nya nordiska x Bodo Sperlein

For the spring collection 2020, five exclusive fabric innovations were created

in cooperation with the multiple award-winning London product designer

Bodo Sperlein. Blast, Blitz, Boom, Balbo CS and Boja CS have their creative

roots in Vorticism, a specifically English contribution to Modernism

and combine natural inspiration with elements of Cubism.

For Blast, a Cubist motif was interpreted in a contemporary way as a generous jacquard

pattern on a fine cotton thread quality.  Blitz is a drapery fabric which displays cubic

forms strung together like collages to form an all-over pattern.  Boom uses

this pattern as a print design on recycled wool, which is suitable for both

decoration and upholstery.

 

The semi-transparent drapery fabrics Balbo and Boja signal their suitability for the contract sector

by the addition of CS: Balbo CS shows a design reminiscent of raindrops with a hatched effect,

Boja CS displays a net structure that stretches coral-like over the feather-light base fabric.

»nya nordiska’s design commission for the 2020 fabric collection enabled me

to bring my my textile fantasies to life morphing natural inspiration with

elements of Cubism. My designs explore fascinating combinations that can

expressively influence interiors and correspond perfectly with nya nordiska’s

signature design language.«

    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.

    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.
