Description

In Sweden, over a thousand tons of wool is burned or thrown out every year. At the same time, Sweden imports wool and wool goods for a value of four hundred million Swedish crowns. “Pyra Rug” is “Mylla rug´s” fiery sibling. And just like for the “Mylla Rug”, designer Lisa Darland uses the process of getting rid of the wool (burning and disintegration), the extensive fields of Skåne, and the fenced fields where the sheep spend their days from spring to autumn as an inspiration. “Pyra” is the Swedish word for burning slowly without flames.

“Pyra” rug is a textural rug handmade out of 100 % Swedish wool from farms in Skåne and Halland, a fiber that is flameproof, dirt-repellent, biodegradable, and can regulate humidity. The rugs are created with minimal cuts of the fibers and utilizes the characteristics of the wool, knit and weave. This combination creates a spongy texture that also can be used as a seating surface.

The rugs are knitted and then woven on a custom made frame, handmade in the designer’s own studio.

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.
