Textile Dictatorship is an element of rest. The bed can be used for power-naps, a quick nap that enables you to relax and dream about another world or let your imagination run wild surrounded by the flowers of the sea, sea anemones, corals and water plants. The element of rest is suitable both for the home and the office. It is made of fulled wool, felt, insulation tubes and EVA foam. DIMENSIONS: 180 x 100 x 50 cm.
b. 1960, Danish Textile Designer
Fagerlund graduated from Danmarks Designskole, Copenhagen in 2003. She studied painting and sculpture at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in the early 1990s. The sculptural approach is clearly discernible in her work, which often gives the impression of being textile furniture. She transcends the traditional boundaries relegating textiles to a secondary role in furniture-design. Instead she seeks to meld the two concepts in a synthesis providing a surprising and untraditional take on an entirely new kind of furniture. One example of this artistic working technique is to be founding her work Textile Dictatorship from 2003, an untraditional element of rest produced from fulled wool, felt and insulating tubing – inspired by marine life: sea anemones, corals and plants. Due to its originality, this work has been exhibited in numerous places in Denmark and abroad – most recently in Berlin in 2006. Pernelle Fagerlund’s untraditional working method, which challenges traditional boundaries between textile and furniture have given rise to a great deal of press coverage in Danish and international lifestyle- and fashion magazines.
