Designer Katrin Greiling utilized rugs and textiles from Swedish brand Kinnsand for the creation of a line of experimental furniture that builds on functional duality. The collection is named 'Structures,' and it puts practicality and aesthetic to the test. Katrin Greiling drew inspiration from Middle Eastern traditions. She was determined to create "something that could be considered furniture to either sit or lay on." As a result, the interior designer creates two types of frameworks and arranges rugs and textiles from Kinnsand on top of them.

The result is a line of experimental furniture that pushes the boundaries of form and understanding, offering up pieces that are ambiguous in their usage. 'Structures,' on display in Kinnsand's showroom, boasts a total of 11 objects and four different types of experimental furniture — ottomans, daybeds, benches and tables.
