Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-20th Century – From the achromatic palette to the expressive, abstract design, this classically modern Moroccan rug is a complete embodiment of the beloved regional style. The free-flowing decorations seem to be the product of creative freedom and a spontaneous design process melded with ancient influences and symbolic traditions that are universal and artistically nonrestrictive. Using latticework grids, inset lozenge chains and common cultural motifs, weavers created a sleek, impressively modern design that retains its contemporary feel exceptionally well, without ever abandoning its historic roots. Much like the abstract Moroccan rugs that Marcel Breuer and other great designers craved, this exquisite Moroccan rug balances modernity and history exceptionally well and takes a fresh, energetic approach to design, a uniquely Moroccan talent that resulted in many timeless, intensely modern creations.
