Graphic fabric: The Divina calendar

Published:  May 6, 2014

In another print-project-of-desire from Graphic Thought Facility for 2014, their presentation at the 2014 Salone Internazionale del Mobile for textile manufacturer Kvadrat celebrated one of their most iconic textiles – Divina – as a perpetual calendar.

Kvadrat asked twenty-two international designers to reinterpret the fabric in the context of contemporary design and create a one-off piece. GTF’s calendar drew upon many of Divina’s qualities, showcasing the broad range of colours, using the weight of its drape in hanging, and utilising its milled surface that allows it to be cut without fraying.

Each day the top sheet is removed, and the system of holes that define the numerals allows the viewer to glimpse the layers to follow, revealing a pattern of colour and complementary combinations that change daily.
