Borås Tapeter launches Arne Jacobsen

Bringing nature and colour into the home is a trend that is currently expressed in many different industrial design products. A couple of colourful examples from Borås Tapeter are Rabarber and Vertigo.

Sissa Sundling, Head of Design at Borås Tapeter, explains: “The patterns in the Scandinavian Designers II collection are timeless classics, some created as early as the 1940s. They serve as an elegant complement to our minimalist and simple Scandinavian furnishing style. Classic innovation has never been more relevant”.

Rabarber by the sisters Gocken & Lisbet Jobs show the Jobs sisters’ colourful, hand
printed textiles which made perfect complements to the wave of strict and functional expressions that became a trademark in the 50s. Also Vertigo by Arne Jacobsen represents a countertrend – and rebellion. The story goes, that Arne Jacobsen’s father was against his son’s wish of pursuing an artistic career. The Vertigo pattern represents a clearly artistic endeavour from the world famous Danish architect and designer of furniture, textiles and cutlery.

Scandinavian Designers II, available from 15th of June, is the sequel to the Wallpapers by Scandinavian Designers collection, which was launched by Borås Tapeter almost four years ago.
