Oceania coral rug

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    The Oceania rug collection consists of the series Coral and Seabed and has clear references to the dynamic life and organic forms below the sea surface. The two rugs in the Oceania series have obvious references to water - to the coral reef's hidden life below the waterline and to the cracks and fissures in salt marshes, dried sand or the parched earth's crust.

    Naja Utzon Popov

    Naja Utzon Popov inherited her creative genes from her grandfather, Jørn Utzon, a Danish architect known for designing the iconic Sydney Opera House in Australia; her mother, prominent Danish artist Lin Utzon; and her father, acclaimed Australian architect Alex Popov. Naja's childhood years in Denmark have always been an important source of inspiration for her work, as were the years she spent in Australia studying drawing, painting and etching at the Julian Ashton Art School. After moving to England, Naja continued her formal artistic training at the University of Westminster School of Media Arts and Design. Today, she lives in her native Denmark and works out of her studio in Copenhagen. Thanks to her family background, Naja has always been exposed to contemporary design. These influences find expression in her work, where she translates her encounters with nature into textiles, glassware, ceramics and sculptures. By adding her own personal touch to works that beautifully combine contemporary design with Mother Nature's gifts, Naja carries on the family tradition of creating outstanding art. Naja's approach has brought her great success and her designs have been well received in New York at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), where she exhibited a large-scale clay installation that was purchased by the iconic Saks Fifth Avenue department store. Her glass and ceramic designs appear all over the world, including at the Feng Sushi restaurant chain in London and galleries, such as the Galeria Kunstmann in Mallorca.
