Design House Stockholm Björk Rug
Design House Stockholm - Björk Rug, The birch, a tree that can be found all over Sweden, was the inspiration for the Bjork collection. The expression in the woven structure comes from the black and white trunk of the birch and the leather represents the inside of the bark.
The rug forms a beautiful flat textile surface in the home as natural as stone or wood. To the designer the rugs are like poetry, like a quiet whisper in the room.
Lena Bergstrom has expanded her Bjork collection with a small rug and a stool available in two sizes. The colour tones of Bjork create a marbled effect through a warp of cotton intertwined with a weft in wool known not only for its softness but also for its built-in resistance to soiling thanks to its natural oils.
