COLLECTION 2020 – »LAGOM«
“Lagom” is a Swedish term describing that happy medium between
“too much” and “too little” – that desirable state of living in perfect
balance. Striving for this attitude to life was also decisive in the
development of the 2020 nya nordiska collection: high-quality,
harmoniously coordinated textiles that can strike this balance in
NATURALNESS IN THE MOST GORGEOUS NORTHERN LIGHTS
Our new collection pays tribute to the naturalness, lifestyle and
clarity of the North. Wool, linen and cotton caress the eyes and
fingertips,organic textures convey a sense of craftsmanship
and fluffy surfaces make for well-being. And yet each fabric
keeps the ideal measure of things: between exclusivity and
fitness for everyday use, as a highlight and basic, eye-catcher
and team player – »lagom« in every aspect.
NYA NORDISKA X BODO SPERLEIN
Modern design, natural fibres and distinct textures are part of
nya nordiska’s inimitable signature style. For the 2020 collection
five exclusive fabric innovations were developed in cooperation
with the multiple-award winning London industrial designer
Bodo Sperlein: Blast, Blitz, Boom, Balbo CS and Boja CS cover a
spectrum that turns floor plans into inspiring living spaces; fabrics
that exude that genuine natural feel that is »lagom« because they
neither understate nor overdo things but find the ideal measure of things.
Typically nya nordiska.
The »pearl« among the lightweight drapery fabrics. Two natural fibres unite here to create an effective lightweight look. This fabric injects colour into the interior without it becoming visually overbearing. To achieve this coloured cotton threads run across Alma’s delicate, plain-coloured, linen ground weave that look like strings of beads thanks to their regular array. As a young, contemporary take on the classic bouclé effect, this fluffy yarn brings sophisticated three-dimensionality into modern living room designs.
To the point. These organic-looking dot elements were conceived by Bodo Sperlein and have their origin in the designer’s own handprint. A reference to nature and craftsmanship is also exuded by the textile interpretation of the motif. The dotting in this semi-transparent drapery fabric looks crosshatched and is as individual in its outline as its natural prototype. In five soft non-colours, this Trevira CS fabric adds a finely measured touch of exuberance in the contract sector.
Natural. Bjarne immediately conveys the quality of its fibre blend: linen and cotton enter into a convincing alliance here for this classy natural fabric. With its dry, grainy texture and heavy, casual drape the canvas is ideal for draperies in a casual chic style whilst also serving as a lightweight upholstery fabric. With its natural fibres the range of 40 colours takes on a powdery, fragmented effect with a cosy comfort factor.
The elementary art of interiors. This expressive, large-format design care of Bodo Sperlein has its creative roots in Vorticism, a specifically English contribution to Modernism. Parallel to Cubism, this art form emerged in the early 20th century. Bodo Sperlein has now reinterpreted it for our millennium. As a generous jacquard pattern on a very fine thread cotton base, Blast’s Vorticist Cubist motif reveals its graphic effect in situ convincing us as a flambuoyant eyecatcher.
A flash of textile brilliance. In the same fabric quality as Blast, Bodo Sperlein’s Blitz also displays cubic forms strung together like collages to form an all-over pattern. The jagged shape of its blitz-like lightening radiates sheer energy looking almost like stylised graffiti. Its two colours in three soft colour combinations give the sizable jacquard made of fine-threaded cotton an optical presence without overemphasising the pattern.
A filigree net-work. Bodo Sperlein also holds the creative threads in his hands in this print design that uses nya nordiska’s popular, semi-transparent, top-quality Soufflé CS Uni as its base. Here these threads are linked to form a modern, net-like structure extending, almost coral-like, over the light-as-a-feather base fabric. The natural feel of this wafer-thin drapery product made of Trevira CS makes it ideal for adorning even large window features on commercial premises. With its versatile and vital appearance this creates a natural atmosphere. In a choice of four colours.
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.
A delight to the touch. This heavy upholstery fabric with its fluffy texture cries out to be caressed. Natural fibres with an inherently irregular surface texture make for cosy interiors catering to the trend towards traditional craftsmanship. Four tones along with a bouclé texture create a lovely refraction of the light. And in functionality terms Henry is a real highlight too: it is temperature regulating thereby improving indoor climate. A fabric care of nya nordiska that quite literally allows you to “grasp” the quality.
Everybody’s darling. This easy-care, slightly crushed drapery fabric is one of the absolute favourites in the nya nordiska range. For the new collection this has seen an upgrade in a more matt finish and 20 topical colour tones. This is combined with the fabric’s familiar feel and supple drape in a contemporary 2.0 quality. A colour scheme of delicate off tones through to bold trend colours makes Lia 2.0 an ideal choice for interiors of any style – solo or in an effective mix & match.
Casual soft chic. This room-height drapery fabric in a trendy bouclé look combines stone and sand tones with very good care properties. Variations with black warp fibres underline the textured weave giving the fabric a high-quality handcrafted feel. With its fluffy texture Malva exudes cosy comfort with a positive effect on room acoustics. This means the versatile fabric has a pleasant calming effect and forms a textile basis for relaxed living.
Wool, light. Melino combines the fluffy look and soft feel of a high percentage wool admixture with the unfussy and robust nature of synthetic fibres. Making this room-height drapery fabric an attractive, versatile allrounder for interiors. With a filigree, delicately roughened texture it underlines its natural appeal without losing any of its lightness. Melino is equally convincing both as a solo fabric and as a harmonious, drapery-fabric counterpart to the upholstery fabric Henry.
Woollen feeling for interiors. Sensa CS effortlessly takes the textile sensuality of the private sphere into the public space. The semi-transparent drapery fabric achieves this by combining a very natural look and feel with the required flame retardant properties. Its wool-like texture gives it a soft feel and flowing drape. In five attractive off tones, it opens up a wide range of timeless options – for hotels and restaurants to offices, surgeries, kindergartens and retirement homes.
Fresh colours for both day and night. This fine cotton satin in its proven quality is now presented in topical colours. Ten new trend tones and mid-shades supplement the favourites in the existing colourway to form an inspiring palette. 300 cm wide and with a pleasantly supple feel Zero 2.0 is as suited as a lightweight basic to interior decoration and as it is to skin-friendly bedlinen. Here is it convincing both as a solo option and as a lining in a textile interplay with other fabrics.
