A rug for Lillemor
The renowned architect Halldor Gunnløgsson (1928-1985) designed a house by the sea in Rungsted in 1958 for himself and his wife, Lillemor. The house is considered one of the most refined single-family houses of the period under the influence of American and traditional Japanese architecture.
The house consists of large windows from floor to ceiling, which are stretched between 2 brick gables. All walls are painted black, while the ceilings are in light pine moldings.
The house is listed and is part of Realdania´s collection of approx. 60 historic properties, which represent Danish building history through 500 years.
Vibeke Klint and her husband, Morten Klint, were close friends with the Gunnløgsson family, and when Halldor asked “Vibber” (Vibeke Klint) to design a rug for the house that would fit the black walls and gray-blue marble tiles on the floor, the result was the carpet VK-9. The rug combines a deep black base with her characteristic “lightning” details in pink, camel and white.
The rug VK-9 has recently been put into production by NORDICMODERN in close collaboration with the Klint family as part of NORDICMODERN’s collection of selected original Vibeke Klint rug designs.
The rug is available in 4 sizes: Runner 80×240 cm, small rug 140×200 cm, medium size 170×240 cm and 200×300 cm.
All rugs are hand-woven in New Zealand wool and felted English wool in warp-repp technique combined with details in flat weave.
