First out were the carpets Peacock, Kate and Naomi. Now the second part of the collection is launched - Feather, Doris and String in new designs with the collection Collective Impressions. The collection is available for purchase now at the Kasthall Flagship Store & Showroom. - We never stop looking ahead, but to know where to go, you must also understand our origins. Therefore, we make an impact in history and reflect on the future this year. We have been inspired to seek and explore who we are and have been through the ages. We have a responsibility for the future and we want a sustainable one and balanced way to develop new products and create tomorrow's classics, says Lena Jiseborn, Design Director.
Feather is a tufted rug in wool and linen designed by Kasthall Design Studio and Ellinor Eliasson. The rug is produced in wool and linen bouclé in two heights with a high playful linen fringe around the rug that changes in a toning. Feather was awarded a prize during the Wallpaper Design Award 2020. Like the boor and lashes of the 70s, the design is a playful grip where the ruffled linen fringe gives the carpet a daring playfulness without compromising elegance. The idea for the bottom pattern and design originally came from an observation of the feathers on the penguin's belly where layer-on-layer goes tone-on-tone to create a vibrant feel in different color schemes for exclusive environments, conscious interiors and individual homes with attitude. Collective Impressions introduces Feather in two new colors in addition to the existing four.
Doris and String
Doris and String are based on the same yarn, technology and colors. The popular classic Doris has received a color update, String is an old pattern taken from Kasthall's archive that has been given new life. They are woven in the same quality; 100% wool chenille, and based on the same color scale. New colors of chenille yarn have been developed, where we have captured the modern in exciting patterns. The new collection introduces five new colors and together with the existing one, there are now a total of six colors to choose from.
Doris is a woven rug in pure wool that has been combined with two of Kasthall's unique yarns - the fluffy chenille the yarn that creates the rug pattern and its classic wool yarn, which is used in many of their woven rugs. Doris is designed by Kasthall Design Studio and Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg. The geometric pattern with dots in a row for the idea of a soft pebble beach and the surface of the carpet gives a tactile, attractive and beautiful structure.
Design-awarded String (Excellent Swedish Form 1988) has a Manchester stripe that flirts with the popular 70's trend. String's expression of artistic minimalism is highlighted through playful proportions and materials. Through experimenting with new yarn colors in combination with existing colors, Kasthall has strived for new expressions where the carpet finds where it thrives best; in a home environment such as a bedroom or living room.
