Carpet 0.1

Carpet 0.1 mounted on the wall like a tapestry, wool- and linen thread from Kasthall, design by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg, MFA BIG DATA DESIGN - Strange but familiar, 2019

Carpet 0.1


The carpet design project is a part of the MFA thesis BIG DATA DESIGN - Strange but familiar. The textile element was developed to complement and frame the heavy sculptural wood furniture.


The carpet is envisioned as an early-season crisp spring field of wild-grown grass. The thread length is varied to sections of 20mm and 30mm. The design is consciously exhibited un-cut. The wild spouting seemingly random spread of these un-cut threads is embraced as an important part of the final design.



Carpet 0.1 was tufted at Konstfack by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg. Material sponsored by Kasthall.
