Opiumbeds is a sofa/sculpture made by the danish artist Tal R.
The sofas are produced in Denmark by Tal R and his team:
Allan Lyth, Jens Stampe Brøndbjerg and Karen Bjelke.
They are made from new, old and vintage rag rugs found in Denmark
and in the rest of Scandinavia.
Each rag rug has been elaborated in the studio.
Some has been dyed, others has been painted and some remain untouched.
Independent of the form all the sofas has a unique finger joint
constructed wooden frame, are covered with foam and padded
with rag rugs.
At last the rag rugs are attached with cotton string
to the wooden construction.
Each sofa has a name, a number and signed by Tal R.
