When you’re a child, you observe your surroundings with a gaze that values things differently than an adults. A piece of trash can easily become a beloved treasure. You learn to navigate through, and use the objects around you as you grow older. By working, shopping, getting dressed, touching, cleaning and so on, the materials around you falls into their predetermined places, if you don’t make an effort to see them in a different perspective.

Instead of placing these liquids along a linear material hierarchy, the designer has  poured them out on the same plane. They consists of various colors, patterns and textures, and are stitched by hand onto of a piece of cotton. It is declared in black chain stitch what each puddle consists of, wether it is old breastmilk, pool water or hot aluminium.

All appliqué, quilting and embroidery is done by hand.

About the designer

Anna Nordström

In her work Nordström utilizes a wide range of textile techniques, mainly patchwork, quilting and embroidery. The traditional, or more common ways of creating, are modified to concern thoughts on work, labour, status, value and (lack of) professionalism. 


Nordström exposes social, commercial and political structures in contemporary popular culture by merging worlds of sensitivity and mass production. Working with textile as her main material her works are in direct contrast to the images of corporate logos, advertisements and self-help books which function as the artistic starting point of her practice. Her humorous aesthetic accentuates the irony in which she treats her work and preserves the unpredictability and improvisation between work and viewer. The expression of the materials play an important part and are chosen based on specific qualities and connotations. Often purchased on sale, often saying something about femininity.

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.
