The Varjo rug is design by Tina Ratzer for Muuto. Tina Ratzer’s design concept was to twist the uncomplicated herringbone weaving pattern into a new simple look by developing it into stripes of variable widths. After early sketches, the next step in the process of the Varjo rug was to make a straighter composition. Tina printed out various stripes in the correct scale for weaving and then cut them into different widths to compose the variable herringbone pattern. Tina worked with layers of colours in order to give the Varjo rug more depth. From a distance the rug appears to look like a simple rug in three colours, however when closer, new layers appear in the weaving. Shades of blue, grey, sand or tangerine merge into one another. This is why Tina named the rug "Varjo“, which means Finnish for shadows. The next stage was to transform the colours from the paper sketches into a dyed wool system. Finally after half a year, the very first prototypes of the Varjo rug were made. Tina Ratzer says: “It was a great day finally getting to see my work in a woven quality. Some adjustments later we are here today, where the rugs have now been launched by Muuto!”. Tina has a background as a weaver and her inspiration for the Varjo rug is derived from the weaving technique. Her aim is to link the expression of a woven fabric with the technique itself. “The idea was to create a geometric rug with multiple layers and dimensions. I wanted to give the first layer an easy understandable language and balanced colour scheme. When you go one layer deeper a dynamic herringbone pattern arises and brings a new dimension and a surprising twist to the rug. Varjo is Finnish for shadow, which translates to the shadow effects that are created between the layers, as the darkest colour block almost rises above the others, creating a three-dimensional expression.” Cleaning instructions: For regular cleaning, vacuum the rugs. Clean stains instantly with sparkling water. The rugs should be turned every 6 months for maintenance purposes.
