Ever since the outset of her career, Pia Wallén has honoured the traditions of Swedish handicraft. She has re-invented the materials, the techniques and ellaborations in a contemporary context, sometimes contemplative, other times with wit and lust — but always sincere. This profound passion, in combination with her unique personal idiom, has made Pia Wallén one of the most important and influential pioneers in contemporary Swedish design.
Objects of deeper quality, with esthetic as well as physical durability, can become loved companions for everyday life. That's where Pia Wallén’s reflections come in. Her work is vast, stretching from bracelets via hand tufted carpets, bags and fashion, furniture and wool objects including slippers, blankets and more, to interesting industrial collaborations in high-tech manufacturing. Her designs are objects to like, to sympathise and share a life together with.
