Recycled wool, rich vibrant colours and original weaves

Made from 45% recycled wool, we present Re-wool – a sustainable upholstery by Margrethe Odgaard made partly by scraps from our own production. Continuing our longstanding collaboration with Giulio Ridolfo, we premiere the new screen textile Hint, as well as Glow, a rich, vibrant upholstery featuring an original weave by Frans Dijkmeier coloured by Ridolfo.

A graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, Margrethe Odgaard also studied at the Rhode Island School of Design in the USA. Before setting up her studio, she worked for several years as a textile designer at French fashion company EPICE. This followed a spell as a printing assistant at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia.
