“The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.” Wassily Kandinsky
Kandinsky painted his artwork Round Poetry in 1933, the year in which the Bauhaus dissolved and he moved to Paris. The original artwork is is currently in New York City at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and you can have it as a custom rug in your very own home.
We have the privilege to weave Kandinsky’s Round Poetry as a Tibetan handknotted custom rug in 150 knots per square inch for your home. This square rug will find its perfect spot in the living room or master bedroom.
In six different blues and greys, the softness of the frame and the industrial of the central drawing will come to life.
Almost one million knots are hand woven for this rug in the size 200 x 200 cm (6.6 x 6.6 ft).
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 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: 200 x 200 cm (6.6 x 6.6 ft) or 250 x 250 cm (8.2 x 8.2 ft) or contact us to request your bespoke size.
