Ragnheidur Osp Sigurdardottir
By helping her grandfather who was a signmaker in Iceland, Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir was inspired to work creatively at an early age “There was always this strong sense of DIY and making things happen This way of thinking inspired me to open my mind and see that it is possible to create anything” After studies at the Iceland Academy of Arts and Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Ragnheiður opened her own studio in Reykjavik The Knot cushion was born in 2011, while she was making bear figures made of crocheted tubes “I wanted to try tying the tubes into knots and seeing the outcome I found the idea of a big, soft knot intriguing in a fun kind of pop-arty way I also like that when you take a first look at the cushion you might not really know what it is, and perhaps that is what draws you closer”
”You don’t really know what it is when first look at it, it offers an opportunity to use your imagination! It is part influenced by pop art, by pop-ups, looking like a sculpture, but a sculpture with function. That is what design should be: playful, comfortable, well built, and something that makes you smile.”
”I made knots as a girl scout and I learned to stitch in first grade like every one else here in Iceland, it was mandatory, a part of our culture. And, yes, I would love to make a pair of mittens for Bernie Sanders!”
A cushion with a unique character, based on sculptural form instead of patterns. Knot is made from a knitted tube, several meters in length, which is then tied up to create a compact knot which is as comfortable as a support in the sofa as it is elegant to behold. Thanks to its strong design, Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir’s Knot cushion belongs to the exclusive group of products that remain in one’s memory.
