Lara Bohinc, internationally acclaimed British designer and founder of London based Bohinc Studio, has created a limited collection of rugs, wall hanging and accessories for the home. Inspired by the serenity of Japanese rock gardens and supported by the design sensibility and skill of Kasthall, the patterns and the materials form a mesmerizing expression of style, function and heritage.
Lara Bohinc signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine. A passionate believer in the universality of good design and her ability to create iconic beauty is well reflected in the From the Sun to the Moon collection, inspired by ancient Japanese Zen gardens. The collection comprises two rugs, two wall hangings, and a range of decorative cushions. The palette of muted pastels, earth and rust are drawn from nature, and all the products are produced in Kasthall’s own factory in Kinna.
All of the works contain a mix of different wool grades and yarn types. Lara has twisted Kasthall’s famous high quality, natural materials and taken them to new heights. The entire collection has been created using woollen yarns and, in some places, a mixture of woollen and flax yarns. Selected elements have been tufted using overspun felting yarn, with both cut and loop pile, creating a glorious bouclé loop texture.
