01 product description
The fun factor, which gave the collection the second part of its name, "Enjoy," does not end with these intense, positive colors. During a soccer match between two teams in the German Bundesliga (a relegation game between VFL Bochum and Borussia Mönchengladbach), the designer traced the ball's path using a digital pen on the monitor. He then combined the jumble of lines resulting from all the passes and shots on goal with the Bidjar pattern. The "offshoot" of the carpet had been created by the twentieth minute of the game, and its "little brother" was complete by half-time – a whole carpet trilogy was made in this way. The original Bidjar (not its namesake, which was sold during the commercial heyday of the Oriental carpet) has always been synonymous with quality and extreme robustness. In keeping with tradition, Kath therefore uses a particularly dense and thick pile for the Bidjar Enjoy collection. The carpets are knotted by hand over a period of months using hand-spun Tibetan highland wool, silk, and stinging-nettle fiber. The opulent "mother carpet" is made with traditional tassels while the two eroded "offshoots" are given a colored border – a bold brushstroke in the design that gives the carpet additional strength and underscores its high quality.

The imm Cologne is swiftly getting back on an even keel. And how are designers and manufacturers making use of the opportunity? A tour of the trade fair shows that they often resorted to the tried-and-true, reanimating and dressing it up for contemporary use. Even Konstantin Grcic opted for a tongue-in-cheek approach to a design classic.› To the article
