TEKLA: “Le Corbusier’s legacy has always been an inspiration for Tekla – he’s one of the most influential architects, synonymous with modern architecture.
Established in Copenhagen in 2017, Tekla was born from a desire to bring modernity and freedom of expression to the homeware category.
Taking inspiration from art and architecture, it creates elevated yet functional homeware pieces that centre a timeless, straightforward design expression.
Tekla has embodied an honest commitment to uncompromising quality, which it continues to build on through close collaboration with its production partners. As a brand, it recognises its responsibility to mitigate its impact; it rejects rapid trend cycles by designing for longevity and producing responsibly.
With a foundation in bedding, the full collection now comprises pieces for the entire home, including towels, sleepwear and kitchen linens – all made to be lived in and made to last.
Tekla is available globally online
Le Cobusier “mohair” blanket collection
“We were attracted to the colours in Le Corbusier’s creations, how they were so central to the design and how he used them in his own life. As you move through his studio and home, colour almost acts as a guide, helping you to understand the space’s use.
Many of his spaces have a tempo and a movement that feel quite joyful. We wanted to capture this approach to colour in the blanket design.” Christoffer Lundman, Creative Lead at Tekla.
The collection takes inspiration from the architect’s Architectural Polychromy, comprising 63 colour shades created across two palettes in 1931 and 1951.
Le Corbusier used these colours 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. These colours are a natural foundation for the collection.
