STRUCTURES is a series of benches, ottomans and daybeds. The structure beneath each rug is a tool, an architectural support to lift the carpet from the floor to a new height, elevating it from its flat surface into a new dimension: furniture. The rich qualities of the woven and hand-knotted rugs loop around different frames, assembling a surface to take a pause on, sitting or reclining.
Creating this limited series for the Kinnasand LAB project I wanted for to bring the textures and richness of the rugs closer to your hands and body, experiencing the character of each individual rug of Kinnasand’s collection.
For the first series of STRUCTURES I have chosen to work with Harvest, Zenit and Kelim in a range of colours. This selection can be expanded, adapting new rug designs. The characters of STRUCTURES can be furthermore altered through choice of color of both rug and coating of the structure, monotone or varicolored.
In the design process I aimed for to develop structures, supporting the rugs with a base frame, secondary and almost invisible in design, hard and glossy in contrast to the soft, matt and absorbing surfaces of the rugs.
Material: Rugs in the qualities Harvest, Zenit and Kelim, powder coated steel tube in different colors.
