to enhance and better express the personality of her ‘beau fixe’ seating for ligne roset, inga sempé has designed ‘sibelius’ — a special fabric with a simple graphic pattern that can also be used across the french company’s line of sofas. the motif will be presented on a selection of ‘beau fixe’ seating pieces at maison&objet 2016 in paris.

 

inga sempé on the concept behind the ‘sibelius’ motif:to contrast with the calmness of the beau fixe collection, I wanted to associate a fabric which would bring liveliness and meticulousness. responding to seating composed of straight lines linked by curves in drops or arcs, the motif is a set of intercalated dots and dashes, sometimes linked, in an irregular rhythm. from a distance, one believes that it is a weave of thick threads, like a tweed, even though it is simply printed onto cloth. it is not at all figurative, but one could see morse code or braille in it, or even stylized representations of grains on a stalk or trees on a roadway. the detail in the motif enables it to be printed in bright colours which still remain understated.’
