Extra Large Rug Märta Måås-Fjetterström
A spectacular example of the model Bruna Heden design, designed by Måås-Fjetterström in 1931 and produced prior to 1941.
The composition of the flat-weave carpet is made up, exclusively, of geometric shapes. The majority of the pattern is made up of diamonds with stepped edges. A variation of Greek key interjects along the longest sides and tetrominos complete the border along the shortest edges of the rug. Symmetry governs the shapes in the design, however the colours used to 'fill' the shapes are asymmetric in places. This creates a subtle complexity which gives the piece its' longevity regards appreciation. Signed MMF.
