Scott Care’s surface is treated with a C6 finish, a treatment with a lower environmental impact than other fluorocarbon alternatives, which makes it water and soil repellent. The fabric also has a backing made of polyurethane, a better choice in terms of human health and the environment than PVC. The backing prevents penetration of fluids while offering good breathability, ensuring Scott Care is very comfortable, and remains so when sat on for a long time.
In addition, thanks to these features, Scott Care is easier to clean than traditional Trevira CS, though regular cleaning and immediate stain removal is recommended to ensure a long life span.
Scott and Scott Care share the same sophisticated colourways. These range from cool blues to warm reds.
Each colourway consists of a blend of 10 contrasting tones, which neutralise each other to deliver a clean, balanced look.
At first glance the fabrics have a simple expression, but under closer inspection they reveal complex interactions between the different colours on the warp and weft yarns. Vibeke Rohland: ‘My goal was to contrast the colour nuances, to create a play in the expression of the fabric.
One can go on a colour expedition in each colourway.’
The idea of balancing contrasts is a theme that underpins much of Vibeke Rohland’s intuitive and uncompromising work. At first, many of her designs appear simple but, when given a closer look, reveal details that challenge the initial perception of the viewer.
Vibeke Rohland graduated from the Danish School of Art and Design in 1986. Her wide-ranging portfolio, which includes mass produced items and one-off works, ranges from bags and cushions to tablecloths and curtains.
