Arkiv 4


Archive 4 has its origins in a coat fabric first produced in 1959. In 2012, the German designer Christiane Müller found a fabric sample during a treasure hunt in an archive in the attic of one of the old factory buildings. The fabric has been reconstructed as a durable furniture fabric and the colors have been modernized by one of Norway's foremost interior designers, Anemone Wille Våge.

The rich texture of the textile comes into its own when several unique yarns are twisted together. Combined with exciting colours, the textile highlights any piece of furniture it is drawn on. Arkiv 4 has a high proportion of wool, which makes the textile naturally fire retardant and very durable.
