“Furniture dress the person wearing it”
The Danish designer Felicia Arvid, (born in Aarhus on the 26th of April 1994) began her creative path in dressmaking and fashion design and sold her first fashion designs to Japan at the age of 18. Wanting to explore other areas in the creative field she went to study Architecture at Glasgow School of Art.
Felicia Arvid’s approach to design is formed by her tactile experience from working with fabric and draping a flat material into three-dimensional shapes and exploiting the materials resilience to inform the shape. Her architectural experience gives clarity and constructional awareness including a sense of quality in materials and atmosphere through the development process.
Combining the approaches in to product design, creates a concept for uniting form, material, construction and function – always striving for reaching the surprising simplicity.
Fascinated by the contradiction between the unique and repetitive, Felicia Arvid’s designs show the result of an ongoing exploration of how the unique expression can be achieved when combined with repetition in shapes.
In 2018, Felicia Arvid exhibited at Salone Satellite which led to the collaboration with Caimi Brevetti and production of the acoustic panel Klipper.
After the exhibition, she was appointed by Marva Griffin, founder and curator of Salone Satellite, to be one of her candidates for the exclusive Hublot Design Prize 2018.
