Invited by Syrusson DesignHouse to show my latest creation “Sleipnir” at their stand at Hafnarhus Reykjavik Art Museum at the DesignMarch 2016.
This time I decided to look for inspiration in our heritage and chose the eight legged horse “Sleipnir” that belonged to Odin the Norse god. I desited to dig deeper and did some research on Viking fibulas and other jewlery. The outcome was this purple rug “Sleipnir” in solid colour of purple with heavy cutting and finishing by hand as usual.
Following photos show the work progress leading leading up to the DesignMarch.
We at Shanko Rugs are over the moon to be part of Florence Design Week 2015. The rugs will be displayed at the beautiful Grand Hotel Minerva, Florence.
