Nordhavn sends a textile message
by Fabian Peters | 12/8/2017
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec not only dream up textile designs for Kvadrat. They have also for the second time designed the label’s Copenhagen flagship showroom.
Originally designed by Ulf Moritz, Dune is now available in a new colour palette created by Giulio Ridolfo. The new colours recall walks in Skagen in the extreme north of Denmark, with sea views, blue skies and ever-changing dune formations. Both Moritz and Ridolfo took their inspiration from the landscapes, and indeed, Dune’s structure is also reminiscent of an aerial view of a recently ploughed field. Dune can also be used as a wall-hanging; its striking aesthetics and the superb sound absorption qualities of pure new wool lend a serene and calming effect to any space.
Moritz designs are often characterised by texture, light and a sense of motion and he wanted to show how these characteristics would translate into a rug design. Made using a fusion-bonded production process Dune has a strong, structured finish with a 10 centimetre end-loop – a reference to textiles. The end result highlights the raw nature of the wool felt.
