Swedish designer Katrin Greiling presents Hat-Hat, a new piece of furniture for both sitting and sleeping, inspired by the bedouins way of furnishing their tents
The German-Swedish designer Katrin Greiling introduced her new design Hat-Hat at Wallpapers exhibition in Milan in April. HAT-HAT is a new seating furniture and Katrin’s intepretation of the camel saddle used by the Bedouins.
When the tent is set up and the carpets rolled out the saddle is taken off the camel and put inside the tent and functions as leaning support whilst sitting on the floor. The name Hat-hat derives from the phrase the Bedouins use to get the camels to move.
”To live in a foreign culture presents fantastic opportunities to apply my own Scandinavian expression on the new, the result is unexpected design related discoveries and subjective interpretations” says Katrin Greiling.
The structure, upholstered with soft fabric is a stackable stool. Over this base there is a mattress available to be rolled over, offering both bed space and seating on each side. The mattress can be stored inside the stool base.
Katrin Greiling, divides her time between Dubai and Stockholm, working with both Swedish and international producers. The sofa series Boduin, that she designed for Traffic was in March 2010 chosen as ”Furniture of the year 2010” by the Swedish
design magazine Sköna Hem. The collection was used in the United Emirates pavillion during the Venice biennal last year.
