Divina Melange 3 is a vibrant piece-dyed woollen upholstery textile reminiscent of felt. Cheerfully simple, it comes in a fresh, versatile palette by artist and designer Finn Sködt.
Compact, comfortable and extremely smooth, Divina Melange 3 expresses colours and the shape of furniture particularly well. It is constructed by weaving the yarn in a simple binding after which it is subjected to pressure and high temperatures. This milling process, which is often associated with fine tailoring, transforms the material from coarse to a soft and uniform, felt-like surface.
Produced by piece-dyeing a dark or light grey melange, the textile’s colour palette perfectly reflects Finn Sködt’s pure aesthetic. The new colour scale combines signature nuances, such as hot pink, forest green and Finn Sködt’s favourite ultramarine, together with chalky notes and neutral shades. These are meticulously picked from the designer’s extensive colour library of hand-painted samples, documenting the colours that he has used in his paintings for decades.
About the design:
Designed in 1962 for the exhibition at the Poznan Furniture Fair, as an answer to the functional challenges of the panel construction at the time, the 1378 set has never been produced since then.
The armchair and coffee table were revived by POLITURA in 2016 because they are more modern than ever before.
The unique shape of the wooden frame in connection with the unusual wood grain makes the armchair R1378 unique. Available with high-quality wool fabrics from kvadrat and fine oak or ash.
The coffee table was awarded the Must Have Award - for its simple elegance and pure functionality. The adjustable tray makes it easy to organize magazines, laptops, cell phones and writing utensils.
