Showcasing the best of British design and Norse mythology, the Yggdrasil rug collection, combines exquisite design, skilled craftmanship and delicate natural materials. In this collaboration the designer Yorgo Lykoria and the creative lead of Volver Ksenia Stanishevski have translated the visionary and bold designs into modern masterpieces.
Volver, which was introduced to Lykouria via the cross-cultural events, organized during the pandemic by the Design Dialogue UK and Norwegian Presence by Design and Architecture in Norway. They saw an opportunity to harness Lykouria’s multi-faceted approach with this exciting new partnership. The collaboration resulted in four rug design in tree color variations each
In their design discussions, Yorgo and Ksenia, challenged the limits of art, design and craft. The original sketches are intricate highly detailed abstract compositions inspired by the London graffities. They are organic, wild and dark. These qualities were translated and modified to create exquisite luxury rugs with richness of textures, elevations and colors.
The collection consists of four designs Yggdrasil, Urd, Verdande and Skuld. The rugs are hand tufted with an excellent level of detail, equal to the craft applied in houte couture.
This event brings together a selection of some of the best Norwegian manufacturers of contemporary retail and contract furniture and interior accessories.
