My design

In a hectic everyday life where you never seem to unwind and be offline, a creative activity can force you to relax. Bloom is a small bench that encourages creative activity in form of weaving. 
The weaving in the bench makes it possible to customize the design and make it personal.  

My inspiration

I wanted to create a design that encouraged you to relax, while still doing something productive. The peg loom technique used in the bench makes it possible to produce usable fabric meant for different products, such as a rug or a bag.

The design is made with a minimal use of material and added details. The design consists of only a plank supported by four legs and the necessary support beneath, as the weave should be in focus.

To me, furniture design is not just about the aesthetics. Within furniture design, you can solve many everyday problems with objects that people already need in their home.

To try to optimize a design in both function and aesthetics is a challenge and as frustrating as it can be, it is very rewarding when you succeed.
