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.
In 2000, Kvadrat presented Tonica, a mixed wool furniture fabric specially designed for the office furniture sector, which retains its look and feel even during hard everyday wear in offices. The main requirement of Tonica was to obtain a blend in the surface of the fabric while retaining the solid colour expression, so that you get a clear and vivid colour shadowed with black. The colours of Tonica are created, by doing both a light grey and a dark grey mélange in the same 14 colours. This produces 14 light and 14 dark mélange colours in Tonica. In music, tonika is the keynote in a scale, a note where you feel “at home” because the melody in the mode concerned often ends on tonika. This feeling is elegantly transferred to the upholstery Tonica, which exactly expresses something safe and comfortable.
