'Hat-Hat' by Katrin Greiling

Commissioned in connection to the Wallpaper exhibition “Handmade” in Milan, the German-Swedish designer Katrin Greiling created this new piece of furniture for both sitting and sleeping, inspired by the bedouins way of furnishing their tents: “when the 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.”

”To live in a foreign culture presents fantastic opportunities to apply my own Scandinavian expression on the new, the result is unexpected design related discoveries and subjective interpretations” says Katrin Greiling.

It is not the first time Katrin Greiling finds inspiration in nomadic culture. Deviding her time between Dubai and Stockholm, she is working with both Swedish and international producers. Her sofa Bedouin was for example used in the United Emirates pavillion during the Venice biennal last year.
