Caleido Collection Akira in Owl 8x10 Rug
This fun and whimsical piece from Battilossi has a mid-century feel with a modern approach to weaving rugs.
The idea behind the Caleido Collection is to create a line of rugs with an almost interchangeable quality while still maintaining the ability to stand apart in any decor. The simple linear shapes present create a stunning foil to the nuanced texture and feel that sets these textiles apart and has made them so popular with both clients and the design community. Battilossi themselves describe the simple patterns as an excuse for designers to play with texture and weaving technique in their concepts while providing an interchangeable medium that in turn becomes much more than just floor covering.
The Akira design in the Owl color way is a really interesting flat woven rug employing both texture and pattern to achieve an entirely new take on mid-century design.
When combined with Battilossi's original Gamla weave, which is a meeting of Scandinavian style knotting and Persian soumak style flat-weave techniques, a wholly unique three-dimensional rug surface is achieved.
