History

A special gift for a special person is the story behind the VK-5 rug that Vibeke Klint weaved in the late 1940s. The rug was made in the post-war period, when there was a shortage of pretty much everything, so when Vibeke Klint was lucky enough to get a small batch of Norwegian wool, she weaved a rug for her mother. The rug has been in the family’s ownership ever since, and is today with Vibeke Klint’s eldest son, Peter Klint.

It can be said that the rug is now moving out of the Klint family’s home to be put into production in four sizes, so that it can embrace both the large dining table and the long corridor.

The rug is part of NORDICMODERN’s collection of original Vibeke Klint rug designs, selected in close collaboration with the Klint family.

The VK-5 rug is woven in double-woven New Zealand wool, which makes it extra soft and comfortable. A rug woven in solid yarns that contain a lot of lanolin, which makes it dirt-repellent, so that it can also lie in the busier areas of the home.

The rug VK-5 was the very first rug that Vibeke Klint designed, and is characterized by the fact that Vibeke Klint was inspired by her teacher, Gerda Henning, whose workshop Vibeke Klint took over in 1951 after Gerda Henning’s untimely death at the request of the husband of Gerda Henning, the famous sculptor Gerhard Henning. The rug consists of small square pieces in white and black that are connected all over the surface, so that it appears elegant and lifelike, but most of all so timeless that it is now put into production for the next generation.
