INCLUDED MIDDLE

In 2014 Margrethe Odgard and I founded the duo INCLUDED MIDDLE. We both work individually from each our studio, but when we work together as INCLUDED MIDDLE we examine the gap between our two fields, textile and furniture, ending up with objects we would not have come up with separately.
Our main focus is to make objects that challenges people´s perception of combining colour, pattern and form and often giving them the possibility to interact with the objects and change the expression.
We work from the sentences what if colour and pattern influence form and what if form influence colour and pattern.

MIFTAH 2016
MIFTAH is two handwoven floor cushions questioning the boundaries of when a textile becomes a furniture.

A mattress is the one piece of furniture we really need. The universal basis of comfort, rest and homeliness, regardless of status and culture. The name, ‘miftah’, is Arabic for key: a physical key to a door or a home as well as a figurative key to something new. In a comment on the current refugee situation in Europe, we chose the name with the aim of sparking associations to an open door that leads to safety, a new country, culture or home and new solutions. The small pillow doubles as an extra chair when you welcome a guest or share your home with someone else

Materials: Icelandic wool and foam.

Exhibited as part of MINDCRAFT16 during Salone del Mobile, April 12-17 2016 at Circolo Filologico Milanese, Via Clerici 10, 20121 Milan
