VARJO Rug

 

design Tina Ratzer, 2014

On the design of Varjo Rugs, Tina Ratzer explains : “The idea was to create a geometric rug with multiple layers and dimensions. I wanted to give the first layer an easy understandable language and balanced color scheme. When you go one layer deeper a dynamic herringbone pattern arises and brings a new dimension and a surprising twist to the rug. 

Varjo is Finnish for shadow, which translates to the shadow effects that are created between the layers, as the darkest color block almost rises above the others, creating a three-dimensional expression.” 

The Varjo rugs are hand-woven from 100% New Zealand lambswool. Pads to place under the rugs can prevent gliding and protect them (sold separately).

Dimensions 170 x 240 cm and 200 x 300 cm

Matière 100% New Zealand lambswool
