Description

GRADIENT is a jacquard woven rug made from Merino wool, Mohair, linen, and cotton.

By felting and manipulating the fabric after weaving, the materials change. They start to wrinkle, shrink, move, and distort, revealing their most tactile characteristics. Through this process, different textures and organic shapes are created, looking and feeling luxuriously tactile. As a result, the woven rug gets a three-dimensional character and the graphical design transforms into a variety of tangible textures.

This rug has no real front or backside, since they are both equally valuable. Each side expresses a different feel, a touch to treasure.

This piece is made in collaboration with TextielLab Tilburg.

About the designer


Emma Terweduwe

Emma Terweduwe (°1996) is a textile designer based in Ghent, Belgium. In 2019 she graduated with a master degree in Textile Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. Since then she runs her own textile studio where she works on her designs, focusing on consciously jacquard woven objects for interior and fashion. Emma’s work is defined by the use of raw and natural materials that are subtle yet expressive such as wool and linen. By felting and manipulating, the woven fabrics change: They shrink, move and distort. In that way the materials start expressing their most tactile self. Texture, structure and color are very significant in her work, tactility is what it is all about. In that way she criticises our fast and visually driven society, by creating textile pieces that are meant to touch our tactile senses. “Through a series of carpets, blankets and scarfs I invite the user to thoughtfully touch, feel and treasure. “

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
