Description

Finarte’s Akaatti rug adds a bold dash of modern Finnish design to any space. Conceived by design duo Juslin Maunula, the hand-tufted rug features a simple yet striking geometric pattern and a gorgeous, pleated surface structure that changes direction in different parts of the rug. The rug is handmade in India.

Typically for Juslin Maunula, the inspiration for the Akaatti rug’s design comes from the realms of fashion and architecture: pleated fabrics and fluted stones and tiles. The tactile design is accentuated by not only the bold color choices but also the overall layout – the composition of the color blocks highlights the direction of the pleats. Additionally, the design is informed by the works of color theorist Josef Albers and architect Carlo Scarpa, who has also influenced the name of the rug: Akaatti is Finnish for agate, a stone Scarpa often favored in his designs.

The Akaatti rug is part of Finarte’s Galleria collection. With this collection, Finarte was the first in Finland to begin collaboration with TrusTrace, a digital platform for product traceability and transparency. The rugs have a QR code that you can scan to trace the journey of the rug from material to final product.

Juslin Maunula

Juslin Maunula is a Finnish design studio and brand founded by fashion designer Laura Juslin and architect Lilli Maunula. The multidisciplinary studio draws on the backgrounds of both designers, building a bridge between fashion and architecture – the studio's works are influenced by both worlds, be it a clothing line, an installation or a jewelry collection.

Juslin Maunula is not only a design studio but also a clothing brand whose clothes have been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga and seen on the pages of Vogue magazines in Italy and China. In addition to their own brand, the duo has collaborated with Marimekko and Peacebird, among others. Juslin Maunula has also designed jewelry for Kalevala Koru, rugs for Finarte and an installation called Changing Rooms for Artek's Helsinki flagship store for Helsinki Design Week 2019. In 2022, Juslin Maunula received the Young Designer of the Year prize awarded by Design Forum Finland.
