Growing up on an island in the Stockholm archipelago, the sea and the rugged island environment are constant companions in Eva Schildt’s artistic practice. Since graduating in Furniture and Product Design from Beckmans College of Design, Stockholm, in 2001, Schildt has designed everything from furniture to textiles, packaging and trade fair showcases. She also works as an interior architect.
Eva Schildt’s playful approach to everyday life and her warm personality are inherent in her designs, which are available in many countries. Currently based in Stockholm she has previously lived in Tokyo and collaborated with many Japanese companies. Eva Schildt is represented at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg.
The design Rose is a wool rug woven in single-weave with a section of hand-tufted irregular dots at each end. ”The design consists of two form elements – order and disorder. I like to find the perfect balance between them” says Eva Schildt. The design fits runners as well as larger rugs and is offered in Vandra Rugs’ full range of wool yarn colours and neutrals.
