Kvadrat Divina MD Fabric
Divina MD from Kvadrat is an upholstery textile designed by Finn Sködt. Available in sophisticated, rich colors, which reveal hidden depths as the perspective of the viewer changes, it makes a strong color statement. In addition, thanks to its smooth, directionless, and consistent surface, it complements the shape of furniture very well and is ideal for organically shaped furniture.
Divina MD’s full-bodied and subtle structure is ideal for bringing an extensive range of tones to life. Its colorways, which are all crafted from a blend of different tones, appear uni-colored from a distance, but reveal different color nuances under closer examination.
