Pernelle Fagerlund, textile designer, b. 1960.

Statement:
“I design three-dimensional textiles, which convey evocative and energy renewing sensations, stimulating the body in relaxation ‘situations’. Textiles are almost always inferior to the form; in my three-dimensional work, the textiles play the main part both as furniture and as textile. The third dimension is used to express the humorous, the vigorous, the playful – this type of furniture should appeal to pause and at the same time be a visual experience. I want to draw the expression towards something sculptural, sumptuous, unpretentious, funny, curious and voluminous.”
