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.
Revive 1+2 are vibrant upholstery textiles made from post-consumer recycled polyester (PET). They are especially created with a focus to reduce the environmental impact both in production and natural resources.
The PET comes from used plastic bottles. The production process behind Revive 1+2 is much more efficient than for virgin polyester. Less energy and chemicals are used, while CO2 emissions are minimised.
Georgina Wright: ‘We are all concerned about sustainability. So the thought that a recycled object can become a new textile on a chair is hugely satisfying for a designer.’
The designs of Revive 1+2 are inspired by the textures, colours and materials of harbours and fishing boats. They each comprise two unicolours, one in the warp and one in the weft. These are either tone-in-tone or slightly contrasting. This ensures the designs complement each other well.
Revive 1 features subtle chevron-like shapes, but appears to be solid when viewed from a distance.
The way the pattern emerges from the textile depends on the level of contrast in the colourway.
Due to their durability and added flammability resistance, Revive 1+2 are particularly suitable for contract environments.
