Cool Designs for Hallingdal 65

Hallingdal 65 is an iconic textile from European manufacturer Kvadrat.  It’s famous for durability and rich color palette, as well as being a familiar fixture in public spaces, hospitals, schools and homes. In celebration of Hallingdal 65’s longevity, 32 emerging design talents from the UK, Europe, US, Scandinavia and Asia were selected to create entirely new works using the textile. Being a fabric which holds many associations for many people, it is great to see Hallingdal 65 in such a great selection of new ideas.
