We love the work of Olafur Eliasson (*1967). The artist is well known for his spectacular and poetical installations with light and water. And he combined our passion for beautiful furniture and art in Fog couch, 2018.
Fog couch is the outcome of many years of intensive collaboration with the Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat. It was originally intended as a specific art-work for their headquarters.
The ART-furniture is reminiscent of stones cut by waves. Each segment of the long sofa is composed in different dimensions. "The shape of each section depends on the relationship between the elliptical back section and the rectangular base - the angle at which the ellipse is tilted is determined by the size of the base section", explains the artist at olafureliasson.net.
The knitted upholstering suggest the wavy sand that the sea leaves behind when it retreats. It is the result of more than five years research of textile techniques.
What a treat for the senses!!
