The new Kattegattgymnasiet school in Halmstad is one of the biggest construction projects in the modern history of the city, with a final cost of more than SEK 0.5 billion. When it came to furnishing the school auditorium, Nevotex’s Lido furniture fabric was chosen − which fulfilled the demanding requirements set for color, form and quality.


Kattegattgymnasiet’s large auditorium was opened in August 2020. With space to accommodate almost 500 people, it’s the crowning glory of this huge construction project, which is due to be completed in 2021. The auditorium will be used for external guests, live-broadcast events, training courses and school activities for the student body of almost 1,500. School principal Rikard Sjödahl points out that the premises have been constructed to meet future demands.

. − The auditorium is superb and well crafted in terms of everything from construction and technology to materials and colors. The chairs are extremely comfortable. The fabric is hard-wearing, which is essential. In addition to fulfilling all the requirements relating to work environment, fire safety and durability necessary in a public space, the chairs are very comfy to sit in and the fabric is a great color. Together with the other interior furnishings, they inject a real explosion of color.

Time constraints demand a reliable supplier

Thomas Pettersson describes every project as unique. Furniture is specially designed to suit requirements and short lead times are standard. However, working with time constraints requires everything to run like clockwork and Nevotex is a reliable supplier in that respect, so much so that they also supply upholstery material to the company.

“Nevotex holds large stocks and there has never been any problem with delivery times. We try to work with them as often as we can,” says Thomas.

Balzar Beskow produces everything from individual items of furniture to complete interiors. The cost of furniture fabric differs greatly between suppliers and with large volumes that price difference can turn out to be several hundred thousand kronor. In this case the fabric chosen was Lido, which now graces the seats of a total of 580 chairs in the new auditorium and adjacent lecture halls. Once bids had been received and the options reviewed, the fabric from Nevotex was the one that best fulfilled the demanding quality and cost requirements along with the color criteria and characteristics specified by the architect.

“The Nevotex furniture fabric collection offers a very attractive and useful color palette, and the end result lives up to our expectations,” notes Henrik Geijer from Fredblad Arkitekter in Halmstad.

Color and form for the future

Rikard Sjödahl likes to sit and work in the auditorium, the adjacent lecture halls and the open areas of the school. He wants to be available to his students during the school day, and the new premises facilitate that. The Kattegatt project has been a major part of his everyday life for the past three years. He mentions in particular the positive collaboration permeating contact with suppliers.

“Everything has worked fantastically well, especially considering the scale of the project. It has truly been a model project,” states Rikard.

As part of the Kattegatt project, Nevotex has collaborated with furniture manufacturer Balzar Beskow, which designs and manufactures interior furnishings for public spaces. The auditorium in Halmstad is one of many joint projects for these two family companies, which have local roots but operate on a global market – and boast long-standing and solid experience in Swedish interior design.

“I tend to recommend Nevotex as often as I can when dealing with architects. They’re a first-rate supplier with a large range, offering excellent quality at an attractive price,” says Thomas Pettersson, General Manager at Balzar Beskow.

More about Lido


“Lido is one of our most popular furniture fabrics. It’s used to upholster individual items of furniture, but also in large projects, such as hotel interiors, and in public spaces. Lido’s strength is that it offers top quality at a great price. It’s a hard-wearing and durable furniture fabric with a fleecy surface that makes it soft and easy to work with. Lido is available in 89 different shades. The wide selection of colors together with its favorable characteristics and advantageous price make it attractive to architects and end customers for both large and small projects.”

Scandic Laholmen

Close to magnificent scenery and where the murmur of the ocean meets historic landmarks you will find the Scandic Laholmen hotel

Refurbishing the interiors of the hotel’s 171 rooms, during an ongoing pandemic, turned into a project with exceptional circumstances. 

The aim for the refurbishment was to draw inspiration from the surrounding environment. The interior and the choice of upholstery fabrics gives visitors a sense of the ocean and nature.“A modern interior featuring hard-wearing fabrics and earthy tones in a wide variety of textures.”

The choice of materials reflects a warm marine feel, which can be seen in the shades of turquoise and the brownish-yellow copper tones symbolizing earth and nature.

The object was to give guests a feeling of modern warmth in a classic style. An enduring feel, in terms of both time and durability of materials.

Collaboration is key 


“Exceptional times demand exceptional effort. The pandemic brought many challenges, but thanks to dedicated and extremely helpful hotel staff and local partners we completed the project on time.  Everyone involved has been on the ball. They have stepped in as needed and the flexibility offered by Nevotex was invaluable in getting 96 rooms refurbished in the prevailing circumstances. We are so pleased with all the work performed by our partners and with our own contribution, which has resulted in an interior featuring vibrant, quality materials.”

Formal meets cozy on the west coast

How do you create a cozy feel in a large house characterized by austere architecture and stylish design?

For curtain designer Sofia Grankvist, curtain fabric from Nevotex was the obvious solution.

She took on this project in connection with filming of the TV series, Grand Designs. 

“Several of the rooms needed a softer backdrop, and the right curtains can alter the overall feel without taking over the space. I have collaborated with Nevotex previously and love their new Bari and Bologna collections. The fresh colors and the fine quality of the material were perfect for this project.”

Curtains don’t just have an aesthetic function in an interior design context. The properties of the material also affect the penetration of light, privacy, fire safety and much more.

“Nevotex curtain fabric enabled us to take all such aspects into account, while at the same time maintaining an attractive style,” says
Sofia Grankvist.

Blackstone Steakhouse is located in ten locations in Sweden. The restaurants are operated as franchise. Interior and tonality aim for the same feeling and experience – a balance between hard and soft in mixed materials of brass, velvet, painted and industrial. Each location becomes unique when the choice of premises always manages to be a challenge.

“Feedback from many customers gives us trust within the material that we get the opportunity to work with. We want to enhance the overall experience when visiting Blackstone Steakhouse, both in taste and environment.  

At Nevotex we found the material that we felt we wanted to work with, that also suit the sense of quality that we were looking for. The material we have chosen is easy to care and the collaboration with Nevotex has worked well during the entire project. There has been a lot to choose from in style and material that contribute to develop our concept and it feels good to have chosen the right ones. ”
