Design House Stockholm Knot Seat Cushion
Sit on it. Bounce on it. Rest on it. Or just leave it right in the middle of the floor as a sculpture. Ragnheidur Sigursdottir's Knot cushion has grown into an XL version that is an informal and extremely comfortable seating at home and in public. An interior design object that is in itself a typological question mark.
chair in easy-going environ-ments regardless if it is at home, a vibrant office, or any informal public space. Knot is influenced by pop art, by pop-ups, even Chinese Lucky Knots; and it looks like a sculpture, but a sculpture with function! That is what design should be: playful, comfortable, well built, and something that makes you smile.”

I was born in Iceland in 1981. I grew up in a small town by the ocean in the southwest of Iceland. I come from a family of musicians so at age five I started my music career playing the recorder and later the piano and violin. I loved music and still do but my love for unique objects was stronger. I started collecting everything I could get my hands on from napkins to erasers. If I got a piece of candy in nice packaging, I would keep it for years just because it looked nice. All these little things I collected were my jewels and I still have most of them today. I always knew I wanted to create something but product design first came to mind at a show in Reykjavik ‘99 featuring Mark Newson, Jasper Morisson and Michael Young. I figured I could be creating my own precious objects that would hopefully affect other people in the same way my collections of things affected me.
