The Varjo rug by Muuto is designed by Tina Ratzer and is made from 100% New Zealand Wool. The word Varjo means Shadow in Finnish, which is a hint towards how the woven texture creates a sense of shadow and light within the weave.
With a unique pattern and discreet color-blocking, the Varjo rug will add colour and texture into a space that needs a certain warmth and depth. Made from Wool, this rug is hardwearing and is made to last when well taken care of.
The Varjo is also naturally sound dampening, and will improve the acoustics of a space that is filled with hard surfaces.
Tina Ratzer is a Danish designer with a degree in textile design and weaving, from the Design School Kolding, in Denmark. In 1999, Tina founded her own studio Ratzer, and since then her designs have been selected for several exhibitions, such as the Crafts and Design Biennale in Rundetårn, Copenhagen. Her work is characterized by a geometric expression and a balanced colour scheme, with a twist or a surprising detail that lets the techniques of the craftsmanship step forward and become an important part of the work.
