Kinnarps accent colours

DESIGNS WITH AN IMPACT

We appreciate attractive and inspiring environments. Research shows that design has a great impact on us and how we feel during the working day. So the work environment must be carefully thought out in terms of its function and design. It’s all about the association between well-being, happiness and creativity. Colours and shapes are used to introduce positive added values such as warmth, harmony and well-being.

BE INSPIRED

Our inspiring and unique Kinnarps Colour Studio range gives you everything you could wish for in the way of creative and attractive materials (fabric, leather, laminate, veneer, metal, acrylics, plastic and glass). This sustainable collection with a wide choice of colours and patterns combines classic elegance with the latest trends. Everything you need to find the precise look that suits your environment in an optimal way.

ACCENT COLOURS

You can make use of several appealing accent colours (red, green, orange, blue, spearmint, petrol and golden yellow). With their aid, you can harmonise different colours and materials to create an inviting whole.

COLOURS HAVE AN IMPACT

The colours that surround us during our working hours affect us, our behaviour and our feelings. Many psychologists have studied the significance of colours and have shown that they are perceived in various ways, producing some kind of reaction amongst most people. However, it has not been easy to clarify precisely how colours affect our feelings, as this depends to a certain extent on culture, time and place. But even if there are differing opinions about how colours work their magic, we can agree that they are of great importance and that they often influence us more than we realise.

There are four primary colours that affect us most and which act as an emotional compass, namely green, yellow, red and blue. They are often divided into warm (red, orange and yellow) and cold colours (lilac, blue and green). Their different properties evoke specific feelings in us and contribute to creating particular atmospheres in rooms and other environments. With regard to interiors, it is interesting that a cold colour subjectively increases the size of an area while a warm colour makes it seem smaller. A warm colour also creates a welcoming feeling while a cold colour makes us perceive a cooler space.

Green

Green is a harmonious colour that often symbolises nature and that we associate with health, youth, security and environmental awareness. Green is easiest on the eyes, and is our preferred colour. A green surface creates harmony and tired eyes feel best when resting on green. Possessing both  soothing and refreshing effects, it creates balance. A colour suitable for all spaces.

Yellow

Yellow is a universal solar symbol that we often associate with optimism, joy and energy. It’s a colour that captures our attention and is said to sharpen our memory and thinking, so it’s a good colour to use in a workplace, as yellow is often associated with the intellect. Yellow can also be used to advantage in meeting rooms for creative or brainstorming sessions as it’s a colour that gets people talking.

Red

Red is a colour that quickly gets our attention and makes our hearts beat a little faster. It’s the colour we see first and forget last. Red stands for energy and passion, power and force, but should be used with due moderation in human environments, as it can also induce rage and panic. Care must be taken with the amount of red used, since this colour can easily take over and become dominant in a room. Red is considered to increase the appetite and is often found in restaurants and refectories.

Blue

Blue nuances create feelings of calm, peace and stillness. Blue has a soothing effect and leads one’s thoughts to rest, relaxation and taking a break. It’s a colour that lets us breathe more calmly and blink less often. It is thought that we are more productive in blue rooms because blue evokes a feeling of calm. After all, we can focus more easily when we are relaxed, and that boosts our productivity. So blue can be a good choice in meeting rooms or places designed to hold workshops and generate ideas.

HUES

ORANGE
Just like red, orange is another colour which draws a lot of attention. Orange creates feelings of balance, welcome and warmth. Orange is said to make us more hospitable, alert and cheerful. It also leads our thoughts to warmth, security and food, making it suitable for cooking and eating areas. Orange is also said to promote communication, making it suitable for spaces where we interact with others.

PURPLE
Purple used to be a colour worn by royalty. So it is often associated with an ambiance of wealth and loyalty. Purple is a feminine colour. As it is liked by many children, it often fits well in school environments.

TURQUOISE
Turquoise is felt to be a breezy, cool colour and symbolises freshness and purity. So it is often used in connection with drinks, pools, medical companies and health spas.

PINK
Pink is a calming colour that creates security. It stands for joy and optimism. It is a mild colour, good for rooms with a quiet ambience.

BROWN
Brown is a colour that inspires calm and security, but too many brown tones can produce a feeling of sadness. Brown and beige are calming colours ideally used in environments designed for relaxation or focus. For the best effect, they should be combined and complemented with more cheerful colours.

DID YOU KNOW THIS ABOUT COLOURS?

A person with normal colour vision can differentiate between about ten million different nuances of colour. In contrast, we cannot identify more than about 40,000 specific colours.

The colour blue stands for faithfulness and honesty; 60% of Swedish companies have blue logos and it is also a major global colour.

Chameleons are known for their ability to change colour. They do this with the aid of optical skin cells arranged in layers on top of each other. Each layer creates a different colour.

It is best not to combine black and yellow, as this symbolises danger. For example, in Sweden, these colours are used for high-voltage power lines, on warning signs and to indicate a risk of injury. Compare this with nature’s dangerous animals decked out in black and yellow – leopards, wasps and rattlesnakes.

A rainbow is always a visual delight. It has seven colours. These are, counting from outside in, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

To roll out the red carpet is an expression originating from the film industry. Having celebrities walk on a red carpet when they arrive is a way of expressing luxury and extravagance. Red carpets are regularly used at various events, especially for film professionals and in the hotel industry. The expression to “roll out the red carpet” is also used symbolically in everyday speech.

Azure or azure blue is a colour midway between blue and cyan. The word comes from French and describes the colour of the Mediterranean Sea.

A colour wheel helps you to select and use colours which complement each other. The colour circle below is based on the primary colours (yellow, red and blue) and shows twelve colour nuances and how they relate to each other.

The smart materials of the future

Human beings have been manufacturing a variety of textiles for more than 9,000 years. They have kept families warm, furnished homes and protected furniture and people. Textiles play an indispensible role in our everyday lives and help to make them easier. In the future, however, textiles will do even more for us. Smart textiles will revolutionise our lives. The smart materials of the future are already being developed at Smart Textiles from the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås.

“Smart textiles are really exciting. They also offer greater scope to integrate functions and broaden our design options. The development of these textiles will lead us to creating products offering greater comfort and allow us to communicate with these products in completely new ways. The textiles of the future will improve our everyday lives and open up new possibilities to industry, healthcare and the environment. We believe that the textile industry is moving from being fabric suppliers to becoming a positive force in social development,” says Anna Berglund, project coordinator at Smart Textiles in Borås.

A segment of particular interest to Kinnarps is how colours can be used together with textiles in the future.

“Some pigments change under different conditions in response to heat, moisture and light. Depending on what the material is exposed to, the design changes and people can then respond to its new appearance and function. That’s how things might work in future,” says Anna Berglund.

"The textiles of the future will improve our everyday lives and open up new possibilities to the industry"

The future is here

What about a jacket that changes colour in response to your mood, or a rucksack that varies between thirteen different colours depending on the wind and weather! Smart textiles are now moving into our homes and workplaces…

Products which have already had great success at Selfridges in London have been developed by designer Lauren Bowker, who had previously worked with both Formula 1 teams and Parisian fashion houses. With the Air collection – which comprises everything from wallets to jackets representing the latest fashion statements – Lauren Bowker completely turns our ideas about what can be done with fabrics upside down. All these products are basically black, but they assume new shimmering colours when exposed to external influences. These may be a change in the weather, in air pressure or a sudden rain shower.

“Or depending on who wears the fabric. As we all have different blood circulations and body temperatures, the fabric responds to this by measuring the heat that we give out. For the same reason, a scarf, for instance, acquires a different colour and appearance because part of the fabric is close to the body whereas other parts hang freely,” says Lauren Bowker.

The secret behind this phenomenon is thin ink pigment that Lauren Bowker has developed which is painted over the products. When the pigment reacts with carbon monoxide, different colours are produced. Naturally, it’s quite another question as to how to match one’s outfit…

Interactive furniture

Imagine your office chair talking to you and telling you that you have been sitting too long and it was time to get up. Increased interaction between the material and its user is a key factor in the development of smart textiles. Kinnarps is currently running a truly fascinating project around just this scenario.

“We are carefully following developments and research in smart textiles, so that Kinnarps will be able to use these techniques to create new, attractive and ergonomic interior design solutions. We are currently running a tremendously exciting project together with Smart Textiles in Borås. We are still at the prototype stage, but it’s all about how we can change the appearance of a fabric in response to the body’s heat, for example,” explains Christina Wiklund, colour and materials manager at Kinnarps.

Kinnarps recently visited Smart Textiles in Borås in order to try out ways of printing with a heat-sensitive colour – by no means an easy procedure.

“The printing technique can be done manually or by rotation printing using a template. The heat-sensitive pigment must subsequently be hardened in an oven. The hardening process in particular must be improved before we can test the next step.”

Despite several obstacles along the path, Christina Wiklund is confident about the future of smart textiles within the furniture industry.

“Yes, a fabric that changes colour would allow new and exciting furnishing solutions, certainly from a design perspective, but mostly in terms of its function and applicability. However, the future will show when this can become a reality.”

MATERIALS AND SUSTAINABILITY

Wood, metal, plastic and textiles are the raw materials we use most in our furniture. We impose high requirements on sustainability and use pure raw materials which are developed and produced under environmentally and socially acceptable conditions. We are also certified to ISO 14001.

Read more about  THE BETTER EFFECT!

GLASS

OUR GLASS IS SAFETY AND QUALITY TESTED
We use safety glass to minimise the risk of personal injury in the event of breakage. The glass that goes into our products can also be easily replaced if it is damaged or shattered.

PLASTIC

WE BEGAN MANUFACTURING OUR OWN PADDING IN 2008
We produce our own padding in Skillingaryd, and decided to completely eliminate the isocyanate TDI, which is harmful to health, and to replace it with the less hazardous chemical MDI. Our products are free from PVC plastics and phthalates (with the exception of the plastic parts in electrical components) and our plastic parts are free from PFOS. Our Re:fill material contains only recycled PET plastics together with our own textile waste and Oeko-Tex® labelled fused polyester fibres.

TEXTILES

WE OFFER CERTIFIED TEXTILES WITH EU ECO LABEL AND OEKO-TEX®
We offer several durable and natural materials such as hemp, recycled jute and wool. Wool is also a natural flame retardant. Since the end of the 1990s, we have worked on our fabrics in order to offer sustainable and safe products and to give our workers a healthy work environment. Our range of textiles satisfies the rigorous market requirements with respect to factors such as fire, durability and light fastness.

WOOD

ALL THE WOOD WE BUY IN CONTAINS A HIGH PROPORTION OF CERTIFIED WOOD RAW MATERIAL (FSC, PEFC)
The wood in our products is either FSC-certified or from an origin that we have inspected. We aim to make all our wood FSC-certified by 2020. The surface treatment of our wood products is strictly regulated in order to minimise its environmental impact. Kinnarps is a member of the Global Forest and Trade Network (GFTN), the WWF’s corporate network for responsible forestry.

METAL

PROPORTION OF RECYCLED CAST ALUMINIUM = 60-90%
We use recycled metal as far as possible in our frames and underframes. For the surface treatment of metals, we principally choose powder coating with a low environmental impact. It is carried out in an enclosed facility so that no substances can leak out into the atmosphere. We insist that metals should not be mixed in order to facilitate their recycling.

THE BETTER EFFECT

TOWARDS A HEALTHY WORK ENVIRONMENT
In order to feel well, it is important to have a healthy work environment characterised by pure materials. That’s why we always try to apply the principle of caution and eliminate unnecessary chemicals. Thus we have developed a new UV coating method that reduces the use of solvents. We have also replaced chemical flame retardants in polyester fabrics whose fibre structure offers natural flame protection. And we insist that all products containing electronics have a CE label and their suppliers observe the EU’s RoHS directive which prohibits the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium as well as the flame retardants PBB and PBDE in electronic products.

CARE & MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS

Our furniture is designed to withstand everyday wear and tear. But, there is still reason to take care when cleaning the workspace. If you follow our simple but effective care recommendations, you will be able to enjoy your Kinnarps furniture for even longer.

Environmental labelling

NF Environment

The only official environmental label for furniture in France. Covers product requirements in respect of quality and environment, and producer environmental requirements. The environmental requirements for NF Environnement are based on life cycle analysis, just as many other environmental labels. Consideration is given to raw material extraction, the transportation process, the manufacturing process and how the product can be recycled. The full list of marked furniture is available on request from Kinnarps or NF Environnement 's website.

Fsc®

A global standard for responsible forestry. This means environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests. The label also sets demands for traceability in the supply chain, and that each link in the chain must be certified. Kinnarps was part of developing the first forest standard for FSC in Sweden and we are continuing to be a part of the development of it. The full list of marked products is available on request from Kinnarps.

Möbelfakta

Swedish furniture labelling that has a clear focus on sustainability. It covers product requirements within the areas of quality, environment and supplier requirements for social responsibility. Kinnarps has chosen to focus on Möbelfakta for the Swedish market, a choice based on the fact that Möbelfakta covers quality, environment and social responsibility, which is completely in line with Kinnarps sustainability work. The total list of certified products are available on request from Kinnarps or on the Möbelfakta web: www.mobelfakta.se

GS (GEPRÜFT SICHERHEIT)

A German quality label for furniture that covers European legal requirements in respect of safety and, in certain cases, imposes more stringent requirements than those dictated by law. The GS label is highly appreciated by consumers and manufacturers in Germany, but it also has high reputation in the rest of Europe. The label indicates that the product complies with European standards and specific authority demands made by the ZLS. It also includes some environmental requirements on the materials. The full list of marked furniture is available on request from Kinnarps.

EU Ecolabel

The EU Ecolabel is EU's official eco-label for products and services. The criteria for fabrics cover product requirements for quality and environment and producer demands on the environment. Kinnarps has a large assortment of fabrics in the standard range that are marked with the EU Ecolabel. Here you can see which fabrics are labelled.

Oeko-tex®

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is a global labelling for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of processing. The target is to assure that the products don’t contain any hazardous substances and as a whole the demands are stricter than national regulations. Here you can see which fabrics are labelled.

Soft materials

Textiles

Vacuum cleaning with a soft nozzle is normally sufficient for cleaning fabrics. Stains should always be removed as quickly as possible. In most cases it is enough to wipe with a damp cloth, but for of more persistent stains you can use a pH-neutral detergent or a foam cleaner for professional use. Always use white cloths and avoid excessively dampening a wool fabric, as there is then a risk of permanent stains. If necessary, a foam cleaner can also be used for more thorough cleaning if this is allowed in the fabric's washing instructions. Removable fabrics may either be washed in water or dry cleaned, according to the washing instructions for each fabric.

Semi-aniline leather (OnStage!)

This kind of upholstery leather is mostly aniline dyed and then pigmented which means that it is equipped with a covering and saving colour application. The surface may be plain (without any natural grain) or embossed – depending on the quality and the leather finish.

Care instructions
Dust regularly, clean of dry dirt from time to time, treat it occasionally with special care lotions (but not too often) but avoid strong rubbing.

  • Dust: dust with a soft cloth
  • Dried dirt: wipe the furniture with a damp cloth. After that, dry with a woollen cloth. Then let it dry a while and afterward, treat it with thin applied leather care products.
  • Fluids: Soak them immediately with an absorbing cloth. Do not rub!
  • Food / oil: please remove immediately. Follow-up treatment like dried dirt.


Aniline leather (DeLuxe)

Aniline colours penetrate the skin deeply through the pores but without changing or covering the surface of the hide. The various structures of each hide remain untouched and also colour variations within one hide are unavoidable. All natural remarks like fat wrinkles, bug bites, skin injuries and more remain visible and underline the value of the leather. It is nothing to complain about but a remark of genuine leather.

Care instructions
Aniline leather does not bear to sunlight, Please protect your furniture of direct treatment. Dust regularly with a soft cloth, occasionally treating with special leather care products (but not too often) – please avoid strong rubbing.

  • Dust: remove with a soft cloth
  • Dried dirt: Please dissolve some mild detergent or hard soap in lukewarm water. Moisten a soft cloth, wrap it well and wipe the stain extensively. Dry with a woollen cloth. Then let it dry for a certain time. Finally treat it with thin applied leather care products.
  • Fluids: Soak them immediately with an absorbing cloth. Do not rub!
  • Food / oil: Please treat it like dried dirt. Should you still see the stain, please do not do anything more, the leather will absorb the stain slowly.

Hard materials

Everyday cleaning: wipe the surface with a soft, dry cloth. Heavy duty cleaning: wipe the surface with a soft, slightly dampened cloth. A mild cleansing agent may be used. To remove stains, use a non-abrasive cleaning agent.

Wood

This is a living material whose grain's pattern, colour tone and lustre vary naturally to begin with. Light from light fixtures and sunshine hasa certain effect on the colour and lightness of the wood surface. Objects that are not moved around on a table top, for example, may therefore cause permanent deviations in colour and lightness in the wood surface. Warning! Avoid using excessive amounts of water and strong cleaning agents.

Laminate

Everyday cleaning: wipe the surface with a soft, dry cloth. Heavy duty cleaning: wipe the surface with a soft cloth with ammonia (windowcleaner) to avoid marks after drying. To remove stains, use a non-abrasive cleaning agent.

Metal

Everyday cleaning of lacquered surfaces: wipe with a slightly dampened cloth and a mild cleaning agent. Everyday cleaning of textured lacquered surfaces: wipe with a slightly dampened lint-free cloth and a mild cleaning agent. Warning! Alcohol is the strongest agent that may be used on a heavily soiled surface if the lacquer is not to lose its sheen.

Plastic

Everyday cleaning: non-solvent, non-abrasive cleaning agent.

Quality-guaranteed durability

Our range only includes fabrics that meet those European standards that we feel that you, as a customer, have the right to demand. The test results describe the most important properties of the material in different respects and thereby give you the opportunity to compare the different qualities.

Lightfastness, textiles

Lightfastness is a testing method that tests how fabric is faded by light, mainly sunlight. The fabric is exposed to controlled lighting in a laboratory for a certain period, after which the change in colour is assessed against a nonexposed sample. Lightfastness is normally lower for lighter colours than for darker ones. The scale used to indicate the result has eight logarithmic steps, which means that one step upwards gives twice as good a measure of lightfastness. Step 8 represents the best value. Our minimum demand on lightfastness is a value of 5.

Durability, textiles

The Martindale test entails the fabric being rubbed against a specific wool fabric with a certain movement and load. The fabric is observed for threads breaking, and the test, which is considered a measure of the longevity of the fabric, is then discontinued. Our minimum demand on durability is 50,000 turns Martindale, which is considered very high. In many contexts, 35,000 turns are considered sufficient for public environments.

Flammability, textiles

The propensity of a fabric to catch fire can be tested in several different ways. The current European standards EN 1021-1 and 2 test a miniature sofa. EN 1021-1 entails ignition with a cigarette and EN 1021-2 ignition with a simulated match, and the fabric is to withstand catching fire for a certain period. All standard fabrics in our assortment meet the requirements of EN 1021-1 and 2. There are also several national standards with varying requirements against which selected fabrics in our assortment have been tested. Among these are the British BS 5852 crib 5, the German DIN 4102 and the French NFP standards. All of these place higher requirements than EN 1021-1 and 2.
