Puff Knot, designed by Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir, for Design House Stockholm .
The Puff Knot is the large version of the famous Knot cushion, with a unique character, based on sculptural shapes instead of patterns. The knot is made of a woven tube, several meters long, which is then tied to create a compact knot that is comfortable but also a decorative element on the sofa, elegant to look at.
"I've always been drawn to strange and unique things," explains Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir as he talks about how he developed the idea for Knot. “I try to create unusual designs; products that are unpredictable and that pique people's curiosity. "But there was a long way to go when he started experimenting with tubular knitting on a machine about five years ago. He was really looking for an efficient way to make a bear's paws. instead of knitting them by hand. But she ended up with a knot-shaped cushion and where exactly the inspiration came from. She has wondered about herself: "As a child I was in the scouts," she explains, "and she was very good at knotting." .
Knot XL by Ragnheidur Sigursdottir is a fantasy form taking its inspiration in the making of knots, knitting, exploring sculptural forms instead of ordinary patterns. Born in part as a try to manufacture rather than crocheting legs for a teddy bear, the original Knot cushion became a homey art gallery piece. The XL version is even more: a new seating typology that adapt to everyone, and a perfect possibility to sit at the same levels as the very small kids. Lean on it, sit on it, relax on it, and let Knot XL break hierarchies when engaging in conversation. Let it replace or complement any sofa or lounge chair, a laid-back furniture piece at home, in a vibrant office, and in any informal public space. And when not in use, let it stand out as a sculpture. You can even use it for yoga, one of Ragnheidurs favourite personal uses.
Thanks to its strong design, the Knot puff by Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir belongs to the exclusive group of products that remain in memory.
