Available in 12 versions, each expression of Onyx has been carefully designed to match the colour-play, pattern and texture of a specific stone or mineral: some feature relief to enhance the depth and play in the fabric. Others offer very intricate and fine structures, which form rhythmic patterns. The rest stand out for their innovative combinations of different threads. In total, there are 5 different patterns in the series.
Like the stones and minerals they are based on, the textiles ‘work with and against the light’, as the designers describe it. This ability lies at the heart of the design and behind the complex weaving structures that characterise Onyx textiles. Onyx textiles are made from Trevira CS, and vary in width from 295cm to 330cm. They are well-suited to a variety of applications, including private homes, hotels, restaurants and public buildings.
Anne Fabricius Møller and Bodil Jerichau went to great lengths to accurately translate their choice of stones and minerals into curtains: after carefully analysing the structure and colour-play of a selection, the designers developed a large number of samples, which featured very fine details. They made these from a variety of materials in different thicknesses and colours, including very fine fishing line, metal and sewing thread.
Onyx is the first professional collaboration between Anne Fabricius Møller and Bodil Jerichau. The two, who attended design school together, were inspired to work on Onyx after visiting a geological museum together.
