Florentijn Bio curtain fabric
Mathilde Aggebo, Julie Henriksen
Florentijn 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. The idea behind Florentijn was to create a woven curtain with a simple striped design, yet giving a predominantly solid colour impression. The curtain was designed to work either individually or combined to allow multiple colour variations based on a simple and practical modular system.
The design of the curtain is centred around the line that occurs when two colours meet. The idea is to allow the two colours to extend into a mega-striped sequence when several curtains are used together. Juxtaposing all the colours creates a colour extravaganza. The curtain can also be used to create a peaceful two-coloured room, as the individual curtain length is repeated several times. Florentijn 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. Florentijn Bio is avaliable in eight colours, four bright and four in subdued tones.
