Tablecloth and napkins for the Nobel dinner for 27th time

Nobel duk Hellinne Klässbols Linneväveri Ingrid Dessau Nobeldukningen

On December 10th, the eyes of the world again watches Sweden and the Nobel dinner. This year is the 27th year in a row as Klässbols Linneväveri is a partner and Dick Johansson, marketing and export manager and third-generation depart from Värmland with tablecloths and napkins for the dinner set. Same procedure year after year.

Over a thousand guests are invited and Klässbols Linneväveri contributes with 500 meters tablecloth in precious linen and 1350 generous napkins measuring a total of 70 x 70 cm.

In 1991, the result of a unique collaboration between some of Sweden’s most skilled designers and quality-conscious manufacturers was launched. The idea behind the project was the art historian Åke Livstedt and architect Magnus Silfverhielm. On behalf of the Nobel Foundation, a proposal for renewal, both on the ceremonial framing and on the banquet itself, was prepared for the celebration of the Nobel Prize 90th anniversary in 1991.
The decision was made to create brand new parts for the tablecloth, and Orrefors, Rörstrand, Gense and Klässbols Linneväveri were commissioned in their respective areas, and Gunnar Cyrén, Karin Björquist and Ingrid Dessau were responsible for the design.
For the textile design, Ingrid Dessau, an outstanding designer who became an artistic breakthrough in 1953, was responsible for a joint exhibition with Signe Persson Melin at Galerie Moderne in Stockholm. After this she became the first designer at Kasthall and during her time there signed several carpets in their collection.

After Klässbols Linneväveri was commissioned, a lot of work took off and two looms were built for the purpose. All weaving was made in mechanical looms, one with jacquard and one in handle, all in satin binding.
The tablecloth chair became the widest in the company’s history at this time with a width of 210 cm to cover the hall table. No cloth was under 10 meters long and a total of 500 meters of cloth was used during the Nobel banquet.
The original napkins are generous and have the Nobel emblem stewarded in one corner. At the tablecloth, the napkin is placed on the assiets and through the special Nobelvikningen, the bread can be placed in it to hold it warm for dinner.
It was a time-consuming job to weave the 1350 napkins. A job that lasted for a year. A unique part of the project was that the tablecloths would be woven with natural unbleached untreated linen. The reasons for this were partly from an environmental perspective, but also because the unbleached gray cloth would serve as a stage for glassware, crockery, cutlery and flower arrangements.

On December 10th, it is time again for world’s most celebrated celebration for the 27th year. An honorable mission like Klässbols Linneväveri greatly appreciates. Again, 1350 guests enjoy a unique event and get acquainted with parts of our Swedish heritage in the form of textiles, glasses and crockery.

Nobel cloth and napkins are woven by Klässbols Linneväveri in traditional technology with modern design. The woven window pattern becomes visible by diffusing the light differently from the warp and weave surfaces. The white napkins, 70 x 70 cm, are woven in damask with a thinner lining that nicely emphasizes the Nobel emblem in one of the napkin’s corners. The Nobel range has been complemented with a napkin, 50 x 50 cm, in satin and of the colors of sand and white, all in 100% linen.
The Nobel series won the Excellent Swedish Form award in 1992.
Today there are a variety of products in the Nobel range:

Tabelcloth 160 or 180 cm wide. Length varies from 160-460 cm. Available in sand and white.

DYLTA – the Nobel series pre model.

The DYLTA pattern was found by Röhsska Museet’s Helena Dahlbäck-Luttermans at Frisher Lea Åkerhielm at Dylta Bruk in Närke. The quality of the original is woven in coarsely home-made unbleached yarn. New production has taken all of the original requirements. The tablecloth should be used diligently as it gives it a even more beautiful look for each wash.

Combine DYLTA napkin or tablet and towel.
