Tekla continues to explore the colours of Le Corbusier with their limited-edition collection of seven blankets divided into two typologies: checked blankets in tonal colorways made from a soft cashmere and lambswool-blend, finished with whipstitching; vibrant, striped blankets are made from 100% lambswool, finished with a fringed edge. All blankets are woven from the finest fibres by artisans in Scotland and lightly brushed for extra softness before being pressed to create a smooth finish with lustre. Each blanket is signed with a unique number as part of the limited collection.
This part of Tekla’s limited-edition collection takes inspiration from Le Corbusier’s contrasts and contradictions, using the textiles, bold artworks and bright walls of his Villa “Le Lac” as a starting point for the design. Inspired by his ‘objets trouvé’, which Le Corbusier picked up during his travels, Tekla created a collection of blankets that feel unexpected.
The colors for this collection take inspiration from the architect’s Architectural Polychromy, comprising 63 colour shades created across two palettes in 1931 and 1951. Using these colors as accents on building facades and interiors to create dynamic and emotional effects, Le Corbusier noted that "colours affect our emotions and have a substantial impact on our mood." Much like Le Corbusier, colour and its ability to change a space’s impression is at the heart of Tekla.
