'Frisian Wouw' by Claudy Jongstra for Ruckstuhl

The Swiss carpert manufacturer Ruckstuhl presented at this year’s Salone del Mobile an Edition of remarkable new creations. Amongst them ‘Frisian Wouw’ a felt carpet designed by Claudy Jongstra. It is distinguished in particular by its irregular contours and wild, frenzied texture.

'Pompom' by Hugo Zumbühl for Ruckstuhl

“The starting point for Zumbühl’s contribution to Edition Ruckstuhl was once again a material discovery. The backing fabric for the Pompon carpet with its dense white tuft is made of chenille yarn, a particularly plush wool thread that has practically disappeared from the market. Pompoms stitched in at regular intervals animate the surface structure and provide colourful accents.”

“The ‘Dessus Dessus Dessous’ carpet, which has been woven from strips of linen, can be traced back to a textile installation entitled “Plier – Entrelacer – Superposer” (Fold – Weave – Overlap) which Atelier Oï created for Designers Saturday 2008 in Langenthal at the invitation of Peter Ruckstuhl. The starting material for this work, which was nominated for the Design Preis Schweiz 2009 award, was provided by the strips of linen that are normally used for the carpet trim. The transformation from an experimental exhibition installation to a product for Edition required both the refinement of technical aspects and an upgrading of the graphic design.”
