or Call to Order

Letters, designed by Gunnar Aagaard Ander­sen for Kvadrat, is a collage based on curtailed typo­graph­i­cal motifs of capital and small letters and numbers. Although the fabric was orig­i­nally produced in the mid-1950s, it might as well be the latest fashion. Aagaard Ander­sen is one of the most compre­hen­sive, exper­i­men­tal, and fasci­nat­ing artists of the 20th century.


Gunnar Aagaard Andersen


Gunnar Aagaard Andersen is an artist, sculptor, architect, furniture, and textile designer and pioneer of Danish Modern Art. A graduate of Denmark’s School of Arts and Crafts, his output explored non-figurative expressionism, the refraction of light, the nature of color, and the structure of the form.

In developing his work, Gunnar Aagaard Andersen consistently experimented with unexpected media and innovative materials. He derived his motifs from sensual impressions, transforming them into visual, dynamic forms.
