Press kit - Press release - Nanna - François Mangeol

Nanna

Paris, France

François Mangeol


Milan, Italy, 2012-05-23 - Hallingdal was designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1965. Since when it has become as famous for its durability as for its rich colour palette. Today more than forty-five years later it remains one of Kvadrat’s best-selling products and has earned its place as a design classic. A familiar fixture in public spaces, hospitals, schools and homes, Hallingdal 65 is a textile that holds many associations for many people.

Much of Hallingdal’s endurance of course has to do with its physical properties. However, it is the flexibility of this textile that gives it its real staying power because it is the designers and architects who choose it for their works who enable its capacity for continuous reinvention.

In a celebration of Hallingdal 65’s longevity, at a time when that quality seems rarer than ever, Kvadrat has invited a new generation of designers to create entirely new works using the textile and explore new applications for the fabric.

French designer François Mangeol designed a new upholstered bench by way of a tribute to Nanna Ditzel, the designer of Hallingdal textile.

Called
Nanna, the bench exploits the material’s properties and extensive colour range, and could be constructed in any combination of colours, as well as at varying lengths and sizes. A thick, comfortable padded seat is made simply using a dovetailing process in which all the pieces of fabric are folded and stacked one to one.

Biography

French designer François Mangeol has a style, which can be described as ‘conceptual’. Naturally curious, he pursues the ideal of ‘creativity without limits’, whilst keeping a ‘closed link’ with the materials he is working with. His diverse output reflects that he find his inspiration in many different areas of life, such as mathematics, poetry and drawings. His portfolio includes art installations, interior design, product design and graphic design.
