The Polar Byzantine collection by Klaus Haapaniemi & Co. is storytelling in the form of rugs
Following on from the success of their previous partnership, Moooi have teamed with Klaus Haapaniemi for the second time with the release of a series of five rugs - adapting the designs from the recently launched 'Polar Byzantine' silk scarf collection.
Inspired by the narrative of the original poetic story by award winning Finnish author, Rosa Liksom, each of the carpets tells the story of magical Arctic animals, fleeing the melting landscape to live in an ice palace far away. Thanks to Moooi's advanced high resolution printing methods, each carpet has achieved an almost three dimensional quality and colour vibrancy - drawing you into the mystical world of the 'Polar Byzantine'. The collection was subsequently launched in Milan as part of the Salone del Mobile.
