“We are living in a time when we need to be more expressive and open emotionally and maybe even allow ourselves to be dreamy. We believe that people are ready to be more individual and make spaces that reflect their personalities and their lives. This collection encourages the eye and the mind to wander.”
— Design Director Anna Vilhelmine Ebbesen
Attuned to the senses and emotions, Evoke sets the stage for the home as a fusion of beauty and personality. A home like a personal memoir inscribed in textures, tones and imagery. Atmospheric and individual, suggestive and reflective, dynamic and playful.
Inspired by organic forms in nature, shadows and spectral visions, murals by Jean Cocteau, the sculptures of Constantin Brancusi and abstract art, the collection of upholstery and draperies is layered and artisanal, with characteristics that explore light and volume. Cohesive and eclectic, the Evoke collection has a creative tension derived from perceived imperfections and seemingly incongruous yet harmonious combinations of colour and texture.
Aligned with Sahco’s heritage, Evoke is rich with classic references and enlivened by a more intuitive contemporary expression. The seven drapery and four upholstery fabrics demonstrate high levels of craft, the result of applying new techniques to create lively tactile surfaces, powdery dry or glossy chintz finishes, and artistic printed or embroidered abstracted outlines.
Corallium, a playful sheer with a subtle sparkle from lurex bouclé yarn, has an organic scribble pattern on a floaty sheer organza base while Nympha is a digital print on canvas that shows the hand of the artist with visible brush strokes and naïve renditions of flora and fauna. Mirari is a jacquard weave that looks embroidered and brings to mind dreamy Japanese forests while another woven jacquard, Murale, features a figurative artwork reminiscent of Cocteau with a dramatic 3-metre repeat that plays with scale and abstraction. Elle, a spun bouclé blend, drapes and curves around furniture like an elegant designer coat.
The overall colour palette is elevated by adding fresh hues like lemon grass, pistachio green and Sakura pink and earthy base notes such as golden olive, moss green and rust red. Designer Vincent Van Duysen coloured the upholstery textile Clifford, a classic Houndstooth pattern dissolved and re-imagined in his signature muted tones with subtle contrasts of brown grey, olive cream and burgundy rose
