Sinuous

By 18-02-2019

Simone Post’s first design for Kvadrat, Sinuous, is based on how certain colours create a ‘visual vibration’ when placed next to each other. The result of a thorough research process, in which the designer made countless samples to find the perfect balance, this 100% wool rug is well-suited for both home and contract spaces.

Sinuous’s colour palette ranges from ecru, light grey, anthracite, and dark soil to hot yellow, red, and midnight blue. Bold and vivid strings are created by hand-twining bundles of smaller yarns in five different colours. These twisted bundles are woven together with small single yarns using the same colours to  create different levels of colour mingling on the surface of the rug.

The overall effect is a shimmering pointillist rug; when seen from a distance the rug’s surface seems both warm and calm. Seen close up, the richness of all the different colour details becomes hypnotically apparent. Twisted fringes in varying densities emphasize its lively and playful look.
