Wassily Kandinsky Composition X Rug
“Color provokes a psychic vibration. Color hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body.”
Kandinsky painted Composition X in 1939, with the most imaginative shapes and colours soaring in a sky of black. We have had the privilege to turn it into one of the most incredible custom rugs. And now you can have it in all its daring boldness. Elevate your home life experience to this whole new level of connection with art.
We will dye the yarn in 40 custom colours for your rug. And then finely weave over 1.3 Million Tibetan knots to create this unique rug for your home.
Even if the original artwork is currently in Düsseldorf, Germany, at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, you can have it handwoven as a custom rug in your very own home.
For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.
Delivery time for this rug varies between 12 and 14 weeks, due to the many different colours and the ellaborate weaving of all the details.
• Technique: Tibetan handknotted 150 kpsi.
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: 300 x 200 cm (9.8 x 6.6 ft), 400 x 267 cm (13.1 x 8.8 ft) or 500 x 330 cm (16.4 x 10.8 ft), or contact us to request your bespoke size.
Please note that the sizes and the colours may vary within a 5% margin, due to the completely handmade process and natural materials.
