26 stunning colours
Christianshavn is presented in a palette of 26 beautiful colours – from the classic tone-on-tone to the bolder, brighter shades. The palette journeys through three colour genres: calm pastels, blue-grey tones and bright colours. Some colours are unicolour – perfect for the simple, elegant expression that enhances the shape of a design – and some are melange, where triple threading offers both a playful appearance and a fresh look, even after years of usage.
With Christianshavn Fritz Hansen is proud to have created a wool textile with a soft touch.
The upholstery collection of Christianshavn is produced in a combination of 85% wool & 15% nylon with a Martindale of 100.000 yet with a non-wool handle and a soft brushed finish. Christianshavn is offered in 26 different colours of died yarn with a combination of melange and unicoloured upholsteries and can be used on all upholstered products in our portfolio.
Fritz Hansen has a significant history of working with wool which dates back to the workshop in Christianshavn. The complex craftsmanship found in some of the most iconic lounge chairs demands the use of high-quality materials along with meticulous upholstery skills. With Christianshavn, both strength and density are keywords and the mix of wool and nylon offers a soft touch rather than the traditional roughness that characterises hardwearing wool.
