”To have the opportunity to design carpets has been a fantastic experience! To transfer your own design language from glass to an exclusive carpet has been a very exciting process. That two materials, which are so different, can still speak the same ”language” and fit so well together is so much fun to see!”
”When the question came up about making art carpets, I thought: What fun! I can pull up my small sketches to larger formats and from there transfer them onto carpets. It was a great challenge and exciting.”
"The contrast creates tension. The way the light plays with the hard glass and meets with the fabric's soft embrace. It is an unexpected encounter. What happens when a designer is trying to convey the same image in two such different materials? Exciting."
”It immediately felt like an exciting and fun assignment to design a carpet for Kosta Boda in partnership with CarpetVista. It is so inspiring to get access to a new material and work in a new process. The common denominator of my work as a glass designer is the freedom to express my own design world and that the carpets are made with high quality and great care. I have continued working on my glass ideas and found new ways to give them shape and color. My carpet has a close affinity to my glass art, but at the same time is independent and its own.”
”To go from glass to carpets is a great challenge – same thoughts and ideas, but completely new materials and a whole new world of possibilities to explore. Ovalen’s tranquil strength and the tone of the colors have moved from the glass over to the soft and sensual feel of the carpet under my feet.”
