The ever artful Björk has inspired a textile for the ages that’s been realized in the form of a coach, tapestry and rug. Titled “Black Lake,” the design comes via the hand of London-based, Finnish designer Klaus Haapaniemi, who created it based on the singer’s description of the dark, steaming lava lakes near her Icelandic summer home.
Built by Finnish furniture studio Nikari, the tapestry was woven in a textile mill in Bristol and the carpet was printed on wool in the Netherlands. Before the collection ships to Björk’s home for good, it will be on display at Helsinki gallery Lokal.
The textile was also used to create collection of scarves and purses that will be sold at the gallery shop and on Happaniemi’s online store.
