Heymat Loom Blue Doormat 85x115cm
High-quality door mat, with thick pile and rubberized backing from Norwegian Heymat.
Vera & Kyte have been inspired by sketches from Gunta Stolzl and Anni Albers, and created two door mats where the geometric composition is an abstraction of a weaving pattern and the rhythmic movement of a mechanical loom, hence "loom".
Gunta Stolzl was the first female teacher at the Bauhaus and is considered the most important artist and innovator in the field of weaving. In a design world dominated by men, the women were relegated to traditional weaving in their own "women's classes". Anni Albers was in her class and would develop into one of the most innovative textile artists of her time. She translated old weaving techniques into the modern design language that was so typical of the Bauhaus. Just like Gunta Stolzl, she also became one of the few women who taught at the male-dominated school. Gunta and Anni revolutionized this traditional craft.
