Description

Material research primarily determines all of Hella Jongerius’ designs. Her extensive portfolio includes single pieces exhibited at galleries, mass-produced items sold at retail stores, design of airliner interiors and even the redesign of the North Delegates’ Lounge at UN Headquarters in New York. Jongerius was just beginning her career when she was approached by Maharam to work on a project for its 100th anniversary. Today, she works as Maharam’s design director, and many of her textiles are found in the permanent collections at the Art Institute Chicago, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum and MoMA. Jongerius has a very clear idea of what makes a successful rug: “There are three components that have to make music together: interesting yarns, great construction and the right technique to give the pattern dazzling oxygen.” Her Argali Rug (2015) is handwoven by Nepalese weavers from argali wool, a Tibetan variety spun from wild Himalayan sheep. It’s marked by rich textural and chromatic variation, with an embellished block of color in one corner and silk-wrapped fringe on both ends. Made in Nepal.
