“Every period has its own optical focus.” László Moholy-Nagy
László Moholy-Nagy painted Composition C XII in 1924, at the beginning of his teaching career at Bauhaus.
We will custom-dye twenty-five colour shades and then weave the premium yarn of your choice, knot by knot. The custom rug that we create from Moholy-Nagy’s artwork maintains its very balanced minimalistic industrial design and celebrates Bauhaus and design in your own home.
We will weave over 700 000 knots by hand to create this rug in the smaller size!
For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.
Delivery time for this rug is approximately 12 weeks, depending on the desired size.
• Technique: Tibetan handknotted in 100 knots per square inch.
In the Tibetan handknotted technique we follow the centuries-old handcraft tradition. We first set a vertical wooden loom, on which we stretch cotton warp threads from the bottom to the top in a continuous loop. We then make the knots around two warp threads and a metal rod. The knot count (80, 100 or 150 kpsi -knots per square inch-) states how many individual knots are made in one square inch. A higher knot count allows for more detail in the design while also resulting in a finer rug texture and a longer-lasting rug, as the knots are tighter and denser. Tibetan rugs are extremely high-quality and an wonderful example of pure handcraft.
• Material: New Zealand wool.
Pure New Zealand wool is a high-quality, resilient material that offers the brightest colour absorption and creates wonderfully soft rugs.
• Size: 187 x 240 (6.1 x 7.9 ft), 219 x 280 cm (7.2 x 9.2 ft) or 254 x 325 cm (8.3 x 10.7 ft) or contact us to request your bespoke size.
