“The lively surface structure, bold use of colors, and the regularity and geometry of modern architecture form a controlled beautiful whole.”
–Laura Juslin and Lilli Maunula, designers of Juslin Maunula
Designer Juslin Maunula —
Juslin Maunula is a design studio and brand founded by fashion designer Laura Juslin and architect Lilli Maunula. Juslin Maunula wants to create a strong connection between fashion and architecture in their designs. The world they have created for their brand consists of rich use of colors and insightful color combinations, an experimental combination of materials and structures, and clear lines in designs.
High-Quality Artisan Work —
The Akaatti rug is hand-tufted by skilled artisans in India, where the Finarte rug collection has been crafted for over 25 years. Our aim is to combine the local weaving heritage and the Nordic design sensibility to create a shared view on beauty and sustainability.
Pure wool —
The special feeling of Akaatti is emphasized in its production method – Akaatti is handtufted from pure wool. As a material wool is easy to take care of as it rejects dirt naturally. Every Finarte rug is a unique, hand-made item.
Juslin Maunula x Finarte —
Juslin Maunula designed a collection of six wool rugs for Finarte’s Galleria collection. For these rugs, Juslin Maunula got the inspiration for composing color areas and shapes from the work of color theorist Josef Albers and the design language of Architect Carlo Scarpa. All the rugs have had their names after the Italian stone qualities that Carlo Scapa prefers in his work.
