Kvadrat Savanna Fabric
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
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.
