The Haze collection, the second one designed by Begüm Cana Özgür, inspired by the harmony of colours drawn from nature at the moment when the haze appears. In this unique coevality, the colours speak to each other, generating a visual balance resulting from visual sensitivity; they interact, while becoming hard to control.
Unlike other creative processes, Haze is a rug devised directly on the loom, as the designer experimented with chromatic interactions and colour fading by means of mixing colours optically.
In this collection, a very simple graphic intention is pursued with the aim of highlighting colour in all its splendour. The design has been worked on from two perspectives: on the one hand, the colours themselves and their interactions; and on the other hand, the design of the texture, that is, the superficial graphic lines that follow the warp. The challenge was to strike the right balance between graphic design, number of warps and thickness of weft.
Haze is woven using 50% New Zealand wool and 50% Italian wool, a noble and warm material that is easy to look after and hard wearing. As Begum Cana Özgür points out, "This fiber restores in us that connection with earth and nature that we often miss so much in modern buildings.”
This collection is the culmination of a reflection on the meaning of contrast in colours (tone, value, temperature and saturation), in which the simplicity of the graphic design aspect gives way to the power of colour.
