FROM THE SUN & TO THE MOON CUSHIONS BY LARA BOHINC

Hand tufted cushions with a mix of different wool grades and yarn types of highest quality. Selected elements are tufted using overspun felting yarn, with both cut and loop pile, creating a glorious bouclé loop texture. The patterns are chosen segments from the rugs with the same name and the color options are West of the Sun Rose and East of the Moon Rust. The characteristic bold lines run across the front of the pillow cases, displaying the ripples from the Zen sand. Circular elements are found at the edges contrasting against perpendicular lines, providing deliberate asymmetry and interesting contrast. A contradiction that creates harmony.

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
