Spectrum – Phenomenon of Light
The ethereal phenomenon of light, an intricate tapestry woven from myriad hues, unfolds its mesmerising spectacle with particular splendour amidst the winter realms of the far north, where the celestial ballet of the northern lights graces the night sky.
This display, a testament to nature’s awe-inspiring artistry, serves as the profound muse for the JAN KATH collection, named SPECTRUM.
In a meticulous dance of craftsmanship, each knot within the SPECTRUM collection becomes a conduit, translating the intricate spectrum of light into the luxurious realms of wool and silk. In this delicate choreography, the fleeting brilliance of the moment is captured within the very fabric of the carpet, beckoning the beholder to immerse themselves in its spellbinding embrace.
The realisation of this artistic design unfolds with exquisite complexity, meticulously hand-knotted in the artisan workshops of Nepal. Up to forty different colours intertwine, blending seamlessly into one another, creating a sublime soft gradient that mirrors the elusive beauty of the northern lights.
The captivating symphony of colours inherent to the aurora borealis finds its eloquent translation in SPECTRUM. Jan Kath, after two decades of unwavering experimentation, now stands at the pinnacle of technical mastery, enabling the implementation of these graceful gradients. The transfers of northern light become immersed in a rich tapestry of colour, at times pulsating with life, manifesting as abstract swirls or ethereal cloud formations.
The SPECTRUM collection invites us to tread upon a floor adorned with dreams, where the northern lights continue their timeless ballet.
