or Call to Order

Dashes, crafted by designer Daniel Costa for Kvadrat, presents a bold and dynamic design within a twill construc­tion. This flat woven rug rein­ter­prets the classic two-colored pied de poule pattern into a vibrant and multi­col­ored poly­di­men­sional graphic, adding depth and visual inter­est to any space.

The construc­tion of Dashes involves felted mill-spun yarns for both the weft and warp, enhanc­ing the rug’s texture and tactile quality. The warp consists of yarns in six differ­ent colors, alter­nat­ing between a plain color and a color­ful multi­col­ored stripe. Mean­while, the weft utilizes slightly thicker yarns in contrast­ing neutral colors, creat­ing a strik­ing inter­play of hues and textures.

Dashes is designed to comple­ment a variety of natural floor­ing mate­ri­als such as oak, slate, concrete, and terrazzo. Its versa­tile design makes it suit­able for medium to heavy resi­den­tial and commer­cial use, adding a touch of contem­po­rary elegance to any interior space.


Daniel Costa

Daniel Costa, a Paris-based artist, designer, and artisan, creates works that meld foreign materials with his unique vision. A graduate of The Design Academy Eindhoven's Man and Leisure Department with top honors, Costa is a versatile artist focusing on ceramics and textiles. His initial rug collections were crafted in Nepal and India, where he utilized local fibers to realize his creative concepts.

Costa's design ethos often incorporates an organic sensibility, seeking inspiration from every day and traditional materials to create unexpected and visually striking pieces. His distinctive style is exemplified in designs such as the Fringe rugs by Kvadrat.

Reflecting on his creative journey, Costa expresses gratitude for the inspiration he found in Nepal, which resonated with the landscapes of his youth. He spent two immersive years developing his rugs, artworks, and photographs, exploring outwardly and inwardly to deepen his creative exploration. This reflective process led him to new artistic heights, allowing him to merge his artistic vision with the rich cultural and material tapestry of distant lands.
