Sigge by Fanny Aronsen and Sigurd Falk

Earlier this month renowned Swedish fabric designer Fanny Aronsen launched Sigge, a vibrant fabric co-designed with young Swedish designer Sigurd Falk. The design is a contemporary, reversible upholstery textile with a flowing hand-drawn motif based on a pen on paper drawing which is described by Fanny Aronsen Studio as "sophisticated street art".

Interior brand Kvadrat paid tribute to Fanny's work in a statement on their website: "Fanny Aronsen designed all her own fabrics, putting strong emphasis on quality development of natural materials and the manufacturing process. Her visual trademark was luxurious tactile fabrics with intriguing textures and sumptuous colours. Her attention to detail, craftsmanship and the technicality of her designs made a strong textile mark on the interior world. She will be greatly missed by all of us."
