Sinuous

Simone Post’s first design for Kvadrat, Sinuous, is based on how certain colours create a visual “vibration” when placed next to each other. The result of a thorough research process, in which the designer made countless samples to find the perfect balance, this 100% wool rug is well-suited for both home and contract spaces.

Sinuous’s colour palette ranges from ecru, light grey, anthracite, and dark soil to hot yellow, red, and midnight blue. Bold and vivid strings are created by hand-twining bundles of smaller yarns in five different colours. These twisted bundles are woven together with small single yarns using the same colours to create different levels of colour mingling on the surface of the rug.

The overall effect is a shimmering pointillist rug; when seen from a distance the rug’s surface seems both warm and calm. Seen close up, the richness of all the different colour details becomes hypnotically apparent. Twisted fringes in varying densities emphasize its lively and playful look.

    A steel tumbler with rubber studs rolls freely in a rotating drum and wears the surface of the test samples inside of the drum. After 5.000 and 20.000 turns the sample is examined and rated by five inspectors based on the changes in its surface structure and colour.

    Rugs that meet the minimum requirements of the test are rated from 21 (worst) to 23 (best) for residential use and 31 (worst) to 33 (best) for residential and commercial use.

  • Fire tests Bfl-s1

    There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

  • LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

    Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

    The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

Characteristics

  • Irregularities will occur as a result of the hand made process 3 cm (1”) fringes on all sides, slightly irregular in top and bottom Rug underlay recommended Round or odd shape not possible
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Production time: 6 – 9 weeks

Care instructions rugs

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the rug looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the rug and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.

  • Stain removal

    Remove stains immediately. Place a clean, wet cotton cloth and leave it on the stain until it has absorbed it. If needed, dab the stain by working from the edge of the stain inwards. Do not rub to remove the stain. Bamboo viscose Do not walk on or rub a wet bamboo viscose rug, as this will damage the structure of the yarn. It will take a few days for a bamboo rug to fully dry. Silk rugs Every stain, including plain water, should only be treated with soda water. Vinegar or tap water should never be used. We always recommend professional cleaning of the rug when necessary.

  • Regular care

    Kvadrat rugs are made with care to last. To make sure your rug maintains its vitality and character over a long lifetime, it helps to take good care of it. We recommend vacuum cleaning your rug at least once a week using a vacuum cleaner set to medium power without applying a brush. Always vacuum in the direction of the pile. Please also rotate the rug frequently to prevent wear and fading in the same place. Ideally, the humidity in the room where the rug is located should be around 50%. If humidity falls below 40%, we recommend spraying your rug with water to avoid the yarn to become dry and brittle.
