DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM BJORK POUF.
Design by Lena Bergstrom.
The designer Lena Bergström was inspired by the birch tree and its rough black-and-white trunk when creating these beautiful Björk ottomans. From the Swedish Design House Stockholm, available in two color settings. The footstool is a natural part of the Björk collection, just like the stumps in a birch forest. It is a piece of furniture that comes across as light and soft.
The colors of Björk create a kind of marble effect because the cotton is interwoven with a wool, this method is not only known for the softness of the fabric, but also for the high dirt-repellent effect thanks to its natural fats in the fabrics.
Dimensions: Ø 45 x H 35 cm. / Ø 40 x H 40 cm.
Colors: light gray, dark gray.
Material: Wool / Cotton Leather.
About the designer:
Lena Bergström has a deep knowledge of craftsmanship and an utmost respect and love for the material that she is working with whether it is glass, metal or textiles. Basket Rug is entirely made by hand and has a reminiscence of old times hand woven baskets. The special technique of hand-tufting runs in different directions to en- hance the three-dimensional feel of Basket.
New colors are a grey- brown, that blends well with both grey and brown-beige colors, and dark green. Several threads in different shades creates the desired lustre. The rug is then carefully cut by hand into a tromp l’oeil graphic pattern that pays homage to Swedish handicraft traditions such as birch bark baskets and rucksacks.
Sharp angles and soft transitions play the roles in a shadow play that is both illusion and reality.
