or Call to Order

Savanna and Medina are uphol­stery textiles, which combine differ­ent types of yarns and mate­ri­als to offer distinc­tive depth and rich­ness. Both have been created by acclaimed Danish design­ers, Aggebo & Henrik­sen. The design­ers blended yarns with contrast­ing char­ac­ters to give Savanna and Medina elegant, sophis­ti­cated and indi­vid­ual struc­tures: both textiles fuse shiny yarns, matt yarns and bouclé yarns. As a result, they each feature a rich, irreg­u­lar surface, which reveals an eye-catch­ing play of details when seen from close up.

Aggebo & Henriksen

DENMARK

Mathilde Aggebo and Julie Henriksen are one of Denmark’s most innovative design duos. They have worked together since 1991, exhibited at the Charlottenborg spring and autumn exhibitions, and received the Danish State Art Foundation’s grant several times. They often use a systematic method to focus on detail and magnify it many times over. For example, their portfolio includes stage curtains for the Queen’s Hall in ‘Diamanten,’ the new annex of The Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen. While researching, they discovered some original Hans Christian Andersen manuscripts and used printed fragments of his handwriting for the stage curtains, made from Divina fabric by Kvadrat. To Aggebo & Henriksen, what matters most is the ability to change perceptions. Good design, they say, is like an intriguing riddle: It is about being able to see something every day and crafting it to become something unique.
