Kraka Concept Pillow


TYPE: Pillow

DATE: October 2015

MATERIALS: Cotton, Icelandic wool, sheepskin, zipper

DIMENSIONS: 60x60 cm

INFO: Kráka is a conceptual approach to the pillow as an object. By displaying all of the pillow's elements, the paradox of the pillow is the filling playing a double role as the surface.

Made for the permanent exhibition 'Danish Design Now' at Designmuseum Denmark.

The name Kráka refers to Queen Aslaug from Norse mythology, who according to Ragnar Lodbrock's Saga was tested for her wits and commanded to arrive neither dressed nor undressed, neither hungry nor full and neither alone nor in company. Kráka arrived dressed in a net, biting an onion and with only a dog as a companion.
