Triangles by Bertjan Pot Studio for Golran
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
The Triangle collection by Bertjan Pot Studio for Golran, a family business with a long history in traditional handcrafting of Persian carpets, consists of four different models of carpets made with the KILIM technique, some of which are available in a variety of colors, all created with a new spirit incorporating ancient techniques into modern styles, and using the finest wools, silks, and natural materials. All styles start with an investigation into the weaving technique of the kilim in order to then emphasize the diagonal lines and horizontal features. The whole collection is based on the geometric form of the triangle, reiterated to form a grid of different patterns, from which ensue diamond and hexagonal shapes.
The colors’play pairs up slightly contrasting tones, creating woven kaleidoscopic rugs. This color harmony and pattern’s research perfectly links the historical background to this new contemporary context. To emphasize the geometries and plays of color, the designer has created poufs in different forms to be combined and contrasted with a carpet for a complete look corresponding to certain expressions of contemporary art.
