or Call to Order

Kvadrat’s first textile Halling­dal’ has become the arche­type of woolen textiles. The very durable uphol­stery fabric was orig­i­nally designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel, and is now avail­able in a version with an updated color 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.

Nanna Ditzel

DENMARK 1923-2005

Nanna Ditzel is an iconic figure of mid-century Danish design. Like many of her contemporaries, she began as a cabinetmaker. After graduating from the School of Arts and Crafts and The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1946, Ditzel went on to design timeless pieces of furniture, jewelry, and textiles. Her work embraced the latest production and material innovations of her time with designed objects which utilize a broad spectrum of materials, including fiberglass, wicker, and metal. Ditzel’s work often made use of color and organic forms and is widely celebrated for its timeless functionality. This quality is never more apparent than in her classic textile design Hallingdal 65 for Kvadrat, which has remained in constant production and widespread use since its launch in 1965.
