Designed by Mira Sohlen
Each tapestry is called Opus followed by its chronological roman numeral in the order they were created. Opus is a latin word meaning a work, used to mean a particular piece of music by a composer. Furthermore, when Mira creates her tapestries she never envisions the final outcome; her vision is her process. Throughout the process, similar to the one of a musical composer, she aims to find patterns of beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. It is as if different shapes are dancing and her aim is to capture just the right moment where Opus becomes a visual and tactile form of music.

About the designer
Mira Sohlén is a designer and artist based in Antwerp, Belgium. Originally from Sweden, Mira grew up in Paris and then studied fashion design both at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. She creates tapestries which are made from a unique method of tiling. Each tapestry is made from handmade tufted shapes in the finest wool (like mini-carpets), which are then sewn together. Inspired by improvised shape study, she continues to explores the infinitive interplay between positive and negative space.
