RUG ART BY JAN KATH
THE LITTA VARIATIONS / 4th Movement – Palazzo Litta, Corso Magenta 24, Milano
In collaboration with: Jan Kath
Jan Kath has created some of the world‘s most in demand designs in hand-knotted carpets for private residences, corporate headquarters, boutique hotels, and luxury fashion brands. Breaking with conventional styles and throwing strict design rules overboard, classic elements from oriental carpets are combined with contemporary, minimalist design.
At Litta Variations, Jan Kath presents the latest abstracts of the Polonaise, Erased Heritage and Artwork collections. At the vanguard of the modern carpet, the German designer’s interpretations have an unmistakable signature style. Jan Kath carpets are made of hand-combed and hand-spun Tibetan highland wool, Chinese silk, and stinging-nettle fibres, and produced in a traditional manufacturing process, woven by hand. Award-winning designs, Jan Kath carpets also feature in museums that showcase art and design, such as the Frankfurt Museum of Applied Art, the Beijing International Design Triennial, and the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich.
