The 2018 collection from the Kasthall design studio is based on the theme Legacy of Tomorrow, crafting tomorrow’s design heritage today. In this collection, Kasthall has developed new yarn qualities and innovative weaving and tufting techniques. Unique craftsmanship, like embroidery and sketching, has both inspired and been a part of the design process, which is reflected in the new Diamond rug, being launched during the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018.
In Legacy of Tomorrow, the theme of the 2018 collection, Kasthall began a dialogue between the past and future of the company, in which a love of textile history and natural materials have been guiding lights. With the ambition to craft beautiful rugs in high-quality material in an array of sophisticated colours, Kasthall has created a collection that calls upon the viewer to experience tomorrow’s legacy today. The resulting collection has an artistic simplicity that challenges earlier production methods.
Drawing inspiration from exclusive embroidery and haute couture, the new hand-tufted Diamond rug is handcrafted in wool and linen. Lines and tuft stitching in contrasting colours are imbedded in a structured surface of cut pile and bouclé loops. Like a mirror image, the line play breaks up the underlying pattern, creating an air of elegance and precision.
Diamond is a hand-tufted rug with an abstract pattern that draws inspiration from haute couture. Designer Maja Johansson Starander at the Kasthall design studio, in collaboration with product developers, sketched and experimented on the tuft weave itself. The aesthetic expression has slowly emerged as a part of this creative experiment.
