The Mikkel series combine inspiration from the Bauhaus movement and Norwegian traditional weaving on one side with a contemporary and exploratory use of color on the other. While working with the series, Melvær combined her two disciplines of industrial design and graphic design.
The series is made by the Norwegian manufacturer Røros Tweed. A carefully sorted blend of the finest Norwegian wool is carded, spun, twisted, dyed, woven and finished at their factories in Norway. The series consists of regular size blankets, children’s blankets, baby blankets and pillows. All of the products are available in four different color combinations.
The Mikkel blankets and Naturpledd blankets won Best Textiles in the 2015 ICFF Editor´s Awards.
