JAN KATH is one of the most important carpet designers on the international stage. His designs have received numerous awards (Red Dot Design Award, Carpet Design Award, Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany). Carpets by Jan Kath can be found everywhere - in the homes of Arab kings, in Rupert Murdoch's New York penthouse, in the private suites of the Four Seasons in Cairo, on the luxury yachts of multinational oil companies or in the showrooms of major Parisian fashion labels.
Jan Kath is the third generation in a family of carpet dealers with branches in the Ruhr area and Berlin. Even as a small boy, he visited manufactories in Iran and Nepal with his father. These experiences sharpened his eye and awakened his basic understanding of colour combinations and proportions.
Inspired by numerous journeys through pulsating metropolises such as Paris, Istanbul, New York and Tokyo, Beirut, Sydney and last but not least through his home, the Ruhr area, with its archaic industrial culture, Jan Kath quickly developed his individual handwriting. While the appeal of the faulty, erosion and transformation plays a central role in his creations, Kath is "uncompromisingly conservative" when it comes to quality.
JAN KATH belongs to the best German interior design brands and has been honored in the book "Best of German Interior Design", selected by a committee of design experts with the support of the German Design Council.
