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.

Jasper Morrison

UK, 1959

“My grandfather had decorated one room of his house in the Scandinavian style of the ‘60s—bare floors, long-haired white rugs—and in it was a Braun record player with wooden side panels. I was impressed by the room and the record player.” – Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959. He studied at the Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, graduating in 1985. Since 1986 he has opened his Office for Design in London.

Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of “New Simplicity,” a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein.

Recent projects include the design of the furniture for the Tate Modern in London, the Folding Air-Chair and Low Air-Table for Magis, flatware, glassware and other home accessories for Alessi, the Flos Glo-Ball lighting series and furniture for Vitra.

Jasper Morrison Ltd. is currently based in London and Paris.
