With its balanced tones and tightly woven recycled PET yarn, the Polli rug adds texture, warmth and cohesiveness to the home furnishing.
Polli is Normann Copenhagen’s new series of sustainable rugs made from 100% recycled post-consumer PET yarn and woven into discrete, mottled patterns. The plastic waste is pre-processed into short textile fibers, which are spun into a fine yarn and woven into soft, elegant, ultra-durable rugs that are easy to maintain and with minimal shedding.
The Polli rug comes in muted tones of sand and dark grey. A subtle play of green and blue is featured in two of the variants. Available in three different sizes of 100x200, 170x240 and 200x300 cm in all color options, the Polli rugs ensure holistic harmony in every room.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
