Jaime’s Hayon’s ‘Capitone’ has been pronounced Best Rug by Wallpaper* Magazine at this year’s Design Awards.
‘Capitone’ is a sumptuous, textural rug, whose diamond design is achieved by the topography of the wool pile. Using highly skilled weaving techniques, the pattern is carved by hand onto a plain hand-knotted rug, giving a plush 3-dimensional effect.
Hayon says of the design, “‘Capitone’ is an attempt to use a technique I love in furniture upholstery translated into a rug. It’s an unusual yet simple concept that brings to the eye feelings of warmth and comfort”.
Wallpaper* has published the winners in its February issue, which is dedicated to celebrating the best designs of the year.
