A cushion with a unique character, based on sculptural form instead of patterns. Knot is made from a knitted tube, several metres in length, which is then tied up to create a compact knot which is as comfortable as a support in the sofa as it is elegant to behold.
Design House Stockholm is a publishing house for contemporary Scandinavian design, with products ranging from furniture to fashion, lighting, tabletop and limited studio editions. With the aim of enhancing everyday life, Design House Stockholm has been changing the way people think about their living and working space for many years.
They credit their success to the way they work; in an extensive network of more than 60 independent designers, in the same way publishing houses work with authors. They collaborate with both new, up-and-coming talent and established names.
Although the majority of their designers are from Scandinavia, Design House Stockholm work with designers from all over the world in order to find that special Scandinavian touch. Unlike many other companies, they don't try to force the fresh and free designs into a fixed production apparatus. Instead, they use their extensive networks to find the right kind of production facilities, at the same time as exploring new production methods. All this transforms ideas into real products.
Their collection of functional and aesthetically refined design products of timeless appeal ranges from tableware and lighting to furniture and textiles. Today their collection boldly ranges from the conceptual to arts and crafts-like pragmatism, from decoratively maximalist to utterly minimalist.
By helping her grandfather who was a signmaker in Iceland, Ragnheiour Osp Siguroardottir was inspired to work creatively at an early age.
“There was always this strong sense of DIY and making things happen. This way of thinking inspired me to open my mind and see that it is possible to create anything.”
After studies at the Iceland Academy of Arts and Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Ragnheiour opened her own studio in Reykjavik. The Knot cushion was born in 2011, while she was making bear figures made of crocheted tubes.
“I wanted to try tying the tubes into knots and seeing the outcome. I found the idea of a big, soft knot intriguing in a fun kind of pop-arty way. I also like that when you take a first look at the cushion you might not really know what it is, and perhaps that is what draws you closer.”
