Chaos Theory has been conceptualized and designed by Kavi. An internationally recognized designer, Kavi, has spent much of her life travelling the world and practicing diverse art forms, including painting, sculpture, etc. This influence clearly manifests itself through the unique blend of traditional and contemporary aesthetics in her rug designs. Enthused by natural materials, classic color palettes, and the distinctive work of artisans and craftspeople she works with; Kavi_s rugs are inspired by the purity and chaos in nature. Chaos Theory by Kavi, traces the beauty in nature’s seemingly cluttered patterns.
Natural forms in transition were studied for inspiration, and recreated on unexplored mediums with the help of batik to create unrestrained artwork. Each rug in this collection is created by hand knotting nearly 100,000 intricate knots of the finest hand-carded, hand-spun wool and bamboo silk in every square meter.
PROTEUS, from this collection was selected to be showcased at DOMOTEX, Hannover Souk Deluxe 2014 as part of a select group of the most innovative designs of the year. GAIA, from this collection emerged as a finalist at the Carpet Design Awards at DOMOTEX, Hannover.
