One of Europe’s leading house of textiles, Kvadrat has collaborated with designer Hella Jongerius to launch three new rugs – Cross collection, Landscape and Cocoon.
Landscape is inspired by artist’s attempts to render vistas of the natural world in paint. The rug combines organic expanses with patterned swaths in an abstract simulation of unfolding terrain.
Cocoon brings unexpected dimension to the classic woven rug. The designer sought to ‘create a layered and tactile woollen landscape with soft knots’, which are accentuated by a generous border.
These rugs have been hand-tufted by craftsmen in India using yarn spun from luxurious new wool and viscose. The specially developed anti-slip backing makes them suitable for a wide range of floors.
