Denmark - 1984
The graphic designer and artist, Finn Sködt, has worked with Kvadrat for many years and has, amongst other things, designed Campas, Pro, Topas and, just as importantly, our Divina upholstery range, which has become a classic within the collection and is still very popular.
Finn Sködt is renowned for his exceptional ability in first finding and then blending colours. His starting point is always in the primary colours - red, yellow and blue; after which he begins to pick out other colours and nuances Finn Sködt’s work especially favours clear colours and is often inspired by his background in graphics and the arts.
Divina is a full-cloth product, which means that it is manufactured by weaving the yarn in a coarse linen hose casing, after which, it is subjected to mechanical processing using very high temperatures, at the same time
as it is being coloured. This creates a situation where the surface becomes smooth, directionless and uniform in a manner very similar to the properties of felt. The material shrinks by 25-30% during this procedure, and the process can be illustrated by imagining a wool sweater which has been washed at too high a temperature. The result of this kind of processing is called cloth weaving and it is used for finer textures such as uniforms and plaids.
Since Divina was first launched in 1984, and in consultation with Finn Sködt, the colour range has been modified on an ongoing basis. The new colour palette is inspired by the popularity of pang colours and the desire to introduce these to other colours. Thus, the new colour palette also contains clear, strong colours in blue, green and yellow.
