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.
Star is an interpretation of a classic velour upholstery fabric with a contemporary twist. Designed by Finn Sködt, it shows colours with exceptional clarity. This colour update adds eight new colourways to the original Star palette.
Star has a closely cut pile and is beautifully smooth. When upholstered, it almost looks as if has been painted on: the textile seems to recede into the background, creating a rich interplay of colour.
The new colourways add an extra dimension of subtlety to the unconventional colour scheme for Star 2. They comprise pastel, as well as earthy shades. These complement the retained signature colours from the original palette like Gala Red and Pure Green.
Finn Sködt’s colours are inspired by oil paintings of the Renaissance, particularly portraits of the Madonna depicting drapery. For Star, he has interpreted the hues that characterize these artworks in a contemporary, distinctive way.
Made from Trevira CS, Star is durable and flame-retardant. Consequently, it is particularly well-suited to the contract market.
