imm cologne 2020 has provided its annual update on the state of our lifestyles. Our review of the trade fair.
Nitto is a knitted woollen upholstery textile designed by Alfredo Häberli. It especially stands out for its direct approach to colour, vibrant mélange expression and three-dimensional construction. A micromesh knit, Nitto unites two layers crafted with contrasting yarn-dyed unicoloured yarns. The textile’s base layer subtly echoes its primarily woollen surface.
Alfredo Häberli: ‘The dichroism of the upper and lower layer only becomes visible if you take a closer look. The mixing of colours is, however, subtler, thanks to the fineness of the pattern.’
As opposed to other knitted mesh textiles, Nitto has a plain, smooth surface and the light volume traditionally associated with woven textiles. It comes in a flexible scale of colourways. This comprises bolder tones that accentuate its sporty character, as well as a series of complementary calm, rich neutrals.
Due to its knitted construction, Nitto is particularly
stretchable and is therefore ideal for organically shaped
furniture. It is suitable for both private and contract spaces.
