‘dip dye furniture series’ by karlsson & bjork + sundin/persson
every pattern is unique depending on the wood, dye and pressure
‘dip dye’, the collaboration between product designers karlsson & bjork and textile designers sundin/persson.
approaches its process without given hierarchies. rather than having the furniture piece developed first,
then later fitted with a random fabric – the idea allows the physical components to bare the imprint of the
upholstery and vice versa through-out the development stages. the textiles are folded and squeezed between
the legs which are held together with zip ties - involving the dying process as part of the finished product aesthetic.
the result depends on the type of wood, fabric and color, making every example unique.
