What we have for you today is really mesmerizing and unusual, and was inspired by the phantasmagoric landscapes of Iceland.
London studio Klaus Haapaniemi & Co has designed a hand-engraved sofa, woven tapestry and circular carpet inspired by Iceland. The pieces feature a print called Black Lake, which Haapaniemi created after hearing the Icelandic singer Björk’s description of the lava fields close to her house.
The bespoke sofa with an angular timber frame features subtle hand engravings on its arms, back and feet, while chunky cushions are upholstered with the Black Lake print. The woven tapestry is intended to be used as long rug that is draped over the sofa. Inspired by the dark, steaming lake described by Björk, the circular carpet is decorated with unusual foliage, water lilies and mysterious lava stones.
Now the collection is made especially for Björk’s remote summer house and will be sent to her but we hope to see a commercial version of it on sale, too.
