The designs of the Karlsruhe label “kymo” are placing markers in the times of industrialized and standardized mass production: every carpet is a specifically manufactured unicum and is therefor its very own aesthetic challenge for the designers.
Since material and processing require fine-tuned craftsmanship every sketch is being realized in well-selected manufactories. Guiding theme and inspiration for this first-class carpet ware comes from music – the designers view every carpet as a musical piece – an individual composition that combines harmony, rhythm and melody in chime.
For architects “kymo” is a flexible and versatile partner to install the carpets for product presentations, shop-projects and locations of numerous prestigious brands and luxury businesses – including Swaroski, Allianz Suisse, Swiss HQ Band and Art’otel of Amsterdam.
“Kymo” – founded 2005 by creatives of different fields in the Baden city Karlsruhe – features an intelligent connection of innovative, young design and excellent quality. Today the brand is represented worldwide by chief designer Eva Langhans in first-class design and furniture stores and has been awarded multiple times. Among others the label received the German Design Award, red dot Design Award, iF Award and the Good Design Award. Until today the designs are being created in the birthplace Karlsruhe; since October 2015 at the Kreativpark Karlsruhe – a conglomeration of creative businesses, architecture offices, IT manufactories and cultural organizations which besides the generous office space is inviting for a visit with a 100 qm showroom.
