Urban Vibe: Premium Norwegian Rug Designs Inspired by Modern Architecture

The urban vibe interior design is characterized by modern architecture, geometric designs, unique color combinations, sleek finishes, and clear open space. This interior theme may come in a wide variety of styles from earthy (reminiscing nature) to eclectic (mixing multiple design styles). It usually includes contrasting colors, textures, and other design elements yet provide a comfortable, casual, and relaxing ambiance. And one of the home decors that completes this interior design is a premium quality urban vibe-inspired rug. Check out the Volver’s rug designs inspired by the modern architecture below:

 

 

Urban

Urban rug design explores the relaton between the city and nature. It depicts Oslo city reflected in the fjord.

Ksenia Stanishevski, the designer, studied the works and sketches og prominent Bauhaus designers and textiles artists Anni and Josef Albers.

Their approach was to find a fine balance between complexity and simplicity in geometric compositions.

Urban rug color palette draws references from Mid-Century Modern art and interior design and fits well both together with modern classics and minimalistic contemporary interior styles.

 

 

Front

Front rug design depicts a building facade with multiple windows that reflect dayligh and city life.

This design is optical art by Yaacov Agam (an Israeli sculptor and experimental artist) and Ricard Anuszkiewicz (an American artist).

Front design combines color and geometrical grid to create a vibrant surface that looks different depending on the angle the rug is viewed from and appears to move.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stråler

Stråler (´rays´ in Norwegian) refers to Aurora lights, which have a special spot in the Nordic lifestyle. Based on Norse mythology, a legend narrates that female Nordic warriors possessed the shield of Valkyrie, which reflected Aurora lights. 

It is also believed that Aurora is a glowing arch that leads the dead warriors to Valhalla,  their final resting place.

Stråler design is inspired by Constructivism, with the brokn fractions of geometrical shapes. The color palette is derived from Mid-Century Modern movement.

 

  

 

Dahlia

Dahlia is an urban-vibe-inspired rug derived from a beautiful, delicate wildflower with the same name.

The rug is a resut of collaboration between a prominent Norwegian colour specialist Dagny Thurmann-Moe and the founder of Volver Ksenia Stanishevski.

Modern architecture and the 1930s functionalism influenced the conceptualization of this rug design as evidenced by its flowing geometric shapes. Dahlia has an abstract pattern with interlacing colors, including brick reds, dark maroons,  auburn, and plum purples. This modern-elegant rug design is also accentuated with pitch black and cadmium orange, setting an overall warm tone in your living space.

 

 

Wall

Wall is an urban rug design that conveys the withering of materials under time pressure. This highly textured rug has a shimmering surface in different shades, expertly hand-tufted in bamboo viscose and pure wool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Cement 

Cement is an urban-inspired rug masterpiece in itself. It’s a hand-tufted carpet that resembles the sun rays scattered on a concrete plate. Volver’s Cement carpet is an epitome of urban living, that one can perfectly match with any furniture piece or appliance finish.
