The Björk rugs and their patterned structure offer a modern and enriched textile quality, hand in hand with a stylish and protective leather edging. Lena Bergström’s conviction is that the flat textile surface of a rug is just as natural in the home as stone and wood. “To me, the rugs are poetry, like a quiet whisper within the room.”

Lena is devoted to surfaces, both when she works with textiles and as one of the leading glass designers at Orrefors. She draws inspiration from the rough black and white graphical structure of the birch tree’s trunk. The color tones of Björk create a marbled effect through a warp of cotton intertwined with a weft in wool, known not only for its softness, but also for its in-built resistance to dirt.

“Björk is the Swedish word for birch, a tree that is found all over Sweden and is the symbol of Umeå, the town I grew up in,” adds Lena, who has won the excellent Swedish Design award several times.
