The idea for the carpet FJÄLL came during a joint exhibition. Furniture producer Klong exhibited Ania Pausers lamp KNOPP next Katehas hand-woven rugs. The shadows from the KNOPP lamp spread on the gallery walls and ceiling and put the whole thing in motion, and laid the foundation for the carpet pattern.
- I've always been tempted to make rugs. A carpet is an incredibly good medium to apply the pattern on.
It has a lot of space to work with, as a blank canvas with unlimited possibilities.
With FJÄLL carpet, I wanted to capture the shadows that the laser cut lamp KNOPP create. It is a graphical simple pattern and to give the carpet an extra dimension I added small tufted dots in the woven surface.
They give the carpet more life and adds a tactile feel when you walk on it.
The carpet FJÄLL is hand-woven in wool with tufted dots.
FJÄLL carpet are available in sizes 170 x 240 cm and 80x250 cm.
