About the designer


Luiza Caldari

Luiza Caldari’s approach to tapestry stems from her background in design and is driven by material exploration. She works to mix “the simplicity of wool, something so familiar and known to everybody” with unusual shapes and unexpected color palettes. Caldari’s use of fiber also extends to sculptures and functional objects. “My intention is to bring more color to life, creating a kind of coziness for the eyes,” says Caldari. “I want my work to bring comfort and joy for all who see it.”

Without formal training as a weaver, Caldari sees her work as a free form exercise. “I don’t follow rules and I’ve created my own unique method of weaving. I sometimes search for formal techniques, but in a way that optimizes my creativity,” says Caldari. This freeness is evident in Caldari’s work; weft yarns cascade from her tapestries. Within the same piece she may add tufting and wrapped elements. It’s obvious that she enjoys playing with the medium, as her tapestries range from large scale handwoven wall pieces to three-dimensional hand-tufted tapestries designed in collaboration with furniture and lighting designers.

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.
