Märta Måås-Fjetterström with

Marco Zanini

I consider the remarkable chance to design a new rug for Märta Måås-Fjetterström the crowning of my long journey in creativity. Having happily lived with MMF rugs in my home for years, I immediately understood that the unique task was unlike any other opportunity I have ever embraced. My approach intended to be humble since the start, and simplicity is the guiding principle I followed. ‘Keep It Simple’ is my mantra, after all. My Swedish roots indeed informed the pattern, and hence stripes are a direct reference to the traditional trasmattor I so much love and have enjoyed since childhood. On the other hand, my penchant for colors is inevitably influenced by my Italian origins, as is the name of the new rug, A Righe.
