Description

Volta is a hand-knotted rug that embodies a timeless aesthetic language, inspired by visual memories and chromatic harmonies of Mediterranean lands.

It translates architectural shapes into a simple rhythmic layout and a strong tactile finish. Golden arches draw a soft change of glow, creating depth juxtaposing different types of fibers. Soft yarns and rough surfaces are carefully combined to create a multilayered effect, using traditional Tibetan knot techniques. The high pile arches laying on top of a flat base gives the impression that one carpet rests on top of another. The richness in structures and materials describes the virtuosic of technical artisanal knowledge and aims to elevate tactility.

Volta is hand-knotted in the highest quality in Nepal (A : 152.000 knot/sqm).

About the designer


A. Vetra

A. Vetra is a project that explores the virtues of structures and materiality. 

A. Vetra was founded in 2019 by Giulia Ferraris, an Italian multidisciplinary designer with a special attraction towards textile, tactility, and crafts. In her interdisciplinary exploration, traces of the past and modern visions engage in a tactile conversation, seeking a balance between our cultural heritage and contemporary aesthetic approaches. As objects and textile editor, A.Vetra creates limited-edition collections and one-off pieces, praising the beauty of folk culture and Mediterranean imaginary through collaborations with artisanal identities.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
