The virgin wool has been used for the coloured thread while the recycled wool, which is sourced from UK yarn spinner Wooltex, is dyed in darker tones to create a dynamic depth.
Sigvardt conceived the idea of Sabi when renovating her own home, in which she became interested in layering colours and textures.
“I have worked with colours and combinations that emerge when you peel the layers of what you immediately see, both literally and figuratively,” explained Sigvardt.
To encapsulate the meeting point between past and present, Sabi uses a rich palette of vivid colourways that blend contemporary colours with shades typical in the 1970s and 1980s.
The combination of these colours gives Sabi its visual depth and creates a multidimensional effect.
“As you move towards the textile, it reveals different levels until, finally, individual colours emerge,” explained Kvadrat.
Colourways included in the collection range from Mellow Butter, Acid Green and Camel Brown to Sour Lavender and Prima Magenta.
Sabi forms part of Kvadrat’s 2021 Fall collection, which features a series of textiles that embody the brand’s values of visionary design, colour accuracy, engineering excellence and functional performance.
