Beuys-inspired: I Want To See My Mountains Divan by Lovisa Hansson, "a base for relaxation and reflection," is inspired by the work of German artist Joseph Beuys, and his first room-size installation of the same name (Voglio vedere le mie montagne), with shape taken from the Swiss Alps.

Details: In felt, polyether, and plywood. Beuys named his installation after the words of Italian painter, Giovanni Segantini, who asked on his deathbed in Switzerland to be moved the window to see the Alps. Beuys said, "When I make an environment called voglio vedere le mie montagne I mean an inner archetype of the idea of mountain: the mountains of the self."
