Milano Design Week 2023
Many thanks to all visitors during the Milano Design Week 2023. It was a great pleasure for us to meet you in person and being able to present our collections to you in Milan.
Our fabrics were staged in a fantastic way, especially in the ex.t showroom, which has been completely redesigned by design studio Sans Nom under the motto “ex.t Icons”. And as part of the Illuminata exhibition concept curated by Bodo Sperlein and Francesca Ballini.

Partition walls made of nya nordiska fabrics were used to divide the ex.t showroom in via Tortona into niches in which iconic pieces were presented that have made ex.t distinguished and identifiable over the years.
Illuminata transformed the Cristiana Protestante church in the heart of Brera into a spectacular display, a way of creative enlightenment through timelessly beautiful designs.

The focus was on a variety of the latest designs by London-based designer Bodo Sperlein, such as the architectural Mayu armchair, upholstered in our wonderful Charlie bouclé wool fabric.
With the geometric pattern of our Boom upholstery fabric made from recycled wool, the Cipria cocoon armchair by the Italian furniture label Softhouse was another eye-catcher at this event.

Airy, semi-transparent linen weave in a width of 320 cm. Alabama has a natural appearance but does not seem rustic at all. A soft finish which persists after washing gives this fabric a wonderfully caressing feel. Alabama can be easily combined, is ideal for light decorations and also suits well for panels and table linen. The shrinkage of 2% is moderate.
Woollen and sustainable. The Bodo Sperlein edition for nya nordiska is rounded off by Boom, an innovative upholstery fabric that can also serve as a heavy drapery. The print design on recycled wool combines the look and feel of its natural material with a sense of sustainability. Combined with a synthetic fibre component, this drapery and upholstery fabric boasts exceptional durability. Its graphic design corresponds to that of Blitz and can be made up without pattern repeats.
Go ahead and touch! Anyone taking up this invitation is doomed to be addicted to Charlie. The elegant wool bouclé is a tribute to the senses, in fabric form. It suits modern interiors just as well as elegant furniture classics combining appealing touch and cosiness with rugged wear properties. Boasting a modern colour range comprising eight high-profile solid tones this abrasion-resistant drapery and upholstery fabric is the bouclé It-Piece for interiors.
Oscuro FR 2.0€0,00
The nicest way to shut the light out. This flame-retardant drapery fabric with its especially soft touch achieves a 99.9% degree of darkening. Making it possible to create a relaxed atmosphere where light and noise are sustainably reduced. With its modern array of colours this fabric suited to both residential and commercial uses sets attractive accents: in 18 topical trend tones and mid-hues Oscuro FR 2.0 can be used in a variety of ways, alone or as a lining fabric, in conjunction with the current collection.
Rubino 2.0 – the name says it all – as red tones like burgundy, ruby or fire are now gaining importance again in interior design. Complemented by fresh nuances from the blue-green scale, discreet natural tones and elegant non-colours this 140 cm wide drapery and upholstery fabric can be used universally. Its combination of soft, velvety feel and everyday durability qualifies it for numerous design situations: solo, in an exciting mix & match with patterned fabrics from the collection or in a velvety interplay with Cord 2.0.
