Lumina

Lumina is an innovative tufted rug featuring tightly packed shiny wool loops, which flow across its surface. Designed by celebrated designers Felix Diener and Ulf Moritz, it has a highly original graphic and ‘designed’ look. The distinctive shine and colour richness that characterises Lumina comes from the two types of yarn used in its construction. One of these is a special New Zealand wool yarn, which is felted directly in the spinning process. Consequently, unlike most woollen yarns, it can be used to create loops, which are particularly smooth, clean, round and shiny. The other yarn is a polyester braid, which is also very smooth. This adds an elegant sheen and second colour dimension to the rug’s surface. As you look at shiny loops that play across the surface of Lumina, different matt and gloss tones emerge from the different yarns, as the light or your perspective changes. This effect gives the rug a particularly individual and vibrant look.

A steel tumbler with rubber studs rolls freely in a rotating drum and wears the surface of the test samples inside of the drum. After 5.000 and 20.000 turns the sample is examined and rated by five inspectors based on the changes in its surface structure and colour.

Rugs that meet the minimum requirements of the test are rated from 21 (worst) to 23 (best) for residential use and 31 (worst) to 33 (best) for residential and commercial use.

Care instructions rugs

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the rug looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the rug and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.

  • Stain removal

    Remove stains immediately. Place a clean, wet cotton cloth and leave it on the stain until it has absorbed it. If needed, dab the stain by working from the edge of the stain inwards. Do not rub to remove the stain. Bamboo viscose Do not walk on or rub a wet bamboo viscose rug, as this will damage the structure of the yarn. It will take a few days for a bamboo rug to fully dry. Silk rugs Every stain, including plain water, should only be treated with soda water. Vinegar or tap water should never be used. We always recommend professional cleaning of the rug when necessary.

  • Regular care

    Kvadrat rugs are made with care to last. To make sure your rug maintains its vitality and character over a long lifetime, it helps to take good care of it. We recommend vacuum cleaning your rug at least once a week using a vacuum cleaner set to medium power without applying a brush. Always vacuum in the direction of the pile. Please also rotate the rug frequently to prevent wear and fading in the same place. Ideally, the humidity in the room where the rug is located should be around 50%. If humidity falls below 40%, we recommend spraying your rug with water to avoid the yarn to become dry and brittle.
