KATRIN GREILING: HAT-HAT

KATRIN GREILING- HAT-HAT refugium berlin

A piece of furniture created for both sitting and sleeping, and originally commissioned for the Wallpaper exhibition Handmade. Much on the move herself, and dividing most of her time between Sweden and Berlin, Greiling –who at that time also had a studio in Dubai- took her inspiration for this piece from the nomadic Bedouins’ way of furnishing their tents: “When a 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. (mb)www.katringreiling.com
