DESIGNERS’ Ami Katz FRAMMENTO

Designed by Ami Katz who describes her work ”Fragments and drawings have always fascinated me. There is something appealing in what is unfinished. Therefore an embroidery that was started but not finished and an old half finished drawing became the starting point for the creation of the rug, Frammento. The insight of the extraordinary skills of the weaving atelier and the endless possibilities that these skills allow, further inspired me. In Frammento many layers work together. The warp changes colour from white, to natural, to brown creating a base of three blocks of stripes in various shades of white. The actual pattern also changes, beginning with a complete pattern in turquoise, green and brown on one side of the rug and gradually fading out the further to other side you look. The circular segments, adjusted into the different colour segments of the warp, are made up by distinct bouclé dots in the parts where the pattern is complete and more sketch-like, as if they were pencilled in, in the sketchier parts. The turquoise pattern, and the parts in between, co-vary with the circles and are alternately woven in wool felt rags and wool yarn to give the surfaces texture and colour variations. All of these factors contribute to enforcing the sketchy expression”.

DESIGNERS’ Eva Schildt ROSE

This is the first design made exclusively by Eva Schildt for Vandra Rugs. Growing up on an island in the Stockholm archipelago, the sea and the rugged island environment are constant companions in Eva Schildt’s artistic practice. Since graduating in Furniture and Product Design from Beckmans College of Design, Stockholm, in 2001, Schildt has designed everything from furniture to textiles, packaging and trade fair showcases. She also works as an interior architect. Eva Schildt’s playful approach to everyday life and her warm personality are inherent in her designs, which are available in many countries. Currently based in Stockholm she has previously lived in Tokyo and collaborated with many Japanese companies. Eva Schildt is represented at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg. The design Rose is a wool rug woven in single-weave with a section of hand-tufted irregular dots at each end. ”The design consists of two form elements – order and disorder. I like to find the perfect balance between them” says Eva Schildt. The design fits runners as well as larger rugs and is offered in Vandra Rugs’ full range of wool yarn colours and neutrals.

DESIGNERS LARS NILSSON LONGHI

Longhi is the second graphic color blocking rug inspired by Italian masters from Venice. ¨The Rhinoceros¨ by Pietro Longhi was the inspiration for the ¨Longhi¨ rug design with its very soft, subtle colour palette combined with unexpected colours and proportions. The Longhi rug is woven in a modern tapestry technique. The stripes alternate in colour from soft, muted pale jade to stripes of red, coral and crimson along with a few accents of natural non-dyed sheep fur. The dark copper red and burgundy coloured stripes contribute to the graphic look in the otherwise softer aqua palette. The result is a playful and modern design. Design by Lars Nilsson.

DESIGNERS LARS NISSON TIEPOLO

Tiepolo the first in the new series of graphic and colour blocking rugs with inspiration from Venice and old Venitian master painters. ¨Rinaldo Enchanted by Armida¨ by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo was the starting point for the design¨Tiepolo¨. With a very refined and subtle colour palette in clay, taupe and moss with descriptive colour accents and bold proportions. The Tiepolo rug is woven in a modern tapestry technique. Designed stripes alternating between wool yarn in soft, muted colours with an edge of vivid red and turqouise and natural non-dyed sheep fur. The accent of strong colours in the otherwise monochrome palette together with the fur creates a graphic and playful modern design. Design by Lars Nilsson.

DESIGNERS’ LARS NILSSON SNOW & COAL

The design SNOW & COAL was inspired by a black and white photograph of my grandparents from 1917 in the warm morning light with the fresh snow in Dalarna. Lars Nilsson, born in Stockholm, Sweden, is a fashion designer and fully integrated member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America who has worked with several major fashion houses, including Christian Lacroix, Balmain, Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, Bill Blass, and Nina Ricci.
