About the Item

Marianne Richter for Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB (MMF AB), flat weave carpet 'Fläder Röd', wool, Sweden, design 1943 An exceptional rare piece designed by female textile artist Marianne Richter in 1943. The carpet is made according to a flat weave technique. The layout showcases diverse abstract geometric shapes. The color that dominates the composition is red, alternated by orange, off-white and yellow. As with all her designs, Richter wove her initials ‘M R’ and AB MMF (meaning AB Märta Måås-Fjetterström) at the edge of the carpet. Born with an innate passion for composition, color and shape, Marianne Richter (1916-2010) emerged as a prominent figure in the world of textile art, leaving an indelible mark on the industry. Her journey as an artist began in her early years, where she showcased remarkable artistic talent. It was this raw aptitude that led her to pursue formal training at the Technical School in Stockholm. A significant chapter in Richter's illustrious career was her work for Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB, a renowned Swedish textile company. Joining the esteemed atelier in from 1942 onwards, she quickly made her presence felt with innovative contributions that breathed new life into the traditional craft. Her tenure at Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB marked a turning point for the company as Richter introduced daring color palettes, intricate patterns, and fresh concepts that still captivate many. Richter's artistic philosophy transcended mere aesthetics; it reflected her deep-rooted belief in the importance of preserving the cultural heritage of weaving while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of textile art. Through her meticulous craftsmanship and artistic vision, she elevated the status of woven textiles as true works of art.
