or Call to Order

Untitled_​AB13, envi­sioned by Alain Biltereyst for Kvadrat, explores geomet­ric abstrac­tion, employ­ing a dynamic inter­play of verti­cal, hori­zon­tal, and diag­o­nal lines to craft a capti­vat­ing compo­si­tion. The rhyth­mic arrange­ment of irreg­u­lar geomet­ric forms, rendered with crisp preci­sion, lends the rug a distinct sense of move­ment and disrupts equilibrium.

Drawing inspi­ra­tion from the inter­play of light and shadow, Untitled_​AB13 intro­duces a strik­ing contrast between its inverted color­ways: Sun Light and Sun. With its bold yet sophis­ti­cated aesthetic, Untitled_​AB13 is a versa­tile addi­tion to contem­po­rary inte­ri­ors, infus­ing spaces with energy and intrigue. Whether used as a state­ment piece or a subtle accent, this rug captures atten­tion and invites explo­ration, making it a dynamic focal point in any room.

Crafted with metic­u­lous atten­tion to detail and a keen sense of design, Untitled_​AB13 exem­pli­fies Biltereyst’s distinc­tive artis­tic vision and Kvadrat’s commit­ment to innovative craftsmanship. 


Alain Biltereyst

Alain Biltereyst's abstract artworks reflect his ongoing fascination with the visual elements of urban landscapes. Inspired by the vibrant functionality of commercial signage, including typography, logos, and advertising graphics, his works offer a purely visual and material experience devoid of narrative constraints. Often created on small, object-like panels, Biltereyst's pieces exhibit meticulous attention to layering, surface texture, and specific colors and shapes, often presented as a series that builds upon each other.

Based in Brussels, Biltereyst highlights the inherent beauty of everyday designs, such as manhole covers, fence patterns, or airplane logos. Working primarily on thick panels, he emphasizes layering, repetition, and the recurrence of specific motifs in color and shape. By isolating and reimagining elements from advertising and design, Biltereyst creates diminutive artworks that straddle the line between precious objects and fragments of design history. The carefully chosen scale and painterly surfaces draw viewers into a crafted homage to the world of advertising and design surrounding us.

Through his tile-like panels and more significant works, Biltereyst celebrates the convergence of historical abstraction with everyday aesthetics, treating his source material with reverence and transforming it into cherished discoveries within his artistic practice.
