Founded 55 years ago, the international textile editeur NYA NORDISKA has continually pursued its aesthetic philosophy of minimalism, in addition to using textiles as a means to invoke a sense of wellbeing in an architectural landscape.
Textiles are currently celebrating a wonderful comeback in modern architecture. The current desire for more materiality and sensuality is continuously increasing, with materials themselves becoming a space-forming element. (text by Detail)
With our video team we visited the German textile company Nya Nordiska at Design Post during this year’s Orgatec. Remo Röntgen was so kind to tell us more about the family-run business and showed us some of the sophisticated Nya Nordiska creations. Enjoy!

The German textile manufacturer Nya Nordiska recently inaugurated the new extension of the company building in the historical center of Dannenberg, a small city in Northern Germany. It was a challenge to the architects of the Berlin based practice Volker Staab Architekten to align this highly functional building to the scale of the old town which is especially characterised by rather small stud work houses.
This year the German textile manufacturer Nya Nordiska presented a range of new sophisticated textiles.
‘Network’ is made of gold or silver printed linen ribbons fixed by fine black cords in a classic raschel knit. The cords of the golden version are interwoven by gold lurex, of the silver version by silver lurex.
Composition: 85% linen 15% polyester
'Sambesi' by Nya Nordiska
‘Sambesi’ is made from a classic leno weave with a very fine lengthwise mesh structure. The material mixture is interesting: a high-quality connection emphasizes the graphical appearance and provides the pleasant soft handle. A polyester yarn in the weft crosses the fabric with a brilliant shine.
Composition: 60% linen 30% wool 10% polyester
'Yksi' by Nya Nordiska
‘Yksi’ is a multi-purpose fabric with a slight feather twill has three patterns: a fine pinstripe (Mono), a classical ornamental stripe (Tre) and plain (Unito).
