Enhancing the global influence and artistic flair of the Wynwood District, celebrated rug designer Jan Kath launched a mono brand Miami showroom together with Jacques Miodownik of Rug Revolution.
The grand opening celebration took place on Tuesday, Nov. 18, 7 p.m., at the new location, 221 NW 23 St. The opening party included cocktails and light bites with music by celebrity DJ Mauricio Parra.
One of the world’s most in-demand designers of hand-knotted rugs, Kath creates carpets for private residences, corporate headquarters, boutique hotels, and luxury fashion brands. He purposefully breaks with conventional styles and throws strict design rules overboard while combining classic elements from oriental carpets with contemporary, minimalist design, crafting rugs that are recognized works of art and are exhibited in art and design museums around the world.
“Jan Kath is known for his distinctive signature which is absolutely style-defining. He is a craftsman who breaks the rules to create modern designs with traditional techniques. We are thrilled to be part of his long-planned vision of launching a store in Miami,” said Miodownik, owner of Rug Revolution.
Jan Kath rugs, which are made from highquality raw materials using fair trade practices, are inspired by his trips to vibrant cities across the globe and are knotted by hand according to centuries-old traditions. Unique handmade materials combined with handmade production techniques give each rug its own character.
In addition to the new Miami location, Kath’s other showrooms and stores are located in Bochum, Berlin, Cologne, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Munich, New York, and Vancouver.
