Nytt Rom February issue
Designer Carsten Nielsen started Bycdesign Studio in 2016, and works interdisciplinary in graphic design, illustration, styling and photography from the headquarters in Aalborg. Inspired by architecture, geometry and Nordic colors, he has made a number of prints based on simple shapes and lines sold through his website, which are now being converted into carpets in collaboration with Nordic Knots.
- I’m fascinated by the simple lines that help create a new object, says Nielsen. – The idea behind my work is a tribute to organic shapes and figures, and the simple lines compel me to think of art in a new way. In collaboration with Nordic Knots I have created three different rugs, all based on my illustrations.
The Swedish family company Nordic Knots was founded on the idea of creating traditional, functional design with a minimalist aesthetic. The idea was to create timeless rugs with a focus on Nordic patterns and high craftsmanship, and have international Goodweave certification which means that the products are created under ethical conditions free from, for example, child labor.
