Maja Svensdotter combines her background in furniture design and cabinet making with her education in spatial design to create sculptural pieces of upholstered furniture. She experiments with patterned fabrics, mainly ticking, cutting through the stripes and patching them back together, letting them meet in other ways than they met in the loom. In this way she composes her own patterns, at times psychedelic, at times subtle offsets. Form and surface are intimately intertwined. For her exhibition at Fiberspace, Maja is producing entirely new work inspired by totem poles and mummified Egyptian cats.Read more

Karine Jollet is a French artist who lives in Paris. Her textile sculptures and installations focus on the body in its multiple dimensions. She uses old fabrics that are then stitched by hand and filled with polyester. Her universe is composed of heads, arms, feet, organs, bones, mythologic animals, trees, connected human figures etc... White is the unifying base for the physical to the symbolic in an allegoric vision of life.Read more
Malin Bobeck is a textile designer and artist, 29 years old, based in Stockholm. Her works currently evolve around light emitting textiles, specializing in weaving with optical fibers. In December 2015 she was awarded the “Encouragement of research” from the Sten A Olsson foundation, with the motivation: "For those who are accustomed to thinking of the woven fabric as something quiet and controlled, the encounter with Malin Bobeck’s work will be bewildering. Her textiles careen, sparkle and switch between different moods. They arouse curiosity and invite us to be tactile. In her still young artistic practice, Malin Bobeck aims to create changing spatial structures in which the latest lighting and interactive technology is combined with handicraft. She is part of a broad movement in craft and design that combines traditional methods with contemporary technology, in an inquiring and inclusive way. Her approach rejuvenates the craft and also creates a new and exciting context for the achievements of engineering science."Read more
