Lisa Bengtsson - SVÄRMOR
a new "family member" is here
Remember Lisa Bengtsson's beautiful wallpaper "the family"? now she done it again - her second wallpaper is called "svärmor" which means mother in law in Swedish. this is what Lisa says about the wallpaper.
There is something special about a pair of shoes. It’s an accessory we always need to wear, which changes its appearance depending on where we go. Each shoe breaths a history of our life - some of them stay forever, others leave only a footprint behind. What I like the most about shoes is their profile, silhouette and the relationship between its shape and shadow. “Svärmor” brings to mind the issue of our consumption society and ask the question; do we really need so many new pair of shoes each season?
Maybe we do, this wallpaper is a contribution to all the shoe lovers out in the world.
But why the name mother in law?
Well, mother in law is also a happy family member.
