Knot cushions born out of accidents go to production
Icelandic designer Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir created the first version of the Knot cushion in 2011. The design is a result of an accident, or rather the unexpected development of a different venture: Sigurðardóttir was experimenting with knitting a teddy bear with a machine, instead of doing so by hand. When she was dealing with the leg part, she ended up with a tubular length of material. She knotted it to various formations and thus the Knot pillow collection was born.
Now, a good few years later, the series goes to production under the wings of Design House Stockholm. The pillows, available in a range of colours, are like fun, pop-art objects, not too suggestive of their function. Sigurðardóttir takes pride in the fact that Knot does not give away what it is made for; objects from her own studio Umemi are similarly playful, unexpected, and full of life.
