With the sea as inspiration
When Vibeke Klint had to design a rug, she usually started with a watercolor sketch.
The blue color was characteristic of Vibeke Klint, who was inspired by the view from her home and workshop in Taarbaek directly to the see, and by the changing blue, green and gray shades of the sea and sky.
Her rug VK-2 from the late 1970s is a good example of this. The rug was designed in the same period as her rug VK-1, which she designed for The Danish National Bank, and is characterized by a tight, minimalist geometric pattern in white diagonal stripes on a colored background. The minimalist pattern seems very simple, but the simpler a design is, the harder it is to weave. Nothing can be hidden. Then as today, only the most skilled weavers are able to weave with the precision needed for the design to work as intended.
In close collaboration with the Klint family, NORDICMODERN has recently put the original VK-2 rug design into production as part of their collection of selected Vibeke Klint designs.
The rug is available in 3 sizes and 4 colors.
