Mathilde Aggebo, Julie Henriksen
Felix Bio is designed by Mathilde Aggebo and Julie Henriksen, the duo behind the company Aggebo & Henriksen. The two designers have worked together since meeting at their alma mater, the Danish School of Art and Design. They created the stage curtain for the extension to the Danish Royal Library, the Diamond, and the interior decoration of the student hall Tietgenkollegiet in Copenhagen. Aggebo & Henriksen have been part of Kvadrat’s design team since 2001, designing both curtains and upholstery. In Felix Bio, they have designed a narrow-striped, fil-a-fil woven curtain that allows numerous combinations, as the asymmetrical design can be hung both vertically and horizontally.
Simple and pleasing to the eye, the curtain has a beautiful, understated surface structure that allows the colourful stripes to interplay freely. The stripes in four of the colours are based on a delicate ground colour of blue, green, red or yellow. The fifth colour has multi-coloured stripes on a white base. Having previously made their curtains highly graphic, Aggebo & Henriksen want to create in Felix Bio a series of base colours in the fil-a-fil quality. The colour palette spans from light to dark and from cold to warm, allowing many variations. “The colour palette can be used to distinguish one room from another, create a coherent rhythm or give the impression of calm and balance. The coherent tone of the colour impression allows the colours to create a common identity despite different colour choices,” explains Mathilde Aggebo.
Felix Bio consists of 100% Trevira CS and has special bioactive properties. The textile consists of a minimum of 50% bioactive yarns with silver nano-particles integrated into their fibres. The silver ions break down cell membranes and prevent bacteria from forming. The effect is permanent because the silver ions are integrated into the fibre, preventing them from being washed or worn out. The curtain observes the special hygiene requirements set for textiles in the health sector, and the dirt repellent surface makes it allergy-friendly and easy to maintain.
