Design Group OLOOP


The design group Oloop was founded in 2003 by three textile designers and artists: Tjaša Bavcon (MA), Jasmina Ferček (MA) and Katja Burger Kovič (Assistant Professor at the University of Ljubljana). They work in many different fields of visual arts and design – product design, spatial design, textile art, participatory art, etc. In 2011 Oloop started to combine design with the social sphere. Contemporary textile art became a medium for connections, participation and personal or community empowerment. Oloop co-created with various vulnerable groups – women, immigrants and unemployed people. In this way, they raise awareness of the importance of craft and its impact on the well-being of individuals and communities.

Over the years, the Oloop group has participated in the most important Slovenian design exhibitions at home and abroad, winning international recognition and a number of prestigious awards, such as Red Dot Award and Alpine Pluralism Award. The following products – Woolen Soap, Flying Slippers and Squareplay – are part of the permanent exhibition at the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana.
