Tonus Meadow is an evolution of the classic Tonus fabric, which was created by textile artist Nina Koppel in the 1960’s. It is characterised by its two different expressions and intriguing colour richness.
Both versions of piece-dyed Tonus Meadow are constructed using two different mélange yarns – one has a ‘warm’ tone, the other a ‘cold’ hue. Woven from an elastic combination of 90% wool and 10% Helanca, the textile is, like Tonus, ideal for organic furniture.
The two expressions of Tonus Meadow are created using the same pairs of colours. One has a mélange surface, the other a mélange grid-like structure, which is achieved by inserting a unicolored yarn.
Based on Nina Koppel’s original colour archive, the colour scale for Tonus Meadow combines neutral, natural tones, such as grey, with bright highlight colours like deep red. These nuances are coordinated with the Tonus palette and consequently, the textiles complement each other well.
