OSCAR WALL – RYA CHAIR. Young Swedish Design 2020 4 February - 22 March.jpg
Stockholm Design Week: Ung Svensk Form/Young Swedish Design 2020. 4 February - 22 March. OSCAR WALL – RYA CHAIR. Rya Chair was born out of my graduation project and is a part of my Ryamöbler collection. I explored how the technique of tufting can be applied to wooden furniture. I want the tufting to add soft surfaces and shapes to ornament the hard, right-angled wooden skeleton.
Is it a rya rug, a piece of furniture, or a piece of rya furniture? The obsolete rya rug is given new life by being made three-dimensional and shaping itself to the bearing wooden construction, in a revolutionary reinterpretation of the design idiom of the classic loom.
