In order to create this exquisite rug collection, Laura Pozzi took it upon herself to create a unique collection made with a fusion of graphics and decor, as well as between raw materials and manual processing. The six resulting rugs are different in their own way, each of them having three intense chromatic variations and a sweet mix of several cultures and ages. These exquisite products create a lovely new visual language as we’re about to show you now.
The first example is High Curves, inspired by the Seventies and mixed into an unexpected wave of lines composes geometric designs that dance together. The rug has a bourgeois spirit with contemporary tones and bright colours.
Biloba is inspired by the movement of the leaves of the Ginko. This art piece translates this dynamic moment into a minimal geometric shape. This rug has a poetic aura to it, complemented by the magical and delicate levels of texture.
Up next is Ryu, an interpretation of the Bingata weaving technique, famous of Okinawa Island. This traditional textile processing is successfully combined with the lines of some iconic designers of the seventies. Ryu comes off as many things: a unique symbolic object, a stylistic paradigm, an evolution of memory for living spaces, between tradition and modernity.
Still on the Japanese spectrum is Kyu, with a special focus on the tradition of Bingata weaving and the contemporary lines of inspiration from the 1970s. This is a rug that dialogues between past and present, between classic elegance and intense colours, with its look marked by meticulous and unexpected details.
This one is inspired by a song you probably know. Mrs Robinson is a rug with curved lines inspired by 1968, the year that Simon & Garfunkel wrote the song of the same name. This consisted of a time period in which art, design and fashion were influenced by historical events. So as a tribute to those times, Mrs Robinson creates a new harmony around this revolution.
Lastly, we bring you The Museum. It’s an expanding form and colour in constant motion, whose design creates a surprising effect. This is another product that can be seen as a symbol, or even as a presence that surrounds and captivates the space in which it is located.
