Tonus 4 is a colour update of Tonus, an elastic upholstery fabric by late textile artist Nina Koppel. Ideal for modern organic furniture and characterised by rare colour richness.

The story behind Tonus starts at the end of the 1960s, when the furniture manufacturer Kevi A/S introduced the Jørgen Rasmussen office chair. The chair was in a sculptural form, which made upholstering it complex and expensive. The search for a stretchable fabric began and this led to the development of Tonus.

Now recognised as a classic textile, Tonus brings colours to life in vibrant, precise fashion. Building on this characteristic, the intensity and brightness of all the colours have been increased.

The new earthy, golden tones in the palette are taken from Nina Koppel’s original colour archive. They show her brilliant sense of colour, which reflects that she mastered all facets of the colour design from the warm tones associated with spices and Oriental mysticism, to the cooler Nordic aquamarine colours.

“First the person, then the chair.”  - Geoffrey Harcourt

Trained at the Royal Academy in London, Harcourt designed his first series of open-armed chairs for Artifort in 1962. His design for Artifort, the 042 series in 1963, was an immediate success and brought Artifort to the attention of the international market. His philosophy is that the chair should focus on the person and not the other way around.

Considered a monument in the modern interior, his 1970 Chaise Lounge for Artifort is a “perfect seat for stretching out and letting yourself go.” Harcourt has won many prizes and in 1978 was awarded the title of Royal Designer for Industry.
