Design House Stockholm - Uman Rug
Uman is the Sami word for Ume lv, the river that runs straight through northern Sweden. Just like the river, Uman demands space. It wants to be seen. One could say that Uman is a colourful cousin of the Bjrk rugs. You can see the family resemblance in the leather edging and the flat textile surface. The Lena Bergstrm's inspiration comes in part from the use of colours in Sami culture, which has been blended with her own palette. You could say that Uman is a multicoloured, minimalist, wool rag rug.
