After Albers Cornflower is a geometric blue rug with a highly contemporary feel. The abstract and highly imaginative design of the rug plays with planes of bold colour overlapping and blending to create a complex, yet harmonious mix of hues.
The resulting composition is a fascinating piece of floor art that creates a warm serenity to complement classic and modern interiors alike. The thick natural wool fibre, along with the canvas applied to the back of the piece, make it extremely efficient for noise cancelation, as the fibre soaks up sound and turns vast modern interiors into comfortable homes.
The After Albers rug series has been inspired by the beautiful interplay of shape, shifting depth and changes in tone characterised by the work of abstract artist and influential colorist Josef Albers. The painter’s geometric abstraction and colour studies present a constant fascination from both a design vision and structural a perspective.
Details and design
After Albers blue rug has been expertly crafted out of a series of dynamically arranged rectangular shapes. In the “Cornflower” version of the design Sonya uses her knowledge of colour to layer cornflower blues, deep purples and rich greens that interact with one another to create new hues with a sense of depth and tranquility. The colour layering is further emphasised by varying pile heights and hand carving of the rug which give the piece a sculptural quality.
Albers Cornflower blue rug is ideal for any dining room, entrance hall, kitchen, living room or bedroom.
