“Standing Textile(s)” are built up, thread by thread, on a custom-made weaving loom. 3D-woven configurations are experimentally discovered on the spot, creating intriguing tactile volumes. The lack of support and hollowness might make them seem on the edge of breaking, but their open structures are strong and sturdy.
This new method of weaving allows for endless possibilities in shape, use of colour, and material and, therefore, in application. From brightly coloured, recycled plastic dividing walls to sound reducing lamps from paper yarn.
“Standing Textile(s)” arose from an experimental textile research, driven by the desire to bring textile into the interior in a different way than we are used to. The research consciously awards the value of artisanal textile production techniques, explores its unseen possibilities, and questions the use of textiles today.
An urge to create a new and more tactile identity and atmosphere, lead me to research new materials for a new skin for the “Standing Textile(s)” sculptures. The research resulted in an acoustics improving special edition collection, including this one of a kind sculpture and lampshade, “Rae”. The lightweight 3D, handwoven structures are coated with an eco-friendly material, made from a mixture of recycled paper fibers, and biodegradable glue, which, once applied, not only leaves an attractive tactile surface, but absorbs sound and improves acoustics within interiors.

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.
