Colour Design Product: Carpet collection with Volver Dahlia and Rosé
In collaboration with Volver Studio, Koi Colour Studio has designed two distinctive carpets with complex colour palettes. The aim of the project is to inspire the use of more colours and art in interior design, both in private and public spaces. The composition was created by Ksenia Stanishevski and the colour design is by Dagny Thurmann-Moe, who had overall direction.
Dahlia is inspired by the colours of this wild and delicate flower. We were inspired by modern architecture and 1930s functionalism to create an urban mood by using abstract patterns based on geometric and fluid forms. Tile red, dark brown, reddish brown, and plum are finely intertwined with a layer of cadmium orange and pitch black, which accentuates the generally warm tone of this carpet. See product >>
With its soft shapes and floral powdery pink expression, Rosé gives us a playful and somewhat ironic sense of femininity. While Dahlia is bold and geometric, Rosé is softer. When the forms are combined together they create something entirely unique – something different. Soft shapes in colours such as champagne, dusty pink, cherry blossom, old pink, latte and jasmine are in sharp contrast to the deep reddish browns and reds that put the icing on the cake.

These carpets are hand-woven using natural wool and Tencel, and are manufactured in India. The surface is finely textured and can be cut with scissors to enhance sharpness and quality.
Another feature is that they are highly durable and recyclable, and are suitable for both private homes and public spaces.
The collection was launched at the Oslo Design Fair, August 28 – 30 in booth C01-38.
