Abstract [sv]

Jag vill i detta arbete visa på att textilens feminina koppling gör att klädda möbler och möbler med textila uttryck spelar en underordnad roll i designvärlden. Vanligen är tyget på en sittmöbel utbytbart och inte ansett att spela en så viktig roll för möbeln som formen. genom att ständigt göra textilen utbytbar sätts tyget åt sidan, förminskas och underordnas möbelns form. Vad betyder det för möbler och inredningar?

I detta projekt hoppas jag kunna visa en möbel där den rådande orrdningen inte efterföljs och där tyg och form samverkar. Jag har hämtat inspiration från Lilli Zickermans fotosamling av gamla svenska inredningstextilier. Mönstren som jag hittat där har jag matchat med mönster och uttyck med gemensamma drag från hela världen, i namnlösa traditioner ofta burna av kvinnor. Jag har försökt komma underfund med varför mönster från vitt skilda kulturer liknar varnadra så mycket. Jag fann aspekter såsom kulturmöten och förflyttningar men också ett slags gemensamt sinne för former och användandet av likartade verktyg. Jag har i tillverkningen använt mig av utslitna täckjackor till stoppning och ytan är klädd med remsor klippta av utslitna t-tröjor. Hela möbeln är tillverkad av mig för hand.

Abstract [en]

In this work I want to show that the fabric´s feminineconnection make upholstered furniture play a subordinate role in the design world.Usually the fabric on a chair is replaceable and is not considered to play as big part of the furniture as the form. By constantly making the textile replaceable the fabric is put aside, diminished and subordinated to the furniture's form. What does that do to furniture and interiors?My goal in this project was to design and produce a piece of furniture where the established order was not followed.As a start of this project I have looked at, and photographed images on textiles from Lilli Zickermans photo collection of old Swedish home interior textiles. I have looked at the cushions and pillows that has been an integrated part of the old chair's appearance and comfort. I have been inspired by the photographed images and I have continued to work with my own expressions and patterns in that tradition on a big easy chair. I have matched patterns from Lilli Zickermans photo collection with crafts, patterns and expressions with common shapes from around the world, from anonymous textile traditions often carried on by women. Pattern forms such as the rhomb, the square and the circle repeats in most cultures. I have tried to understand why patterns from all over the world look so similar. I have found aspects such as cultural meetings and movements but also a common feeling for patterns and the use of the same techniques and tools.Another important aspect of this work has been working with recycled materials. I have in the making of this chair used worn winter jackets for the padding and the surface is covered with strips cut from worn t-shirts in tricot. In this project I have worked with both collections of clothes, patterns and quotes.
