Kristiina Lassus has always been fascinated by ornamentation and its universality across different cultures. The design of her Koy rug has its origins in African patterns but also draws inspiration from Finland’s national epic, the Kalevala. These combined influences result in a pattern that evokes a wide range of ornamental design motifs such as National Romantic eclecticism, Gothic elegance, Islamic geometry and the Hannunvaakuna, an ancient Northern European symbol of good fortune. The distinctive rhythm of Koy’s design is well suited to both decorative and modern interiors.
