Wallpaper* Design Award 2017
We are proud to announce that Landscape designed by Hella Jongerius for Danskina has received the Wallpaper* Design Award 2017 in the category best colada parlour.
Landscape is inspired by artists' attempts to render vistas of the natural world in paint. Designer Hella Jongerius has incorporated different yarns, pile heights and special edges in finer wool to give the feeling of "a paint brush on a canvas". The rug combines organic expanses with patterned swaths in an abstract simulation of unfolding terrain.
The melange yarn used to create the rug is spun from natural linen and wool, tufted in deep pile by craftsmen in India. The depth allows the melange to float, accentuating its intriguing texture and supreme tactility.
