Odal is an innovative duo-coloured fabric where the contrast in colour enhances the three dimensionality of the fabric, complementing the pattern. The fabric has strong tactile qualities through a combination of rough surface and the sober and graphic expression of the pattern. Only available for delivery to Norwegian addresses.

In 2003, the quality Odal was awarded the Honorary Award and the "Mark for Good Design".

The Norwegian Design Council's jury statement:

Møbelgruppen Hal with the specially designed furniture fabric Odal is a brave and forward-looking venture within the Norwegian furniture industry. A successful triangular collaboration between an established furniture manufacturer, a traditional furniture fabric manufacturer and young furniture designers has resulted in a fresh and innovative product. The expertise of the various actors has raised the final product and given the furniture a clear visual and textile identity. The furniture is simple, monumental and distinctive with a clear and clean form. Both the chair and the sofa have a strong identity, and are neutral and cheeky at the same time. The furniture manufacturer is stretching far in terms of form towards a renewal of its profile. The two-tone fabrics are particularly successful because the contrasting color highlights the fabric's three-dimensionality and gives the full effect of the pattern. The fabric has a high tactile quality through its combination of roughness in the surface and the sober, graphic expression of the pattern. The upholstery work is convincingly well done.
