Designed by Lena Bergström
Lena has continued to work with the same mottled effect that she used in her Björk rugs and this time, too, she has found her inspiration in nature; endless fields that spread like a collage across the landscape in gentle colours. She has paid as much attention to the way in which the different coloured threads are interwoven and how the areas of different colours lie in relation to each other. And once again she has made use of leather edging. The Fields collection is based on a weft in wool, combined with details in leather. Wool is known not only for its softness, but also for its built-in resistance to soiling thanks to its natural oils. All Fields products are hand-woven pieces of handicraft, making every product unique.
100% wool, leather handles. Upholstery: fire retardant polyurethane foam, styrofoam core.
Stool: Ø 40 cm (18"), H 40 cm (18")
Care instructions: Vacuum clean Fields regularly to remove particles imbedded in the wool. Spots can be removed using a clean cloth or sponge with lukewarm water. Do not allow the wool to become soaked. Remove excess water with a sponge. When cleaning the stool, we recommend using a qualified rug specialist. Flat wash with water and flat dry.
