Concept

Medina is an upholstery textile, which combine different types of yarns and materials to offer distinctive depth and richness. It has been created by acclaimed Danish designers, Aggebo & Henriksen. The designers blended yarns with contrasting characters to give Medina an elegant and sophisticated structure: the textiles fuse shiny yarns, matt yarns and bouclé yarns. As a result, it features a rich, irregular surface, which reveals an eye-catching play of details when seen from close up. Medina come in 12 refined and natural colourways, each of which projects a unique sense of depth. Some combine neutral yet strong colours, such as dark coffee and charcoal; others consist of more understated tones, like cream and wheat; the rest fuse understated hues with stronger shades. The inspiration behind Medina comes from ‘medina’ quarters, which are found in many North African cities: these are carfree areas that are packed with maze-like streets and buzz with life. The structure of the textile creates a simple pattern, which reflects the geometric details of the buildings that typically line their narrow streets. Aggebo & Henriksen: ‘The primarily neutral colours of Medina reflect the light and shadow, as well as the cold and warmth that define the daily rhythm of that particular part of a city.’
