Bidjar by Jan Kath

New graphic floor coverings by Jan Kath, Nodus, Modallion and byHenzel.

1 Bidjar by Jan Kath 

Collaborating with a workshop in Nepal, Germany’s Jan Kath designs vibrant carpets that incorporate similar motifs as traditional Persian rugs – but he gives them a modern twist with a punch of colour. His works are hand-knotted in Tibetan highland wool, silk and nettle.

2 Quack by Nodus

From the always provocative Studio Job comes a circular floor covering that depicts a mash-up of the human anatomy. Its parts, including the heart, lungs and intestines, are hand-knotted in Nepalise wool. Look closer and find veins, a scattering of bones and medical tools.

3 Tree Vein by Modallion

Designer Robyn Waffle found inspiration for this piece from a photo of a tree taken through the shattered windowpane of rockabilly musician Ronnie Hawkin’s aging tour bus. Hand-knotted in wool and silk, the rug comes in custom colours.

4 Bleecker by byHenzel

Sweden’s Calle Henzel creates colourful carpets that often feature splashes of purple, fuchsia, tangerine and black in the forms of lyrics, maps and modelesque faces. This one is part of a collection that pays homage to the Big Apple with popular SoHo streets (Bleecker, Mercer, Wooster and Broome) spelled out in Helvetica.
