Mix was first launched in 2016, and are one of Heymats first and most popular collections. Now Mix is being presented in a brand-new edition, created by Tekla Evelina Severin, better known as Teklan
With a nod to 70’s color palette, gemstones and the Mediterranean, Tekla has created a contemporary color scheme in earthy pastels that welcome you home.
First launched in 2016, Mix was originally designed by Norwegian designer Kristine Five Melvær, whose design plays with different rectangles in contrasting colors combined with each other. For Tekla Evelina Severin, it was important to show her appreciation for the original design in her new creation, contributing something new in her personal interpretation
– I wanted to create a new version of Mix that feels harmonic and inspiring to come home to. I drew great inspiration from the soft and almost meditative color scale of gemstones, says Tekla Evelina Severin
A colorist, interior designer, and one of the brightest stars in the design world, Tekla Evelina Severin is known for her strong color compositions and graphically playful artistic expression – often monochrome. Her use of unexpected color combinations keeps her relevant and in demand for new projects all over the world. She was recently listed by German AD as one of the most influential people within the design industry today and by Deezen as one of the top ten architectural photographers in the world
Kristine Five Melvær designed Heymat’s first collection, launched in January 2016. She immediately liked the idea of offering regular customers a product with the same high quality as industrial mats, and she has designed several collections for Heymat over the years. Kristine is concerned with finding themes and patterns that are pleasant to come home to.
Kristine holds a master’s degree in Industrial Design from The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, and a master’s degree in Visual Communication from The Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She combines both disciplines in her works – spanning from furniture design to textiles and graphics – and she has won several awards within both her fields of expertise
