The Magic Circles Rug is inspired by one of Kandinsky's most recognizable artworks and a famous color study, Farbstudie - Quadrate (Squares with Concentric Circles). Unrestricted to the arrangement of the circles, this artwork also bears witness to Kandinsky's gift of synesthesia (ability to see sounds and hear colors) and the major role it played in his artistic works. Kandinsky believed that color could stimulate physical and emotional responses if used in conjunction with form. It is a sort of experiment to confirm if colors can be heard when used on tangible objects. The disparity in the sizes and colors of the concentric circles allude to active abstraction.
The Kandinsky Collection is a renaissance of the artwork of Russian-born painter Wassily Kandinsky, acclaimed artist and pioneer in the pure abstraction and avant-garde art movements. As the artist once said that "Everything starts with a dot," so did this collection, which today has become a fully fledged series of 8 handmade rugs. The designs uphold the artist's commitment to the synesthesia of color, sound, and spiritual expression in art. His works linked with the Cosmic world inspired many motifs for this collection.
