expression. Consequently, the designs are equally elegant and surprising whether seen from indoors or outdoors.

Margrethe Odgaard looked to classic architecture when creating the patterns for Panorama, Diorama and Suite. Specifically, she was inspired by wainscoting, which is wooden panelling installed on walls for functional and sometimes also decorative reasons.

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.”

Suitable for contract environments and private spaces, Panorama, Diorama and Suite share a number of colours and work particularly well together. The palettes for the curtains incorporate rich natural colours, as well as highlight tones.
