d istinctly talented Swedish designer Lisa Bengtsson delivered her graphic design graduation project – the wallpaper Familjen – only a couple of years ago, and has since then received many awards for her adorable and clever designs (one of my favourites along the way has been the Ros-Marie wallpaper). Lisa Bengtsson derives inspiration from people around her and the atmosphere of bygone days. Now, as a mother of twins, she has pondered questions of family resemblance, similarities and differences. This has resulted in a brand new design, featuring a multitude of dachshunds!
These illustrations are sold (in limited editions) in cooperation with Save the Children Sweden – Design for Children’s Rights. The dachsies all originate from different corners of the world and the design shows that despite our differences and regardless of where we were born – we are all very much alike.
These sweet personalities also form a fun medallion pattern. Three of them in close-up, in either blue or gold, are available through textiles company Mairo as fabric by meter and as cushions. There is also a pattern with 12 dogs, which is also available in oilcloth. The pattern is called Tillsammans (Together). This one is definitely a new favourite!
