Dezeen Showroom: graphic designer and illustrator Clara von Zweigbergk has created the Crochet rugs for Gan, combining the inherent warmth of the knitting technique with a playful approach to shape and colour.
The Crochet collection was born of von Zweigbergk's love for the knitting style and is inspired by traditional crochet rugs, shawls and oval mandala-style rugs.
Hand-sewn in India from virgin wool, the rugs explore unusual chromatic combinations and the innovative side of crochet through their two variants — an oval version with sections in five colours, and a triadic version that combines three of the oval rugs into one long row.
There are three colour options for the Crochet Mono rug — blue, pink or beige — and all three feature in the Crochet Trio. Both the Mono and Trio come in two sizes.
"A rug can really bring a room to life and make it more personal," said Zweigbergk. "My goal is for the Crochet collection, with its soft wool, to bring warmth and comfort."
"With its many colours, some quieter and others more intense, and the different sizes, it manages to make us feel at home in any space."
