The new rug Dragon Lava or in Icelandic Drekahraun photosession at Reynisfjara in s-Iceland.  This beautiful place is the perfect backdrop for the rugs.  Here the Dragon Lava rug is photographed with Reynisdrangar in the background.  We had to be there quite early to beat the tourists.  We nearly did that however the 10 people enjoying the black lava beach were not in our way so everything went by the book and we finished the photoshoot on time.

Work for Florence Design Week 2015

 

It was wonderful surprise to be contacted by the representatives from Florence Design Week in January last.  Such an honour to be invited to take part in this prestigious event in on of the most beautiful city.

The work that will be exhibited in Florence must be at the edge of design.  And that is how the lava fall was born a rug inspired by molting lava falling from a hight of 12 meters.  This piece is only two meters high falling from a wall to be spread onto the floor forward ca. 90 cm.  LavaFall-72-300I thought this piece needed some support and decided to make a twin work to go with it.  What I chose to do is a glacier.  Not surprising as most of our volcanos are under glaciers.
