Kvadrat has launched a new curtain collection featuring a contemporary
design with vibrant patterns.
Designed by Aggebo & Henriksen, the new digitally printed curtains
help create atmosphere in a room and complement each other to achieve varied
Both Sparkling and Drizzle feature a unicolour pattern at the bottom of
the curtain, which moves upwards to melt into a lively play of organic shapes,
steadily tapering away into the white base fabric.
Julie Henriksen explains that the two curtains, Sparkling and Drizzle,
explore their perception of ornamentation, colour and decoration in a
contemporary way. She described the colour gradient of their pattern as
reminiscent of water meeting land or moss on stone.
While Sparkling is densely woven, Drizzle is transparent and expresses
colours in a more dissolved way. Both curtains can be used horizontally or
Mixing three colours in every colourway, Sparkling and Drizzle combine
neutral, natural colours, or a neutral shade with a bright contrast colour.
Some combinations have a graphic look while others are more floral in
Drill, the third curtain in the collection features a vertical pattern
of laser-cut holes that travels along its selvedge, creating a poetic play of
light and shadow.
Mathilde Aggebo explains that Drill’s vertical pattern, which is reminiscent
of light reflected on water or light that comes through the leaves of a tree on
a spring day, creates rhythm and variation in a very simple, modern way. Drill
has a rough selvedge that creates an intriguing contrast to the clean-cut
holes. The curtain can also be supplied with the selvedge laser-cut to achieve
a more precise look.
Aggebo & Henriksen’s Mathilde Aggebo and Julie Henriksen met at the
Danish Design School in 1991, and have since collaborated on a number of
prestigious interior design projects and exhibitions.
