Ekko Throw Blanket
Effervescent, Harmonic Repetitions
In the design process, the Norwegian design team of Günzler.Polmar has experimented with composition and repetition, utilizing the weaving technique to add character to the throw blanket. They have used the traditional technique of jacquard weaving combined with a contemporary graphic pattern, uniting the best from both worlds in a design with an exciting yet harmonic look.
Günzler.Polmar elaborates on this: ”We created Ekko's design by experimenting with repetition and pattern-building. We set about the task as though we were going to create a picture or a painting. Our aim was to achieve balance and harmony in the motif, but it also had to be exciting and dynamic to look at.”Design: Günzler.Polmar
“We are fascinated by the potential design has of making an impact on people’s everyday lives. To us it is not a question of function or aesthetics. We believe that both elements must be present to create a god design. The aesthetic of a product can also be a function in a way. The things we surround ourselves and the way they are designed influence our daily lives. Functional items can make things simpler while aesthetically pleasing things can help increase our sense of quality of life”.
