Architonic co-curator on northmodern’s new textile project

Looking towards the next edition of northmodern, the first exciting news in a row of many, is regarding a new textile area. northmodern consultant Signe Nørgaard, owner of Agency Signe Nørgaard, has set up a venture, creating a new and ambitious textile area co curated by none other than Architonic. An approximately 200sqm space, within the Surfaces and Facilities area of northmodern, will feature this special project, which brings a focus on textiles and technologies.

northmodern sees an opportunity to invest in this field, celebrating how the textile category have evolved over the past years. With the conviction that many of the leading and trendsetting design companies spring from the textile and surface field, northmodern has dedicated an area, to not only inspire visitors, but also generate discussions and development on site at the stands. We want to bring more awareness about textiles and technologies to the visitors, in order for them to explore and celebrate the stunning textile components and expressions.


Why Architonic?
Architonic is the number-one community for architects, designers, home-owners and design enthusiasts. 16 million visitors a year choose Architonic as a source of information regarding the very best of contemporary and classic design. northmodern has been continuously strengthening partnerships, into a strong alliance to once again make Copenhagen the platform for design and furniture. Therefore, it is an obvious choice to collaborate with Architonic to ensure the highest possible level of quality and technologies within the chosen exhibitors for this area.


The Launch: Rive Roshan x Kvadrat – at the August 2016 edition of northmodern
northmodern was proud to present a largescale artistic installation in August 2016, marking the launch of this new area – designed by design duo Rive Roshan, the installation featured lengths and lengths of Kvadrat fabrics in a ladder shaped installation suspended from the ceiling.




“northmodern gave us the opportunity to create a large scale hanging installation within the beautiful architecture of the Bella Centre. Through exposure of our installation we made contacts that led to new projects and commissions for the London Design Festival and we were selected by Elle Decoration as one of the top picks of northmodern. Overall the team at northmodern were a pleasure to work with and gave us the freedom and organised facilities needed to make it happen.” Says Golnar Roshan


Rive Roshan is an experimental design studio working on the cusp between graphic, interior and product design. The studio is run by Dutch designers Ruben de la Rive Box and Iranian-Austrian designer Golnar Roshan. The two explore innovative use of materials to design tactile, flexible and engaging products for a mobile generation.
