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.

Steelcut Trio 2 is a hardwearing upholstery textile, which has the same construction as Steelcut 2. Designed by Frans Dijkmeijer and coloured by Giulio Ridolfo, it is now available in a wider choice of colours.

Like Steelcut 2, Steelcut Trio 2 features an innovative weave, which gives the fabric a three-dimensional surface resembling small pyramids or steel points and, despite the complexity of the weave, a simple and precise expression.

The difference between Steelcut Trio 2 and Steelcut 2 lies in the way they are coloured. Unlike Steelcut 2, Steelcut Trio 2 is yarn-dyed and made from 3 differently coloured yarns, often with very bright tones on the warp and lighter tones on the weft. This combination not only accentuates the three dimensional character of the weave, it also adds life to the fabric: though it looks unicoloured from a distance, different shades are revealed as the viewer gets nearer.

Giulio Ridolfo designed these shades by exploring the complex visual effects created by working with three different coloured yarns.

The new palette explores ‘the beauty and intensity’ of the fabric, and includes fresh whites, neutral skin tones, glassy light blues, terracotta, clay, dark indigos and unpredictable blacks. Giulio Ridolfo: ‘I concentrated on the most “iridescent” aspects of light, as I was looking for a rainbow effect. I paid particular attention to making every colour nuance vibrant.’

Tricoloured Steelcut Trio 2 combines well with unicoloured Steelcut 2. For example, upholstering a chair with Steelcut 2 on the seat and Steelcut Trio on back creates a particularly bold and contemporary look.

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.

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.

“Everything is really about materials in their absolute simplicity. If possible, everything we make is informed by an absolute love of materials: cast-iron for its weight, copper for its warmth, etc. One common thread running through is materiality. This is our recipe.” – Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon is a British designer, born in Tunisia. He moved to England in 1963. Educated in London he dropped out of the Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band Funkapolitan before teaching himself welding.

Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980s as the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture. He set up “Space” as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980s, he was working for the Italian company Cappellini for whom he designed the iconic S Chair. By the 1990s, he was practically a household name and Jack, his polypropylene, “sitting, stacking, lighting thing,” designed for his own company, Eurolounge, was hugely popular.

With a recognized commitment to innovation and a mission to revive the British furniture and design industry, the Tom Dixon brand is inspired by the unique heritage, the individualistic innovation and the robust, no nonsense engineering of the UK. Today the Tom Dixon portfolio consists of over 200 products of lighting, furniture and home accessories.
