Finarte’s Ruusukvartsi rug adds a bold dash of modern Finnish design to any space. Conceived by design duo Juslin Maunula, the hand-tufted rug features a fascinating geometric pattern created by the rug’s gorgeous, pleated surface structure that changes direction in different parts of the rug. The varied structure adds tactility to the design and not only feels nice under your toes but also creates a lively play of light and shadow on the rug's surface.
Typically for Juslin Maunula, the inspiration for the Ruusukvartsi rug’s design comes from the realms of fashion and architecture – pleated fabrics and fluted stones and tiles in particular. The colour and layout are informed by the works of colour theorist Josef Albers and architect Carlo Scarpa, who has also influenced the name of the rug: Ruusukvartsi is Finnish for rose quartz, a stone Scarpa often favoured in his designs.
The Ruusukvartsi rug, handmade in India, 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.
