Dezeen Showroom: Danish design studio Space Copenhagen has put a contemporary spin on the traditional kelim rug for Massimo Copenhagen, creating an accessory that adds texture to minimalist environments.
The Escape Kelim rug is handmade in India using the ancient flat-weaving technique that originated in the Turkish or Anatolian region, where the weft and warp threads are interwoven to create a flat finish.
Space Copenhagen's take on the style harnesses its organic aesthetic. The rugs are available with a fringe or a contrasting edge.
"We have always been very fascinated by the beauty and understated elegance of ancient flatweave Kelim Rugs – the subdued colour tones and the natural feel," said Space Copenhagen.
"Our wish has been to design a modern collection of minimal yet tactile and crafted rugs with subtle details – to support and enhance the warmth, softness, human layer and ambience in a modern space."
The Escape Kelim rugs are woven from 100 per cent undyed natural wool, making them durable, easy to maintain and naturally biodegradable and fire-resistant.
They are available in eight design variations in neutral hues of light grey and beige. There are five sizes ranging from 90 by 250 to 300 by 400 centimetres.
