or Call to Order

Foss is an uphol­stery textile with a vibrant yet simple expres­sion. Created by Norwe­gian textile designer Tone Barnung and colored by Danish designer Louise Sigvardt, it unites natural and man-made mate­ri­als. Three to four differ­ent mélange or unicol­ored yarns – in differ­ent thick­nesses – are combined in each color-way. The shiny viscose and thick linen yarns give the surface of Foss a subtle shimmer. Foss also has a tactile feel, in addi­tion to its sophis­ti­cated luster. Though it is primar­ily made of wool, it offers the tactile dry touch usually asso­ci­ated with pure linen textiles.
