Bold, Duotone and Multitone

Bold
Bold is made using a combination of mechanical and hand-spun yarns resulting in
a thick, warm and expressive rug. Bulky and irregular in character, it is the epitome
of tactility, a quality that Hella believes to be ‘
the most important and best known
characteristic of a rug
’.

Bold is woven by skilled weavers from India and New Zealand using yarn that has
been dyed after it is twisted. This produces an interesting effect as the dye does
not penetrate completely to the yarn’s core.

With its sober colouring and simple but distinctive asymmetric design, Bold can make
a statement in a space helping to structure it and aid in the placement of furniture.

Duotone
The power of Duotone lies in its simplicity. Each rug is made using only two colours:
one for the weft and the other for the warp. It is the resulting mix of the two that gives
each piece its own identity.

This is the most simple flat woven basket construction; the archetype of weaving,’
says Hella Jongerius. In that way the design refers to Hallingdal, an iconic upholstery
fabric from Kvadrat, which is also a basket woven fabric and well known for being
available in a wide variety of duotone colourways. The different thicknesses of the
yarns and the contrasting colours lend the rug an appealing irregularity. Duotone
brings colour to a space but is never overpowering because the mix of the yarns
soften its intensity. It is hand woven by skilled weavers in India using New Zealand
wool.

Multitone
Multitone started life as a colour blanket, an evolution of the Duotone rug. The result
was so good that a rug was created based on the concept too.

Taking the same basic construction as the Duotone rug, Multitone is made by weaving
in multiple colours for a statement rug that energizes a space with its mesmerising
pattern. The rug is made using a simple flat-woven basket construction. The different 
thicknesses of the yarns and the contrasting colours lend the rug extra surface interest.
It is hand woven by skilled weavers from India using New Zealand wool.
