Concept

Fiord is a versatile woollen upholstery textile with a subtle three-dimensional look. Originally designed by Norwegian designer Tone Barnung, it comes in refreshed colours created in collaboration with Louise Sigvardt. The construction of Fiord combines a mélange yarn with a unicoloured yarn that creates pearl-like dots that play across the textile’s surface. This sophisticated expression reflects a key source of inspiration behind the design: moonlight glittering like pearls on the rippling waters of a Norwegian fjord.

Ranging from dark to light, the 27 colourways for Fiord explore complimentary opposites. They bring together hard and soft tones, as well as cold and warm shades. The mélange yarn has the effect of softening the hue of the unicoloured yarn while accentuating the way the pearls stand out. Made from wool, Fiord is hardwearing. Consequently, it is well-suited for contract environments, as well as private homes.
