Sonya Winner is a designer who creates rugs that look like they are layers of colour on top of each other, that where overlapped, create fugitive colours. Naming many of her designs after colourists such as Josef Albers and Henri Matisse, and even having a rug named ‘Colour Wheel’, Winner places colour at the heart of her designs.

The rugs are hand made and the yarns dyed to match the intended colour palette.

Heres a nice video which shows some of her design process and colour selection including swatches, matching yarns and translating to digital.
