Petra Börner grew up in a small town in Sweden and her Scandinavian roots are present in her work.
She started her career at a Stockholm animation studio and developed her drawing style through collaborations with magazines during her fashion studies at Central St Martins in London. Without formal training in illustration within an increasingly digital market, she’s established her work using a hands-on approach, often involving collage or basic embroidery.
Bridging illustration with fashion & lifestyle design, her work features in fashion and interior design, as well as on book covers and publications worldwide.
Now based in London, she divides her time between the continued demand for commissioned artwork, whilst further developing her own work and product range.
The rug, designed by Petra Börner in collaboration with Made by Node, is titled ‘Klang’. The Swedish title translates as ‘tone’, referring to a colour or a happy sound. The rug is created to add a ‘Klang’ to your home and put a smile on the users face. The original artwork was cut in paper, before being interpreted into the handmade rug design.
