Hand knotted carpet with stripes
For Normann Copenhagen the designer Simon Legald has created the carpet series Oona designed: Hand-knotted carpets in clear, graphic design. Oona plays with shapes and contrasts. Clear lines and soft curves create three unique carpet shapes - and they are neither round nor rectangular. A deeper woven strip in a darker shade is a graphic design element of the otherwise single-coloured carpets.
Simon Legald often focuses on the details in his designs. At Oona he has, for example, designed the radius of the corners differently for all three carpets, thus varying the formal language, but retaining the visual coherence. Simon Legald explains: "I tried to design a carpet where the decorative element is achieved primarily through the design. As a small detail, the concise, straight stripes underline the shape of the carpets. It creates asymmetry and is a visual contrast to the soft curves of the edges".
New Zealand wool in different sizes
Normann Copenhagen produces the Oona made from 100% New Zealand wool. Oona is available in three sizes. The carpets can be used in many different ways, for example in the dining room, under the coffee table, next to the bed or as a connecting element in a foyer or large hall.
