Björk rugs by Lena Bergström have a patterned structure and are enriched by a stylish and protective leather edging. Lena’s conviction is that a rug’s flat textile surface is just as natural in the home as stone and wood. “To me, the rugs are poetry, like a quiet whisper within the room”. The colour tones create a marbled effect through a warp of cotton intertwined with a weft in wool, known not only for its softness, but also for its in-built resistance to dirt. “Björk is the Swedish word for birch, a tree that is found all over Sweden and is the symbol of Umeå, the town I grew up in”, adds Lena. “I’ve been inspired by the rough black and white trunk which has a strong graphical and unique structure. The leather edging alludes to the inside of the bark”. Lena Bergström has won the Excellent Swedish Design Award several times and is also one of the prominent glass designers at Orrefors.
