ACCENT compiles a mixture of Nordic design and a playful disposition. From Danish designer Margrethe Odgaard, the cushion highlights her love for bold innovative thinking. The simplicity of the soft canvas form allows the scaled canvas print to mimic a traditional weave, adding visual texture.
At first glance, the colours seem vivid and the expressions varied due to the tight composition, but on a closer inspection, the intricate elements become illuminated.
ACCENT cushion is made from 100% printed cotton and available in four colors, which work well alone but also complement one another. It is a compelling and eye catching piece, ideal to accompany any lounging area or relaxing space.
MARGRETHE ODGAARD is a strong figure in the new generation of textile designers in Denmark. After her graduation in 2005, she worked as a textile designer in Philadelphia and later Paris until setting up her own design studio in Copenhagen in 2013. She has received both national and international awards and recognition for her work with textiles, colors and patterns.
MARGRETHE ODGAARD ON HER DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“Have simplicity as a clarified vision. Look for fresh ways of combining and exploiting color. Make the process as important as the outcome. Share your knowledge, ideas and skills without hesitation. Be specific to order to become general. Use good tools and create new if necessary. Think through your hands. Free yourself from the limits of coolness. Allow things to evolve at their own pace. Listen. Laugh. Dance.”
MARGRETHE ODGAARD ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“The new generation of designers in Scandinavia know the history and craft of our culture, and in that knowledge, we find the keys to choosing the right solutions when making beautiful and functional products for everyday life.”
