Panorama, Diorama and Suite by Margrethe Odgaard

Panorama, Diorama and Suite are elegant satin-woven curtains designed by Margrethe Odgaard. They explore the relationship between stripes, colours and bindings in an intriguing, individual way.

Each side of the curtains offers a polarised mirror of the other. On one side, the weave has a subtle lustre; on the other, a more matte expression. Consequently, the designs are equally elegant and surprising whether seen from indoors or outdoors.

Margrethe Odgaard looked to classic architecture when creating the patterns for Panorama, Diorama and Suite. Specifically, she was inspired by wainscoting, which is wooden panelling installed on walls for functional and sometimes also decorative reasons.

Margrethe Odgaard: “When creating the collection, I did a lot of research into traditional interior architecture. During the baroque period in the 1700s, for instance, it was common to divide walls with profiled timber 1/3 from the floor and up. In contrast, French Modernism was characterised by extending the ceiling 1/3 down the wall. Depending on where the dividing line is set, it influences a person’s own reflection within a space and can be used to make a room look larger.”

Suitable for contract environments and private spaces, Panorama, Diorama and Suite share a number of colours and work particularly well together. The palettes for the curtains incorporate rich natural colours, as well as highlight tones.
