Inspiring full harmony: New Floorwear® design from kymo brings the whole ocean to your feet
Water is our vitality and at the same time a wonderful calming force in hectic everyday life. This tension is the source of inspiration for the new Floorwear® by kymo: the soothing view of the water’s surface and the plunge into the depths of the sea. NEW WAVE and CORALS are the names of two hand-tufted designs in which kymo designer Katharina Tannous cleverly plays with material and light. Shiny viscose runs through the finest natural matt New Zealand wool – sometimes more subtly, sometimes more strongly – highlighting the patterns in a kind of optical illusion. This is reminiscent of how reflections change depending on the viewer’s position and the incidence of light.
NEW WAVE does not just take its name from the musical culture of the early 1980s. The new Floorwear® creation is reminiscent of the gentle play of the circular ripples that spread over the water’s surface when it rains. Katharina Tannous has captured the harmoniously flowing movements and overlapping shapes in all their dynamics. By somewhat offsetting the circles, she brings the surface to life. The tone-in-tone colour scheme of NEW WAVE emphasises the relaxing and at the same time inspiring atmosphere at the edge of a large lake.
CORALS, the second new kymo Floorwear® design, is inspired by the fascinating delicate structures of corals. It lets us dive into the mysteries below the water‘s surface with its meditative flair. The colour palette of CORALS reflects the intensity with which coral reefs present themselves in the depths of the sea, setting vivid accents.
