Heritage 1, Ghashgha'i meets Bauhaus, SoFarSoNear Studio, Super Fine Gabbehs

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    The extensive use of geometrical and abstract patterns together with the vivid naturally dyed colours of Ghashgha’i weavings have analogies with the studies and learnings of the Bauhaus movement, in particular, with one of its key masters, Josef Albers. He studied in depth the interaction of colour and human perception. His paintings and artworks with squares reminded the designers of this collection of the geometries of Gabbeh carpets and the colour interaction between the single elements woven into them. In Albers’s universe, colour seduced, beguiled, swindled, and these characteristics made colour the most fascinating of art’s formal elements. This concept is at the very heart of this new collection. SoFar SoNear, Milan, designed this collection choosing iconic Ghashgha’i motifs that they simplified using squares and triangles. The lion, the peacock, woman and man are the motifs they drew upon merging the style of Gabbehs with the drawings of Albers. The finest highland wool from the Zagros Mountains, hand-carded and hand-spun, is used to weave these joyously coloured collection - all dyed using natural vegetable dyes.
