Handwoven Vibeke Klint rug designed in the late 1970s.
Materials: Weft in New Zealand wool, warp in linen with braided finishes.
The rug is reversible and can withstand even heavy use. 100% New Zealand wool has a high lanolin content, making the carpet naturally resistant to dirt.
Available in the orange/white/charcoal color combination with a pattern in light rose, light olive, and black. Offered in three standard sizes.
Can also be customized in special sizes.
For Vibeke Klint, it was important that there was consistency between quality, simplicity in the patterns and color choices.
Her work on the loom most often began with a drawing or a watercolor. It was her favorite starting point.
The watercolors were often provided with her notes, as here on her watercolor draft of the rug that later came to be called VK-8:
“This is very clumsy. It should be much more elegant and in other colors. ”
The VK-8 rug is woven in the “El Grecco” pattern, where the background is kept in white, slate black and orange fields. A pattern reminiscent of the Greek bent pattern or “running dog” in the colors black, light olive and pink runs throughout the rug and seems to change color, depending on whether they are seen on a white, slate black or orange background.
The rug VK-8 is from the late 1970s and was shown for the first time at Vibeke Klint’s solo exhibition at “Den Permanente” in Copenhagen in 1982.
In close collaboration with the Klint family, NORDICMODERN has recently set VK-8 into production as part of their collection of selected original Vibeke Klint rugs.
The VK-8 rug is one of Vibeke Klint’s most complicated and demanding designs, which can only be made by the absolute most skilled and professional weavers.
As Ole Paustian, founder of Paustian furniture store, said when he saw the rug: “That’s genuine art on the floor. No furniture should ever be placed on it!”
