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.

Remix is a woollen upholstery fabric, created by the acclaimed Italian designer Giulio Ridolfo.

Remix is made from melange yarns, with each thread consisting of three different colours. For each colourway, two different threads are used. The result is irregular colours playing across the surface of the fabric. It is available in many colours, ranging from burnt reds and oranges, dusty blues and greens and subtle charcoal tones to natural shades of yellow, beige and sand.

The leather type "Loke" is a buffed, embossed ox hide with a coated surface.

Hides used for this type of leather are sanded to uniform thickness and then embossed to achieve a uniform surface without visible scares or other marks. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer.

This type of leather has a pleasant surface with low breathability. The advantages of "Loke" leather are that is requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight.

We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want easy maintenance at the lowest possible cost as well as for restaurants, hotels, public spaces etc.

"Loke"-leather is available in many colors. We recommend you to contact your local dealer for experiencing the complete collection.

Passionate craftsmanship means many things to different people. To Carl Hansen it means everything. It has been so ever since 1908 when Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today they continue to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.

Ole Wanscher

Denmark, 1903 - 1985

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985), was born in Copenhagen in 1903 and was an architect and professor of architecture with furniture designs as his specialty. He came to shape Danish furniture, both as an active designer and as a master teacher. His furniture designs are now considered to be modern classics - sophisticated and functional with an exquisite attention to detail.

onstruction and form was of the utmost importance to Ole Wanscher, treating furniture design as if it was a branch of architecture. He studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and also worked for the master himself from 1924-1927, before becoming an independent achitect specializing in furniture design.

Characteristic of Ole Wanscher's design is a quest for slim dimensions and resilient forms. His chairs often employ both slender and slightly curved armrests, which rise in an elegant tip before continuing directly to the floor; as is the case with his well known Colonial Chair. Classic and yet singularly modern at the same time.
