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.

Divina means heavenly, or divine, and the name has been chosen for this product because of the way colours can be expressed in the material. Finn Sködt has sought inspiration from the fantastic illustrations which often accompanied books in the middle ages. These were called “illuminations” because of the way they literally illuminated the page. The effect of these book illustrations was produced by the use of clean, clear primary colours, and it is this principle which the designer has sought to recreate in the Divina range. The result is a set of colours which assert themselves and illuminate the products for which they are used.

Divina is a full-cloth product, which means that it is manufactured by weaving the yarn in a coarse linen hose casing, after which, it is subjected to mechanical processing using very high temperatures, at the same time as it is being coloured. This creates a situation where the surface becomes smooth, directionless and uniform in a manner very similar to the properties of felt. The material shrinks by 25-30% during this procedure, and the process can be illustrated by imagining a wool sweater which has been washed at too high a temperature. The result of this kind of processing is called cloth weaving and it is used for finer textures such as uniforms and plaids.

Divina Melange has been extremely well received by the market. It is a textile characterized by its lack of texture and nap and consequently the fabric accentuates the dimensions of the furniture, giving prominence to the colours.

Melange means mixture. The existing colors are produced by mixing varying proportions of either black or brown wool with white wool. The different colours of wool are mixed before the garment is spun. The new colourways have come about by dipping the two base colours in bold, virtually luminous pigments.

Kvadrat’s first textile ‘Hallingdal’ has become the archetype of woollen textiles. The very durable upholstery fabric was originally designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel, and is now available in a version with an updated colour scale: Hallingdal 65.

Hallingdal 65 is made of wool and viscose, which complement each other well: the wool provides excellent durability and flexibility, whilst the viscose adds brilliance and depth to the colour. Both materials are dyed before they are spun, which highlights the rich texture of the fabric. The versatile palette includes neutral and strong, primary colours, as well as the designer’s favourite hues: turquoise and pink.

Hallingdal has been continually produced by Kvadrat since the company was established. To this day, it remains one of the best selling textiles of the Kvadrat collection. Over the years, the versatile design has been used in a wide variety of interiors, including private homes, hospitals, airports and trains.

As if Pierre Paulin had premonitions of Flower Power, the simple Tulip spreads its half-open petals around the sitter, inviting and warming at the same time.There is a stately Tulip with a high back, which is an eminently comfortable fauteuil. With its matching footstool, it makes a strong and yet exceptionally comfortable combination. Restored to its place of honour - the Tulip (the big one) with its original cross-base. Having once fallen from favour due to the arrival of the swivelling disk base, it can now be admired in all its original glory. The metal-strip cross-base looks lighter and airier than the disk and gives the Tulip an elegant twist.

Pierre Paulin

Pierre Paulin 

France, 1927 - 2009

Pierre Pauling was a French furniture designer and interior designer. His uncle Georges Paulin was a part-time automobile designer and invented the mechanical retractible hardtop. He was later executed by the Nazi's in 1941 as a hero of the French Resistance. After failing his Baccalauréat, he trained to become a ceramist in Vallaurius on the French Rivera and then as a stone-carver in Burgundy. Soon after, he injured his right arm in a fight, ending his dreams as a sculptor but attend the Ecole Camondo in Paris. He had a stint with the Gascoin company in Le Havre where he gained an interest in Scandinavian and Japanese design. He was famed for his innovative work with Artifort in the 1960s and interior design in the 70's.

At the time, his chair designs were considered very modern and unique and kick started the successes of his designs among the younger population. Even today, his pieces are still being made and are sought after at auctions.

Pierre Paulin had his debut exhibition at the Salon des arts ménagers in 1953. Afterwards, his would appear on the cover of the magazine La Maison Française. A year later he would be employed by the Thonet company and began experimenting with stretching swimwear materials over traditionally made chairs. Around 4 years later he would join the Maastricht-based Dutch manufacturers Artifort. Working at Artifort he would become famous worldwide with his Mushroom chair (1960). At his time working for Artifort, Paulin quoted "It represented the first full expression of my abilities. I considered the manufacture of chairs to be rather primitive and I was trying to think up new processes" he said in 2008, he worked with foams and rubbers from Italy all worked around a light metallic frame. He would then use a new stretch material over the chair. His designs were focused on applied design rather than focusing on form with comfort as his chair's starting-point. The combination of these materials made Paulin's chair designs made rounder, and comfortable shapes that are still being used in chairs today.

During the 70's and 80's he was invited to decorate and furnish several important places for important people. He redecorated the living, dining, smoking and exhibition rooms of the Elysée's private apartments for Pompidou in 1971. In 1983 he furnished the office of François Mitterrand. In 1979 he launched his own consultancy and worked for Calor, Ericsson, Renault, Saviem, Tefal, Thomson and Airbus.In 1994 he would retire to the Cévennes in southern France but would still continue on designing furniture. He died on the 13th of June, 2009 in a hospital in Montpellier, France.
