Sustainable solutions in Danish design
Milan Design Week is known to be the world's largest annual design gathering, and this year Gabriel is honoured to receive a visit from HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark at our showroom in Milan. As sustainable solutions in Danish design and architecture are in focus when HRH The Crown Princess participates in Milan Design Week, Gabriel is proud and honoured to present HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark to our long-time commitment to sustainability and circular economy - from the selection of raw materials to the final fabric design.

170 years of Danish craftmanship worldwide
While the purpose of the royal visit is to promote the green competences in Danish design companies, the visit is also a recognition of Danish craftsmanship and design traditions within the creative industries. These are the very same traditions and values that Gabriel celebrates this year as we mark our 170th anniversary as specialists in furniture fabric craftsmanship. From the first woollen upholstery fabrics in the early 20th century to our high-performance fabrics today, our dedication to our Scandinavian design heritage has remained the same with a strong focus on quality, aesthetics, and function. With new showrooms opening in design capitals around the world like in Milan, Gabriel is a company on a global growth journey with valuable international partnerships that continue to develop.

“Wandering Colours” exhibition in Milan showroom
Together with a strong drive for sustainability and innovation, the power of colour combined with quality craftsmanship are the key ingredients that make up the essence of Gabriel. As a celebration of Gabriel’s 170th anniversary, the showroom in Milan hosts the exhibition “Wandering Colours”. The installation is designed by the Milan based studio Baolab inspired by painter Albert Munsell's tree of colours that numerically categorises the different chromatic hues perceivable by the human eye. Furthermore, the exhibition includes two creations by furniture company Et al. with the Noodle table designed by Ana Kras, and the Pillow chair by Andrea Anastasio, upholstered with Gabriel fabrics for the occasion.
