The Danish textile company Kvadrat invited designers to create new works from its Hallingdal 65 fabric. The fabric was designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1965 and was known for its durability and rich color pallette.
One of these works is by French designer François Mangeol, who designed the NANNA Bench as his tribute to the designer herself. Simply put, the bench itself may be constructed in any combination of colors or varying lengths and sizes – just as flexible as the material itself.
The thick, padded seat is made using a dovetailing process in which all of the fabric pieces are folded and stacked one on one. It’s a colorful and playful piece that is pleasing to the eye. Check it out.
