NORTH POLE WALLHANGING

A hand tufted wallhanging in pure wool with an element of linen and fringes in 100% pure linen. As one would expect, the names derive from the semicircular crest of blonde brass, below which bold lines of black are found together with an exciting mix of geometric shapes in varying sizes and colors. At the bottom of the wallhanging (at the fringe of the world), linen fringes of different lengths in rose, black and earth colors stretch in the direction of gravity. A masterful piece of decorative art with strong Bohinc identity.

LARA BOHINC

Lara Bohinc’s talent for creating products with timeless modernity have made her one of the most innovative and successful designers of her generation. For Kasthall, she has created the collection From the Sun to the Moon in 2019.

Lara Bohinc MBE studied Industrial Design at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts, followed by MA in Metalwork and Jewelery at Royal College of Art London. After graduation, she won British Fashion Council’s New Generation Award and launched her own studio. She was design consultant for many luxury brands, amongst them Montblanc, Gucci and most notably Cartier, a position she held for over a decade.

A mark of her work is versatility. A passionate believer in the universality of good design, she always looks to bridge the divide across different mediums of furniture, objects jewelery and textiles.

Bohinc’s ability to create work with iconic beauty is rooted in her familiarity with materials and manufacturing approaches. While retaining a deep respect for the traditional principles of her craft, she has also drawn on her knowledge of industrial techniques, fusing modernity of style with function, to achieve a contemporary elegance. The same principles apply in all of her designs – use of the finest materials, and an obsession with deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form. Overall, Bohinc’s signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine
