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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Details

Back in 1960, Danish design legend Hans J. Wegner sketched an upholstered easy chair which saw only limited production. Now, Carl Hansen & Son, the Danish furniture maker, has dusted off the drawings to bring this contemporary classic back to life. With its calm, clean lines and exceptional comfort - hallmarks of Wegner's best work - the Wingchair's timeless appeal has already won awards at IMM Cologne 2006, where it was launched in January, and at the Copenhagen International Furniture Fair in May. According to Knud Erik Hansen, Managing Director of Carl Hansen & Son, the Danish furniture producer, the new chair is as close as it can be to the original design. "We have worked with Wegner's original drawings and some of the few pieces that remain from the sixties, when a smaller number of them were produced by hand. And we're proud to say that we have upheld the original construction and materials - including solid beech frames and hand-sewn piping - just the way that Wegner designed it." The look of the Wingchair (CH_445) is unmistakably Hans J. Wegner. Like other of his best chairs, sculptural lines allow it to stand on its own in a variety of settings. Among Wegner's easy chairs, the Wingchair is notable for the serenity and harmony of its design. Its most characteristic visual features are the chair back's distinctive corner angle, shoulder groove and the upholstered armrests.

Hans J. Wegner

Denmark, 1914 - 2007

"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles." – Hans J. Wegner

With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller’s architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.

Over the years, he designed over 500 chairs with many different wood types and styles. He became the undisputed master of Danish chair design. His style is based on clean, simple lines and to Wegner a chair was an artwork as much as a functional object. One of his well-known philosophies was that a chair should be beautiful from every angle and that it should not have a backside. Though Wegner designed for series production, all of his work bears the stamp of the traditionally trained craftsman. Wegner’s most famous chairs are the Wishbone, the Wing, the Elbow and the Shell. Most of his designs are produced by Carl Hansen and are still in production today.
