Woollen upholstery textile Atlas is designed by Margrethe Odgaard. It particularly stands out for its new mélange expression and meticulously nuanced colour blends.
Atlas was created to deliver a pioneering mélange look that compliments the existing mélanges in the Kvadrat collection. Margrethe Odgaard has achieved this with a construction that unites two different coloured yarns – each of which combines two colours – in the warp and the weft.
With Atlas, unlike other mélanges, the colours are not blended in the fibres. Instead they are expressed, pattern-like, through the structure of the material. As a result, the textile offers exceptional colour intensity and intricate colour details.
