New Wave from kymo 
Design by Katharina Tannous

NEW WAVE is not just about the music scene of the early 1980s – now it’s also about a kymo FLOORWEAR® equally as quiet, wistful and fascinating. The small, overlapping ripples caused by raindrops hitting the water’s surface were the inspiration for Katharina Tannous’ design. Continuously moving, the lapsing waves create more and more new shapes. 

We are proud to announce that New Wave recently won the German Design Award 2021.

Product Overview
NEW WAVE is not just about the music scene of the early 1980s – now it’s also about a kymo FLOORWEAR® equally as quiet, wistful and fascinating. The small, overlapping ripples caused by raindrops hitting the water’s surface were the inspiration for Katharina Tannous’ design. Continuously moving, the lapsing waves create more and more new shapes.
This dynamism is not only emphasised in the design’s semi-offset circles, it is brought to life. This FLOORWEAR® piece maintains a certain mysticism through its tonal colouration, created by the mixing of the finest natural, matt New Zealand wool and delicate, shiny viscose.
NEW WAVE comes in six different standard colours, reflecting the urban lifestyle that characterised the new wave era: ‘black ink’, ‘the streets’, ‘melancholia’, ‘night sky’, ‘street light’ and ‘dark timber.’
We are proud to announce that New Wave recently won the German Design Award 2021.
